Breaking down every match of the best show in wrestling — ‘Money in the Bank’

“Money in the Bank” is the best show in wrestling.

Of course WrestleMania and SummerSlam are bigger events independently, but neither offer a greater potential reward for up-and-coming WWE Superstars.

For those new to wrestling, this particular pay-per-view presents one of the biggest opportunities in the WWE. In the marquee matches of the night, a briefcase will be suspended above the ring, within it a contract for a title shot that can be “cashed in” at any time. The first person to climb a ladder and unhook the briefcase wins the match, and the contract.

The winner of the match will typically carry the briefcase with them wherever they go, always threatening the champion that their time is coming soon. Since the briefcase can be cashed in at a moment’s notice, “Money in the Bank” winners will often wait until the champion has just finished a brutal match with another wrestler, before running down the ramp, cashing in, hitting a finishing move and pinning the exhausted champ.

Winning the “Money in the Bank” briefcase can launch a career to the next level, and this year for the first time in WWE history, the SmackDown women’s division will be having a “Money in the Bank” match as well. Below you can find a breakdown of every match on Sunday’s card.
