WrestleMania has come and gone, and a large portion of wrestling fans and members of the Internet wrestling community enjoyed this years biggest event. But what they were scratching their heads about is why the World Heavyweight Championship match between Daniel Bryan and Sheamus was so short.

And some new information has surfaced which might give us an answer.

According to Rajah.com, WWE Creative wanted to make the World Heavyweight Championship Match between Daniel Bryan and Sheamus the shortest match in WrestleMania history. That match did not beat the previous record of Chavo Guerrero vs. Kane at WrestleMania XXIV, which currently stands at eight seconds.

The Sheamus-Daniel Bryan Match lasted for a total of 18 seconds. When extremely short matches occur in the WWE, they are booked that way because one wrestler who is involved in the match is seriously injured. So having a very quick match lessens the chances of further aggravating that injury.

A rumor was circulating around Facebook that Daniel Bryan suffered a herniated disc in his back, and would be out of action for at least three to six months.

Fortunately, that rumor was just that, and there was no actual information to back it up. It begs the bigger question on why WWE Creative would de-value the World Heavyweight Championship by having it booked in the shortest match in WWE history.

Many wrestling fans will be wondering that same question for years to come.
