Daniel Bryan and other 24-hour title reigns

Although Daniel Bryan's two WWE Championship reigns have both ended abruptly – due to WWE COO Triple H paving the way for Randy Orton to cash in his Money in the Bank contract at SummerSlam and then stripping Bryan of the title the evening after he won it at Night of Champions – the bearded wonder can look to the immortal words of Alfred, Lord Tennyson, “’Tis better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all.” If that doesn’t work, how about “misery loves company”? After all, Bryan is far from the first Superstar to hold a title for a mere 24 hours. WWE.com explores other champions whose reigns similarly lasted just one day or less.
