John Cena won a Money in the Bank ladder match in 2012 to eventually become the WWE Champion.

Since 2005, Money in the Bank ladder matches have been held at either WrestleMania or a MITB-themed pay-per-view. The concept of the match is that a briefcase containing a contract for a world title shot is hanging above the ring, with a field of six to eight superstars competing to climb a ladder and take down the briefcase.

That contract can be cashed in at any time and almost always leads to a new champion. The match itself and the ensuing tension related to the briefcase are exciting, but there are generations of superstars that never participated. Here are 10 from the 1980s and 1990s who would’ve been great MITB competitors.

#10 Ultimate Warrior

The Ultimate Warrior was one of the most exciting superstars for fans in the 1980s and 1990s.

The Ultimate Warrior was seemingly excitement incarnate. His sprints to the ring and rope-shaking were thrilling to fans of all ages, and that intensity led to multiple championship runs despite claims that he wasn’t that skilled in the ring.

That ability to hype up the crowd, though, would’ve made him the perfect choice to compete in and even win a Money in the Bank match. He would’ve helped make the finish and the match itself as big as possible, and the thought of Warrior sprinting down the ramp to cash in is an intriguing one.
