3 best and 3 worst WWE Money in the Bank winners
- These WWE Superstars shocked the world when they cashed in their Money in the Bank contracts.
Much like the Royal Rumble, the MITB match can make a star overnight, as one win gives a Superstar a guaranteed title shot against either a World or Women's Champion, at any time, anywhere.
Since its inception at WrestleMania 21, 70 Superstars have attempted to become Money in the Bank winners, though only a handful have.
But just winning the match isn't enough, as the winner must then topple the champion.
And even if they do that, their reign as the top star may not last long, for a multitude of reasons.
Here are three WWE Money in the Bank winners who did great things after winning the contract, as well as three who did very poorly.
#3 Worst: Sheamus 2015
By 2015, the Money in the Bank ladder match had become a staple of WWE.
But despite the match often being used to elevate younger stars, the 2015 bout was won by Sheamus, already a three-time World Champion.
Biding his time, Sheamus wouldn't cash in until Survivor Series, blindsiding Roman Reigns, who had just won the title.
A thinly veiled attempt to get the fans to cheer for the Big Dog, Sheamus' reign would be as uneventful as his time as Mr. Money in the Bank.
Beaten by Reigns on the December 14 edition of Monday Night RAW, the win was a historic night for the Samoan but showed that the company no longer saw the Irishman as a top star.
Now nearly four years later, it's unlikely we'll ever see the Great White as World Champion ever again.
