WrestleMania 30 results: Daniel Bryan wins the WWE world heavyweight title



After Daniel Bryan defeated Triple H earlier in the evening, he was added to the main event match, a WWE world heavyweight title bout opposite reigning titleholder Randy Orton and Royal Rumble winner Batista. By the time all was said and done, Bryan walked out of tonight's (Sun., April 6, 2014) WrestleMania 30 pay-per-view (PPV) on the WWE Network at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome as the new WWE world heavyweight champion.


This was a really insane match, mostly because it was overbooked to the max. Triple H and Stephanie McMahon did a run in and were both taken out by Bryan via suicide dive and sledgehammer shot. Then, Batista and Orton teamed up for a HUGE spot where Bryan was put through a table via a combo Batista Bomb/RKO.

Immediately after, he did a stretcher job and Orton and Batista worked the match for a brief period until Bryan made a comeback. They had a crazy back-and-forth match from there. Ultimately, Bryan hit the flying knee on Orton and followed up with the YES! Lock on Batista to get the tap and the victory.

The streak may be over but the confetti fell on Bryan while he held up the two world titles, finally triumphant as the face of WWE.

That's best for business.
