The Money in the Bank briefcase has been one of the best innovations in the WWE.

Here is a list of 5 such Money in the Bank cash-ins which left audiences shocked and amazed.
#1 CM Punk cashes in on Edge
This was perhaps a bit of karma for the Rated-R Superstar.
Edge had been involved in a feud with Batista during 2008 which saw The Ultimate Opportunist walking away with the title. Naturally, Edge was happy to rub the title in Batista's face only to have The Animal come down to the ring and deliver a beating to the superstar.
As Edge lay broken and beaten in the ring, CM Punk's music hit and the WWE Universe saw Punk cash in his Money in the Bank briefcase on a beaten down Edge. The entire WWE Universe would then watch as CM Punk pinned Edge in the middle of the ring to win the title.
This was one of the most memorable cash-ins of all time as the unsuspecting victim of the cash in was none other than The Ultimate Opportunist himself. It also marked the moment when CM Punk's rise within the WWE would begin, which makes this cash in even more significant.
