#4 Daniel Bryan vs Sheamus - Wrestlemania 28

People still talk about this match for all the wrong reasons - Daniel Bryan's first World title match at Wrestlemania ended in 18 seconds following the Brogue Kick from Sheamus. While the match was disappointing, the buildup wasn't any better either.

Bryan vs Sheamus for the World Heavyweight title did not excite many people. The two had a singles match on the pre-show for the previous Wrestlemania, and there wasn't much build for this one as well. Both were overshadowed in comparison with the fantastic build-up to the WWE Championship match featuring CM Punk and Chris Jericho

CM Punk was well into his historic run as WWE Champion and he was held in much greater esteem than Bryan. Even though Sheamus won the Royal Rumble after eliminating Chris Jericho, the match between Punk and Jericho had a better build.

The World Heavyweight title feud featured more of Bryan ill-treating his valet AJ Lee rather than any explosive exchange with Sheamus.

With the Rock vs John Cena match taking all the media attention and the WWE title considered to be priority over the World Heavyweight title, Bryan vs Sheamus was a disaster before it even began.
