WrestleMania 28 Results: Sheamus Defeats Daniel Bryan To Become New World Heavyweight Champion

The opening match of the main card at WrestleMania 28 on Sunday was for the World Heavyweight Championship. Aberdeen's own Daniel Bryan defended his title against the 2012 Royal Rumble winner, the Irish warrior Sheamus.

The match was over before it began, as Bryan turned around to get a good-luck kiss from his girlfriend, AJ. He turned back to Sheamus and was hit with a huge Brogue Kick and covered for the pin, making Sheamus the new World Heavyweight Champion. Official time of the match was 18 seconds.

Bryan had tons of vocal supporters in the crowd, which should make his fellow Washingtonians very proud.
