Losing to Triple H is Better Than Beating Daniel Bryan

Jack WindhamAnalyst IMarch 24, 2011

Professional wrestling is one of those rare places where a loss can mean more than a win.

At Wrestlemania last year, Sheamus was booked against Triple H. While his night ended with his counting the lights (taking a loss), he was far from being a loser. He proved to the world that he could hang in there with one of the biggest stars in the business.

For this year, Sheamus has been booked in a United States Heavyweight Championship defense against Daniel Bryan.

Because neither wrestler has a lot of momentum, it could go either way. Sheamus could very well walk out of Wrestlemania with the title in hand and a win in the record books.

When Sheamus' career is over and done with, he'll look back and consider Wrestlemania 26 to be the bigger moment.

If you need another example, then look no further than the Miz.

At Wrestlemania 26, he teamed up with Big Show to defeat John Morrison & R Truth in a tag team title match. That win won't mean as much as his losing to John Cena in the WWE Heavyweight Championship match at Wrestlemania this year.

The same amount of people might be in the arena, but more eyes will be on you if you're working with the most relevant guys on the show.
