Bryan Danielson is a household name in the world of professional wrestling right now. He spent several years honing his craft in various pro wrestling promotions all over the world before making his way to WWE. Danielson also recently explained why fans are now booing him in AEW.
Last month, Bryan Danielson effectively turned heel in his feud against Adam Page for the AEW World Title. This move was seen as a huge positive for fans. However, others were not a fan of this heel turn whatsoever.
While speaking with TV Insider, Bryan Danielson talked about fans booing him in his feud against Adam Page. Danielson explained that it is because fans simply care about Adam Page so much that they have now turned on Danielson.
“It’s all a lot easier when they care about someone. If Hangman Page wasn’t someone people cared about, it would have been very easy for the crowd to turn on him, rather than me. They love this guy. I haven’t done anything so mean or dastardly, yet. I try to not make great changes in my character. I think my time in AEW, I’ve been aggressive, a little bit of a jerk [who] people like. But it’s not hard to switch to a jerk who people don’t like.”
Bryan Danielson is set to challenge Adam Page for the AEW World Championship at AEW Winter Is Coming later this month. It remains to be seen who will win the match.
