The 2009 Money in the Bank ladder match fought at WrestleMania XXV.

The Money in the Bank ladder match is a professional wrestling ladder match held by World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) annually at their pay-per-view event, WrestleMania. The match can feature anywhere from six to nine participants from any WWE brand, with the objective being to retrieve a briefcase that is suspended above the ring 20 feet in the air.[1] The briefcase contains a contract that guarantees a match for one of WWE's world titles, which include the WWE Championship and the World Heavyweight Championship. Throughout ECW's time as an active brand, its world title, the ECW Championship, was a guaranteed option.[1][2] The contract is valid for one year up to the next year's WrestleMania, and the briefcase holder—dubbed "Mr. Money in the Bank"—can appear on any program and cash in the contract at the date, place, and time of their choosing.[1][3] The briefcase may also be defended in matches, similar to how championships are defended. All of the briefcase holders have successfully defended the contract except for Mr. Kennedy.[4]

The Money in the Bank ladder match was first contested in 2005 at WrestleMania 21.[1] Since the match's inception, four additional Money in the Bank ladder matches have been held at WrestleMania; the most recent being held at WrestleMania XXV. The first winner of the Money in the Bank ladder match was Edge, who won at WrestleMania 21. He is also the only wrestler to cash in a contract who did not win in the actual ladder match. He defeated Mr. Kennedy, who won the WrestleMania 23 Money in the Bank match, for his briefcase in May 2007, and cashed it in against The Undertaker. The most recent winner, CM Punk, won at both WrestleMania XXIV and XXV, making him the only Money in the Bank participant to win the match on multiple occasions, the second to have earned multiple Money in the Bank contracts, and the first to win the Money in the Bank match in consecutive years. The 2006 winner Rob Van Dam is the only winner to announce the date as to when he will cash in the Money in the Bank contract and to compete in a regular match (as opposed to Edge and CM Punk defeating a defenseless champion immediately after the champion has been weakened by a prior match or attack).

2005

Edge was the first "Mr. Money in the Bank".

In WWE storylines, the concept for the Money in the Bank match was introduced in January 2005 by Chris Jericho. He pitched the idea on an episode of Raw to General Manager Eric Bischoff, who liked it and promptly signed it for WrestleMania 21 naming Jericho, Christian, Chris Benoit, Edge, Kane, and Shelton Benjamin as the participants. This has been the only match that has been exclusive only for one brand.

Edge won the match, and then he carried and used the briefcase as a weapon for the next nine months—including once putting it on the line in a ladder match against Matt Hardy at WWE Homecoming, where the loser had to leave Raw. During his time in possession of the contract, he was known on-screen as "Mr. Money in the Bank". Edge cashed in his contract in January 2006 at New Year's Revolution, where he defeated WWE Champion John Cena in less than two minutes just after Cena had retained his title against five opponents in an Elimination Chamber match.[5]

2006

The Money in the Bank idea was revived by Carlito on a February 2006 episode of Raw. Mr. McMahon approved the suggestion and set up qualifying matches for the match that would take place at WrestleMania 22. It was later announced that the match was to be interpromotional, and SmackDown!'s General Manager Theodore Long also set up qualifying matches to select three members of his roster to compete. In the Raw brand qualifying matches, Rob Van Dam (RVD) defeated Trevor Murdoch, Shelton Benjamin defeated Chavo Guerrero, and Ric Flair defeated Carlito. On SmackDown!, Finlay defeated Bobby Lashley, Matt Hardy defeated Road Warrior Animal, and Lashley won a "last chance battle royal."

Rob Van Dam won the WrestleMania 22 Money in the Bank ladder match after pushing Benjamin and Hardy off a ladder, while he was on another ladder, and retrieving the briefcase. That April, he defended the contract and won the WWE Intercontinental Championship in a "contract vs. title" match against Shelton Benjamin at Backlash. Rob Van Dam announced in May 2006 that he would cash in his contract at One Night Stand against Cena. The match ended with Cena losing after Edge, the #1 contender to the title, interfered on behalf of Van Dam and speared Cena through a table. RVD then performed a Five-Star frog splash and Paul Heyman counted the pinfall.

2007

The third Money in the Bank ladder match was held at WrestleMania 23, and was the first to feature eight participants from Raw, SmackDown!, and ECW. Qualifying matches began on the February 19 episode of Raw.[6] On an edition of Raw the two former Money in the Bank winners, Edge and Rob Van Dam faced off, with Edge coming out on top to earn the first spot in the match.[7]

Mr. Kennedy became "Mr. Money in the Bank" at WrestleMania 23, but would not be able to cash the contract in.

The next night on ECW another cross-brand match took place, with CM Punk defeating Johnny Nitro to qualify.[8] On that week's SmackDown King Booker defeated Kane in a Falls Count Anywhere match following interference from The Great Khali to become the third man to qualify.[9] On the next edition of Raw Jeff Hardy pinned Shelton Benjamin in a match to become the fourth man to qualify.[10] The next night on ECW Mr. Kennedy defeated Sabu in an Extreme Rules match to earn the fifth spot.[11] Two qualifying matches took place on the next SmackDown with Matt Hardy defeating Joey Mercury and Finlay coming out on top in a Triple Threat match against Montel Vontavious Porter and Chris Benoit to qualify.[12] What was to be the final qualifying match took place on Raw between Carlito and Ric Flair. The match was deemed a no contest when The Great Khali interfered and attacked both men.[13] The match was rescheduled for the next week on Raw, with Randy Orton, bribing his way into the match, which was to be an Elimination match. Orton pinned both Flair and Carlito after performing an RKO on each of them.[14] Edge and Randy Orton had recently stopped teaming together, and there was a lot of tension between them. They both attempted to get the other taken out of the Money in the Bank ladder match. Both failed, as Edge ultimately won a "last chance battle royal" after feigning injury to retain his slot.[15] Orton was forced to fight Bobby Lashley on ECW to retain his spot.[16]

Mr. Kennedy won at WrestleMania 23, after ramming CM Punk off the ladder using another ladder.[17] During the next few weeks, he kept declaring that he would cash in the briefcase at WrestleMania XXIV. Kennedy, however, suffered an injury, and on the May 7, 2007 episode of Raw, he lost the Money in the Bank briefcase to Edge. As of WrestleMania XXV Kennedy is the only wrestler to lose the briefcase. The following night at the taping for the May 11, 2007 SmackDown, World Heavyweight Champion The Undertaker and Batista fought to a draw in a steel cage match, after which a returning Mark Henry assaulted Undertaker and left him injured in the ring. As Henry was leaving Edge came to the ring with his briefcase, handed it to referee Jim Korderas, and defeated the Undertaker after a spear to win the World Heavyweight Championship for the first time.

2008

CM Punk is the first to win back-to-back Money in the Bank matches.

The fourth Money in the Bank ladder match took place at WrestleMania XXIV and was intended to be another eight-man match-up, consisting of wrestlers from Raw, SmackDown, and ECW. Qualifying matches began on the February 18 edition of Raw, as both Jeff Hardy and Mr. Kennedy qualified by defeating Snitsky[18] and Val Venis,[18] respectively, in singles matches. On the February 22 edition of SmackDown, Shelton Benjamin qualified by defeating Jimmy Wang Yang in a singles match.[19] Back on Raw, General Manager William Regal placed Chris Jericho in a match against Jeff Hardy with the stipulation that if Jericho won, he would be in the ladder match. Jericho defeated Hardy in that match on February 25.[20] The following week on Raw, however, the two faced off again, this time for Hardy's WWE Intercontinental Championship. Jericho won the match and title, and it was revealed that Hardy was suspended from WWE for 60 days for violating the Wellness Policy.[21] He was subsequently removed from the Money in the Bank ladder match and WrestleMania altogether, making this ladder match the first seven-man Money in the Bank match. Also on this edition of Raw, Carlito defeated Cody Rhodes to qualify.[22] On a SmackDown/ECW live event on March 9, United States Champion Montel Vontavious Porter defeated Jamie Noble to qualify.[23] On the March 11 edition of ECW, CM Punk defeated Big Daddy V to qualify.[24] And finally, on the March 14 edition of SmackDown, John Morrison defeated his tag team partner The Miz to be the last man to qualify.[25]

At WrestleMania, CM Punk won the match after trapping Jericho's leg in a ladder and then climbing the ladder. Punk cashed in his title shot on the June 30 edition of Raw. A farewell speech by Jim Ross was interrupted by then-World Heavyweight Champion Edge who had him removed from the ring and then began to insult the crowd, saying that they will never get to see a world championship being defended on Raw (as at the time both Edge and WWE Champion Triple H were members of the SmackDown brand). When he was about to leave the arena, Batista came out and assaulted Edge in retaliation for Edge cheating in a title match the previous night at Night of Champions. Punk then immediately ran to the ring to cash in his contract, then performed a GTS on Edge to win the World Heavyweight Championship, making it Raw-exclusive in the process.

2009

The fifth annual Money in the Bank ladder match was announced for WrestleMania XXV. Qualifying matches began on the February 23 episode of Raw, in which CM Punk qualified by defeating The Miz and John Morrison in a Triple Threat match.[26] On the March 2 episode of Raw, Kane defeated Rey Mysterio and Mike Knox in a Triple Threat match.[27] On the March 3 episode of ECW on Sci Fi, Mark Henry qualified for the match by defeating Santino Marella.[28] Both MVP and Shelton Benjamin qualified for the match on the March 6 edition of SmackDown, defeating Matt Hardy and Jeff Hardy in respective single matches.[29] On the March 9 edition of Raw, Kofi Kingston qualified by defeating Chris Jericho, after Jericho was distracted by Ric Flair.[30] Christian qualified the following night on ECW on Sci Fi by winning a tri-brand battle royal.[31] Finlay was the final person to qualify for the match when he defeated The Brian Kendrick on the March 13 episode of SmackDown.[32]

At WrestleMania XXV, CM Punk won the match and became the first wrestler to win two Money in the Bank ladder matches, and the only one to win the match for two consecutive years.[33] On the May 1 edition of SmackDown, Punk challenged the World Heavyweight Champion Edge for a non-title match with the intent that if he defeated Edge, he would cash in his title shot right after the match. Later that night, Punk defeated Edge and attempted to cash in. However, before the ringside bell could ring to start the title match, Punk and Edge were both attacked by Umaga and Jeff Hardy respectively. As a consequence, the match never started and Punk retained his contract.[34] Punk again tried to cash in for a World Heavyweight Championship shot against Edge on the May 15 edition of SmackDown but was again stopped by Umaga.[35] After Jeff Hardy defeated Edge in a Ladder match to win the World Heavyweight Championship at Extreme Rules, CM Punk cashed it in defeating Jeff Hardy to win the World Heavyweight Championship for the second time.[36]

2010

On the February 22 episode of Raw, it was announced that the sixth annual Money in the Bank ladder match would take place at WrestleMania XXVI. The first qualifying match was held later that night, where Christian defeated Carlito to qualify.[37] Three more qualifying matches were held on the February 26 episode of SmackDown, with Dolph Ziggler defeating John Morrison and R-Truth in a Triple Threat match, Kane defeating Drew McIntyre, and Shelton Benjamin defeating CM Punk to qualify.[38] The March 1 edition of Raw both saw Jack Swagger and Montel Vontavious Porter qualify by defeating Santino Marella and Zack Ryder respectively.[39] Matt Hardy was the next to qualify for the match when he defeated Drew McIntyre on the March 5 episode of SmackDown[40]. In what was initially declared as the final qualifying match, Evan Bourne defeated William Regal on the March 8 edition of Raw to become the eighth competitor.[41] Due to his favorable association with WWE Chairman Vince McMahon, McIntyre was given a third chance on the March 12 episode of SmackDown to qualify for the match, increasing the number of participants to a record nine. In what would also be made a WWE Intercontinental Championship defence by SmackDown general manager Theodore Long, McIntyre defeated local competitor Aaron Bolo to qualify.[42]

In February 2010, WWE announced that "Money in the Bank" would be the title to their July 18 pay-per-view event at the Sprint Center in Kansas City, Missouri. It is unknown as to how the match concept will be used during the event.[43]
