Backstage News On Daniel Bryan Dropping The World Heavyweight Championship To Sheamus

Believe it or not, WWE actually wanted Sheamus vs. Daniel Bryan at tonight's Wrestlemania XXVIII pay-per-view to beat the time for Chavo Guerrero vs. Kane for the ECW Championship at Wrestlemania XXIV in 2008. They didn't come close as Kane squashed Chavo for the belt in 8 seconds while Sheamus' victory took 18 seconds.

So far, I haven't heard anything about Bryan being injured or any kind of trouble and the outcome of tonight's match was what they wanted to do from a creative perspective. The crowd turned on the outcome and loud "Daniel Bryan" chants were audible at the beginning of almost every match prior to the stellar Hell in a Cell bout.
