Video: Daniel Bryan loses to Sheamus in 18 seconds at WrestleMania 28

WWE has released the full match video of Daniel Bryan losing the world heavyweight championship to Sheamus at WrestleMania 28.

Ah, yes, one of the bleakest moments in every smark fan's professional wrestling existence, Daniel Bryan's 18 second loss too Sheamus at WrestleMania 28 back on April 1, 2012, at Sun Life Stadium in Miami, Florida, has been released by WWE on YouTube.

Of course we would post it.

What's so great about watching this back, though, is you can tell from the outset that Bryan was so ridiculously over with the Miami crowd that this was the exact result he needed to really become a big star in the promotion. It seems crazy to think as much but the backlash from his losing in 18 seconds in the opening match of the card created a bigger star than WWE was ever willing to make out of him.

To this day, Bryan is as over as anyone else on the roster, despite the fact that he's been bumped down to the mid-card in a tag team with Kane.

It all started with that kiss from AJ. Sorry, rancho!
