Speaking in the third person, Daniel Bryan gets fans to boo him

In an era of cool heels who fans want to cheer, a wide eyed Daniel Bryan got the live crowd at SmackDown to boo him.

Bryan came to SmackDown to explain himself but also to talk in the third person.

Bryan didn’t just refer to himself once, he built his entire promo around talking to himself or about himself entirely in the third person. Bryan’s promo started out slow but closed with enough authority that you were excited to see where this heel turn could take him.

Then Bryan said “Daniel Bryan’s dreams kicked AJ Styles in the balls” and maybe all this was working out after all.

This works. Bryan talking to himself and to his WWE Championship to a hard reboot on everything we’ve seen from him since the Yes Movement first began in 2013.

How do feel about Daniel Bryan becoming a heel again?
