      Sheamus doesn’t deserve to step foot in a ‘Mania ring. He doesn’t have any type of wrestling ability

      I think this would be a great match for Daniel Bryan in terms of having him become a star. This would also be good for Sheamus cause with his ring work and numerous spots he can have bryan take the possibilities is limitless. If he could have a great mania match with HHH given Hunters age imagine the possibilities with someone as skilled as daniel Bryan. Plus I think its about time Daniel go up aginst a big name like Sheamus to start developing him as a contender for the wwe title. Daniel Bryan has got the potential to do so and that match with miz on raw proved it (althought frankly having to lose to miz the way he did to me wads dumb). If wwe wants to do this right they have to let Daniel Bryan win and get the pin Sheamus so as to build a sort of momentum for Daniel to go for a wwe title match (which should happen) and possibly drop the US title to like DiBiasi (he needs it the mans a great talent and the fact that he’s reduced to jobbing is just sad). The upside is that sheamus can take this and fuel a much better and later deserved push for the wwe title. Even when sheamus loses he still looks great. He looks like a dominant force while also putting someone over which is a rare find when it comes to wrestlers. So please make Sheamus and Daniel Bryan happen wwe and let it be a great match that will but Bryan over as a great underdog (like when machoman vs ricky the dragon steamboat, if you notice after that ricky got way more exposure) and give him a wwe title shot and maybe, with enough time of maturing bryan as a main card wrestler, win it. Its a win win for both people in the match.
