On last night’s episode of SmackDown Live, WWE Champion Daniel Bryan didn’t wrestle on-screen. Instead, he attacked AJ Styles after his submission victory over The Miz. The Miz went on to compete in his Mixed Match Challenge match, before challenging longtime rival Daniel Bryan for the WWE Title in a dark match.
However, before the match got underway, Bryan got on the mic and singled out a young WWE fan. Bryan saw the fan was holding a birthday sign, and told him “congratulations, you’re stupid.” Check out the video here:
Bryan turned heel several weeks ago when he defeated AJ Styles for the WWE Title on SmackDown Live. He nailed Styles with a low blow during their match before picking up the win with a flying knee. Bryan has now been working as a heel and calls himself “New Daniel Bryan.” He’ll defend his WWE Title against Styles in their rematch at the upcoming Tables Ladders and Chairs pay-per-view.
