5 most memorable moments from the MITB PPV history
We are getting closer to this year's edition of the PPV. The Women's Money in the Bank match is definitely going to happen but it's for WWE to decide whether they want a single briefcase for men or separate contracts for both RAW and SmackDown. It's always exciting to see who wins the contract and how they cash-in.
MITB matches were earlier held on WrestleMania but were given a separate PPV in 2010. It has since provided a lot of moments, some of which are presented below.
#5 Paul Heyman betrays CM Punk - Money in the Bank 2013
Paul Heyman's relationship with CM Punk is well documented. He is the guy that brought CM Punk to the limelight and took him under his wing when nobody believed in him. He was a very vocal supporter of Punk when the future "Best in the World" was on the verge of getting fired from the company.
Their relationship was woven into a storyline and Heyman started accompanying Punk in his matches. Punk took a hiatus from the WWE TV for a few months after his loss against the Undertaker at WrestleMania.
When Punk came back as a face, he wanted to walk his own path. He tried to convince Heyman not to accompany him anymore. This led to frustration building up in Heyman. And, when Punk was about to unhook the MITB contract, Heyman backstabbed him with a ladder.
This was a shocking moment in itself but it leads to a match between the "Beast" Brock Lesnar and the "Best in the World" CM Punk makes it memorable.
