Watch WWE: Money in the Bank
- 2016 Seasons
WWE: Money in the Bank is an annual World Wrestling Entertainment offering that is usually held in July. There have been three WWE: Money in the Bank events that have aired to date. The Money in the Bank was initially a specialty match that took place each year at WrestleMania. The premise of the match was that anywhere between six to eight WWE superstars would enter the match as individuals. There is a briefcase that is tied and held above the ring. The briefcase contains a contract that guarantees the winner of the match a World Championship title match at a time of their choosing. To win the match, the wrestler would need to climb a ladder and take the briefcase off of its latch. The match was wildly popular and was spun off to its own annual event. Each edition has two different Money in the Bank matches. One is for the WWE World Championship title match contract, and the other is for the World Heavyweight Championship title match contract. The 2012 edition of WWE: Money in the Bank included both Money in the Bank matches and five other matches. The show emanated from Phoenix, Arizona. The card for that event featured several exciting matches. World Heavyweight Champion Shemus defended his title against Alberto Del Rio. Primo and Epico faced off against The Prime Time Players, Titus O'Neil and Darren Young, in a tag team match. Ryback fought both Tyler Reks and Curt Hawkins. There was a tag team match featuring six lovely WWE Divas as Layla, Kaitlyn and Tamina battled Beth Phoenix, Natalya Neidhart and Eve Torres. Daniel Bryan challenged WWE champion, CM Punk in a no disqualification match for the title. The six participants in the first Money in the Bank match were Santino Marella, Tensai, Sin Cara, Damien Sandow, Dolph Ziggler, Tyson Kidd, Christian and Cody Rhodes. The second Money in the Bank Match featured Big Show, The Miz, John Cena, Kane and Chris Jericho.
