WWE Money in the Bank: Rey Mysterio wins the United States Championship- 2019

Rey Mysterio etched his name into the history books by winning the United States Championship title for the first time in his illustrious career in 2019. The veteran of 19 years defeated the then US Champion Samoa Joe in a one-on-one bout to raise the title up, above & high, to become the 21st Grand Slam Champion.

The match, however, ended with controversy as Samoa Joe’s left shoulder was visibly off the mat while Rey secured a pin. A blunder from the referee helped Mysterio become the 21st Grand Slam Champion.

 

WWE Money in the Bank: Kane cashing-in his contract the same night on Rey Mysterio- 2010

The Big Red Machine Kane was the winner of Smackdown’s Money in the Bank ladder match. He romped past five other competitors to climb the ladder and grab the briefcase. It didn’t take him long to cash in the contract on the then World Heavyweight Champion Rey Mysterio, who just secured a victory in a brutal match against Jack Swagger.

While Rey was gasping for air after his brutal bout, Kane came down to the ring to cash in his contract. As Rey was already out of gas, Kane just lifted the World Champion for a Tombstone Piledriver and succeeded with a pinfall victory.

 

WWE Money in the Bank: Bayley cashing in her contract- 2019

Charlotte Flair won the Smackdown Women’s Championship by defeating Becky Lynch in a hard-fought bout. As she was celebrating her victory, Bayle, who just won the Women’s Money in the Bank ladder match earlier that night, cashed in her contract to become the Smackdown Women’s Champion for the first time to leave Charlotte reeling in agony. It just took an elbow drop from the top turnbuckle for Bayley to secure the Smackdown Women’s Championship.

WWE Money in the Bank: Seth Rollins dethroned Roman Reigns as ‘The Guy’- 2016

Seth Rollins made a remarkable comeback to the company after a prolonged knee injury on May 22, 2016. Upon his return, he targeted his former Shield member Roman Reigns to get a future shot at the WWE World Heavyweight Championship title. 

The match between the two stalwarts got booked for the Money in the Bank PPV, and Rollins tamed the Big Dog Roman Reigns with two pedigrees to win back his WWE World Heavyweight Championship title. However, his title celebration didn’t last for a long time as Dean Ambrose, who won the Men’s Money in the Bank match earlier that night, cashed in his contract on Seth Rollins to get hold of the title. 

 

WWE Money in the Bank: John Cena winning the WWE World Heavyweight Championship ladder match- 2014

Defying all the odds, John Cena became the 15-time World Champion by winning both the World Heavyweight and WWE Championship title in a ladder match. He rose above some culminating names like Alberto Del Rio, Roman Reigns, Cesaro, Kane, Bray Wyatt, Randy Orton, and Sheamus to win the most esteemed titles in the company. 

It was a time when John Cena was going back & forth against the authority figures Triple H and Stephanie McMahon. Cena’s victory was more than trauma for them.
