5 WWE Superstars you forgot had won Money In The Bank
There have been many forgettable Money In The Bank winners over the past 12 years, but here are the top five that spring to mind.
The 2018 Money In The Bank pay-per-view is now less than a month away and we will see two more superstars picking up that famous briefcase. Historically, the Money In The Bank contract was seen as something that changed many stars lives, and in some cases, even managed to kick-start the careers of some of the younger winners.
Of course, this isn't always the case; there are three superstars who have failed to win the title after cashing in their contracts, and there are countless others whose historic wins have been forgotten. Here our are top five forgotten Money in the Bank winners:
#5 - Rob Van Dam
It was just the second Money In The Bank ladder match in WWE history back at WrestleMania 22 when Rob Van Dam shocked the world by becoming Mr. Money In The Bank. His predecessor Edge had cashed in his contract on John Cena earlier that year and RVD eventually did the same thing, but he became the first man in history to give notice to his opponent prior to the cash in so that he could ensure that Cena would be at ECW One Night Stand.
RVD was victorious after Edge invaded the match wearing a motorcycle helmet and speared Cena before Paul Heyman made his way to the ring and counted the pinfall to not only crown a new WWE Champion but also the first ECW Champion.
