Bryan Danielson On The Negative Impacts Of Social Media On Wrestling
During his interview with SI, Bryan Danielson spoke on how social media makes the divide between AEW and WWE fans worse. Here’s what he had to say:
After I got a little promo and I said, I love where I worked before, that got a huge chorus of boos. But its true. I think that also speaks to its not just a wrestling culture thing. I think theres also a tribalism in our country right now. The narrative of being on one side or the other, and I think most people are actually very rational and will enjoy both sides, but I think the harder edges, and those are the people who tend to speak out more. If you like both, youre not going to go on social media and say anything controversial thats going to get a lot of responses. If you say, Oh AEW was great last night, but I really enjoyed this about WWE as well. Nobodys gonna say anything. You just do one or the other. I think thats one of the negatives of social media is it tends to emphasize the harshness in either direction.
