Bryan Danielson argues that in AEW, he hasn’t turned heel.

At the outset of last week’s AEW Dynamite, Bryan Danielson appeared to turn heel. He interrupted Hangman Page’s AEW World Championship celebrations, chastised him for not defending the title sooner, mocked the Norfolk, Virginia crowd, and threatened to beat up every member of The Dark Order before his ultimate title bout with Page. He began by defeating Evil Uno, and on tonight’s Dynamite, he will face Colt Cabana. While many fans have compared “The American Dragon’s” attitude to his famous Ring of Honor persona, the former WWE star rebuffed the notion that he is now a heel on Busted Open Radio.

“I’m not sure what they’re talking about.” I was under the impression that the people of Virginia were being unfair to me. So I retaliated by giving them a hard time,” Danielson added (ht Wrestling Inc). “I don’t believe anything I said was incorrect or particularly hurtful. ‘Hey, Hangman,’ I’d want to say. You are the World Champion, Page. I’m unhappy it’s not Kenny Omega, since he was the man I wanted to beat for the AEW Championship. I’m a little disappointed that you’re not wrestling tonight, because you haven’t wrestled in a long time, whereas I’ve wrestled every week since I’ve joined AEW.’ None of that strikes me as particularly cruel. He continued, “I’m not going to lie, I adore being booed.” “There’s something incredibly enjoyable about it.” So I’m going to lean a little further into it. But there was nothing I said that was improper, harsh, or hurtful in any way. As a result, I’m quite sure I’m going to kick all of his pals’ heads in. But I’m quite sure I’d do it anyway. I don’t think of it as a heel turn; I’m just being myself.” “I look at these three years as my final three as a full-time wrestler.” @davidlagreca1 @THETOMMYDREAMER @AEW (hashtag)AEWDynamite @bryandanielson talks about becoming the best version of himself at this point in his career @davidlagreca1 @THETOMMYDREAMER @AEW (hashtag)AEWDynamite (hashtag) AEWFULL podcast interview: https:t.coOfYp4fPQUa pic.twitter.comSzDX0f5fIg What are your thoughts on Danielson’s ostensibly new direction with his character?
