Daniel Bryan won the WWE world heavyweight title in the main event at WrestleMania ... that actually happened

It's a real thing that we'll always have to look back on.

This past week has been one of the most emotionally draining weeks in professional wrestling that I can ever remember, and certainly the most emotionally draining since I took over here at Cageside Seats. So much has happened.WrestleMania 30 has come and goneUndertaker's streak ended in a loss to Brock LesnarMonday Night Raw the next night was one big chanting celebration of wrestling, Paul Heyman may have cut the greatest promo of all time, and, of course, the shocking -- if only because of the timing -- death of Ultimate Warrior.

So many ups and downs.

And while no one could ever blame you for focusing on perceived negatives or mourning the loss of a legendary figure, I can't wanted to write this as a reminder that an amazing thing happened this past Sunday night (April 6, 2014) at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, Louisiana.

I'm not talking about Stone Cold Steve Austin, The Rock, and Hulk Hogan all sharing the ring the together. I'm not talking about Cesaro recreating the iconic WrestleMania 3 body slam on Big Show to win the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal.

I'm talking about Daniel Bryan.

He wrestled Triple H for 25 minutes in the opening match of the pay-per-view (PPV) and went over clean. Then they ran an injury angle just so he could overcome and wrestle 23 minutes in the main event later in the evening where, despite a run-in from Triple H and Stephanie McMahon, he went over clean once again, this time to win the WWE world heavyweight championship title.

It happened. It actually happened.

Daniel Bryan won the WWE world heavyweight title in the main event of WrestleMania.

That's a real thing that occurred.

YES! YES! YES!
