5 greatest Money In the Bank winners of all time
Money in the Bank PPV has become one of the biggest shows of the year. The contract match has the potential to establish the next top star of WWE.
Different people have handled the briefcase in very different ways. Some people never had it long enough for it to matter, others tried to downplay the fact that they even had it so people wouldn’t expect a cash in, and some treated the briefcase like the title itself.
We have seen a variety of success stories from cashing in the contract, some men have “failed” to make that next step to the main event, and some didn't. So, which five men have managed to get the most success from winning the contract? Let's take a look.
#5 Seth Rollins
Money in the bank in 2014 marked Seth Rollins’ true rise to superstardom in the WWE. Going against the five other competitors including his Shield-brother Dean Ambrose, Rollins became the first member of the Shield to win the Money in the Bank Ladder match.
The chaos that ensued would prove to be one of the most personal and chaotic rivalries of 2014. The Architect of The Shield against The Lunatic Fringe.
After weeks of attacking each other, and interfering in each other’s matches, Rollins and Ambrose would clash for the first time in the Money In The Bank ladder match, and it was absolutely fantastic to witness.
As always, it was spectacularly brutal, with Rollins, in particular, taking some ridiculous bumps. The finish of the match came when Kane came out to shatter the dreams of Dean Ambrose and help Rollins retrieve the briefcase.
Rollins spent almost a year with that briefcase before finally deciding to make the move at the Grandest Stage Of Them All.
After being defeated at the hands of The Viper earlier in the night, Rollins cashed in on the WWE World Heavyweight Championship main event between Reigns and Lesnar.
Rollins entered the ring mid-March and cashed in his MITB briefcase and made the match a triple threat.
He would then knock Lesnar out of the ring, hit a curb stomp on Reigns to win the championship and leave WrestleMania as the first MITB holder to ever cash in at WrestleMania.
