However, there have been several wrestlers who competed in the risk-filled match who did not really fit in. Wrestlers you wouldn't associate Money in the Bank ladder matches with. Most of these wrestlers were in the matches between 2010 and 2013, when there were two Money in the Bank briefcases - one for RAW, and one for Smackdown.
In this day and age, it is genuinely surprising and odd when you find out that these superstars once competed in a Money in the Bank Ladder Match. Prepare to be surprised, as we glimpse at five superstars who you forgot were in Money in the Bank ladder matches in the past.
#1 Santino Marella (2012)
Santino Marella had been involved in many high profile situations during his WWE career, so it wasn't really a surprise at that time. But while looking back, it seems quite bizzare that he was in those scenarios. In 2012, Santino was a second away from walking into Wrestlemania as World Champion. Later that same year, he was involved in the Smackdown briefcase match.
The 2012 Smackdown Money in the Bank Ladder Match was a really good one, but did involve a few surprising names including Santino, Tyson Kidd, a newly debuted Damien Sandow, and someone else we will get to. There was a moment in the match where the Milan Miracle was alone in the ring and could have unhooked the briefcase but instead, he took out his cobra sock and tried taking down the briefcase using his cobra hand movement. There is no place for things like that in Money in the Bank ladder matches.
