Not everything about social media is positive.
Bryan Danielson spoke about some of the negative impacts of social media on the pro wrestling business during a recent appearance on the Sports Illustrated Media Podcast for an in-depth interview covering all things pro wrestling.
Featured below is an excerpt from the interview where he touches on this topic with his thoughts.
"After I got a little promo and I said, ‘I love where I worked before,’ that got a huge chorus of boos. But it’s true. I think that also speaks to it’s not just a wrestling culture thing. I think there’s 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, you’re not going to go on social media and say anything controversial that’s 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.’ Nobody’s gonna say anything. You just do one or the other. I think that’s one of the negatives of social media is it tends to emphasize the harshness in either direction."
