Although his title reign lasted all of five minutes, and maybe not even that, Daniel Bryan's WWE championship victory over John Cena in the main event of SummerSlam was special enough to win "Moment of the Year" for 2013 in the Cageside Seats Year-End Awards.
You know you're over as hell when your title win manages to hold up despite everything that came after it, like a Triple H heel turn, an immediate loss of said title, multiple screwjobs, and a complete removal from the title scene just a couple months later.
Maybe one day this will happen again and Bryan will win another CSS award. Until then.
