It appears that Bryan Danielson has turned heel.

"Hangman" Adam Page kicked off this week's episode of AEW Dynamite to celebrate his AEW World Title win at Full Gear on Saturday night. Danielson walked out to the ring to congratulate Page on the win but said that he would have rather faced the former champion Kenny Omega.

Danielson also said that Page didn't want to face him tonight and when he won the World Title at WrestleMania, he wrestled on the next night. That drew boos from the hometown crowd in Virginia. The promo came off very heelish and Danielson did his best to antagonize the crowd. There was a pull-apart brawl between Danielson and Page before they went to the commercial.

After the commercial break, Danielson beat Evil Uno in a singles match and then after the match he promised to kick the heads of all of the members of the Dark Order. Danielson then said that he wants to face Colt Cabana since he's from Chicago and AEW will be there next week.

It was made clear that at least for this feud and possibly beyond that Danielson is a heel right now.
