Ranking Money in the Bank cash-ins from at Wrestlemania 21-26
The Money in the Bank was once a staple of Wrestlemania and one man helped define it with his ultimate opportunities
No one superstar is more synonymous with the TLC and Money in the Bank match more than the rated R superstar Edge. The man would win the first ever Money in the Bank match at Wrestlemania 21 and cash in nearly a year later. For much of Money in the Bank's history during it's Wrestlemania years, Edge defined the concept with one win and two cash in's.
Why is that?
In every cash in involving a Money in the Bank winner from Wrestlemania (before the concept became its own pay per view), the cash in has in some form or the other involved Edge. This makes the time with Money in the Bank spent from Wrestlemania an interesting anomaly and Edge its innovator.
As such it is interesting to view the cash in's from Wrestlemania 21 to 26 and rank Edge's involvement in them accordingly.
Jack Swagger Cashes in on Chris Jericho beaten by Edge, Smackdown 2010
Edge's return from injury in 2010 came with a splash, the fans were all for the former greatest WWE villain of the past decade. However, as his program with Chris Jericho developed, things were quick to turn sour. It didn't help that Edge failed to win the World Heavyweight championship from his rival.
What he managed to do was more shocking, Edge destroyed Jericho not once but twice including the Smackdown after Wrestlemania. This opened up the chance for Wrestlemania 26's Money in the Bank winner Jack Swagger to cash in his contract. It was the most peripheral way for Edge to affect the final Wrestlemania briefcase cash in, allowing Swagger to secure his one and only world championship.
It wasn't really a great run for the All American and he didn't even get to face either Jericho or Edge for the World title. Yet Edge was there, just a year before his eventual retirement still changing the face of the match before it became its own iconic Pay Per View.
