"I'm Just Being Me" - Bryan Danielson Doesn't Consider Recent AEW Actions A Heel Turn

Danielson has been booed by recent AEW crowds

Bryan Danielson says he doesn't consider his actions in All Elite Wrestling in the last couple of weeks as a heel turn, saying he is just being himself.

Danielson was heavily booed by the AEW Dynamite crowd in Virginia last week as he made reference to winning Titles at WWE WrestleMania and called out new AEW World Champion 'Hangman' Adam Page.

The American Dragon then defeated Evil Uno, before doing the same to Colt Cabana on this week's Dynamite.

However, while Danielson does enjoyed being booed, he doesn't necessarily think he has gone full heel.

Speaking on Busted Open Radio, when asked about his 'heel turn', Danielson said: "I don’t know what people are talking about. I thought the people of Virginia were giving me a really tough time. So, I gave them a little bit of a tough time back. 

"I don’t think anything I said was wrong or even mean. To say, ‘hey, congratulations Hangman Page, you are the World Champion. I am a little disappointed it’s not Kenny Omega because that’s who I wanted to beat for the AEW Championship. I am a little bit disappointed that you’re not wrestling tonight, and you haven’t been wrestling that much and I have been wrestling every single week since I’ve come to AEW.’ I don’t think any of that is overtly mean.

"I’m not going to lie, I do enjoy being booed. There’s something so fun about it. So I might lean into that a little bit more. But there’s nothing I said that was wrong or mean or anything like that. Now because of that, I think I am probably going to kick all of his friends’ heads in. But I think I would be doing that anyway.

"I don’t consider it a heel turn, I am just being me."
