NXT TAKEOVER: BROOKLYN III PARTICIPANTS’ HISTORY

Since I do the blogs looking at every Pay-Per-View every month, I thought I would do one looking at NXT Takeover: Brooklyn III, now that I have NXT Takeover Section here on the site. To see the entire history of Takeover, visit the Takeover History HERE. And for any feedback or comments about this, comment below or tweet me (@hbkid718). Thanks.

 

Since Tommaso Ciampa, Nikki Cross, Roderick Strong, & Eric Young are not scheduled to compete at NXT Takeover: Brooklyn III, they no longer have the streak of competing at every Takeover event of 2017, joining The Authors of Pain, Asuka, Johnny Gargano, & Bobby Roode.

 

Since no opening match has been announced, here are the facts about it. No matter who is in the opening match, it will be the 1st time since Takeover: Brooklyn II on 8/20/16 that it will not feature either Tye Dillinger or Eric Young. The only wrestlers on the card to compete in an opening match is Bobby Roode, who last competed in an opening match at Takeover: Toronto on November 19, 2016, Andrade Almas, who last competed in an opening match at Takeover: The End on June 8, 2016, & Asuka, who last competed in an opening match at Takeover: London on December 6, 2015. If The Authors of Pain or Johnny Gargano compete in the opening match, they will be the 1st wrestler since Finn Balor at Takeover: Brooklyn on August 22 & Takeover: Respect on October 7, 2015 to go from the main event to the following Takeover’s opening match.

HISTORY OF THE MONEY IN THE BANK LADDER MATCH

This blog will look at the history of the Money In The Bank Ladder Match. If you want the history of the Money In The Bank Pay-Per-View, then read the WWE Money In The Bank Pay-Per-View History in the Pay-Per-View History Section of this Site.

The Money In The Bank Ladder Match was an idea that Chris Jericho came up with and suggested to Raw General Manager Eric Bischoff, in storyline. The match is held between several wrestlers, with the least being 5 & the most being 10. All of the men are in the ring at one time. The object of the match is to use a ladder and retrieve a briefcase hanging above the ring. Inside the briefcase is a Contract for a shot at the WWE or World Heavyweight Championship. The contract is good for up to 1 year and the holder can challenger the Champion of his choosing, until there was 2 Contracts for each respective Title, at the time of his choosing. Most of the challengers cashed in their contracts when the champion was the most vulnerable, after they already had a grueling match or after being attacked by another wrestler. A few wrestlers announced their cash-in ahead of time. For more on the cash-ins, look at the Cash-In Section later on in this blog. Out of the 16 Money In The Bank Winners, only 3 of them were unsuccessful with their cash-ins. Now, here’s a look at each Money In The Bank Match. This will be followed by the list of all of the Money In The Bank Ladder Match Participants and their records, then all of the matches in chronological order, then by gimmicks & titles, and then all of the cash-ins will be listed. Instead of writing Money In The Bank over again, I will use the abbreviation MITB. Also, if a cash-in took place on a Smackdown taping, I will count the date as when the show aired and not when it was filmed.

The 1st MITB Ladder Match took place at WrestleMania 21 in 2005. The first 6 participants were Edge, Shelton Benjamin, Christian, Chris Jericho, Kane, & in his only MITB Match, Chris Benoit. The 1st MITB Match was for a World Championship shot, but since the World Champion at the time, Batista, was a Smackdown Superstar & the WWE Champion at the time John Cena was a Raw Superstar, when it came to the 1st winner, which was Edge, cashing in, he chose to do it on WWE Champion John Cena, since he was the Ultimate Opportunist. Edge held the contract for 280 days, becoming the person to hold the contract the longest, when he defeated John Cena, who just retained his title in a grueling Elimination Chamber Match at New Year’s Revolution on January 8, 2006.

The MITB Match then became a tradition the following year, when it was held again at WrestleMania 22 in 2006. But this time, it wasn’t just for a World Championship shot, but for either the WWE or World Championship, whichever the winner would choose. This event marked the 2nd straight appearance for Shelton Benjamin, who was the only person to be in both the 1st 2 MITB Matches. He also competed in both matches as WWE Intercontinental Champion. Making their debut in this match was Rob Van Dam, Finlay, Matt Hardy, & in their only MITB Matches, Ric Flair & Bobby Lashley. Van Dam became the 2nd person in a row to win the MITB Match in his debut. Van Dam became the 1st person to announce when he was going to cash-in, when he said he would face WWE Champion John Cena at ECW One Night Stand. Van Dam would beat Cena at that event on June 11, 2006, holding the contract for 70 days.

In 2007, we saw the 3rd MITB Match at WrestleMania 23. And once again, the winner could cash-in on either Champion. Shelton Benjamin did not participate this year for the 1st time, but instead Finlay & Matt Hardy returned for their 2nd MITB Match. Edge also returned for his 2nd MITB Match, after not competing in 2006. Making their MITB debuts were Mr. Kennedy, Jeff Hardy, Randy Orton, CM Punk, & in his only MITB Match, King Booker. This match upped the participants from 6 to 8. For the 3rd year in a row, someone making their debut won the match, as Mr. Kennedy won the match. Mr. Kennedy became the 1st person to lose his briefcase before getting a chance to cash it in, as 36 days after winning the match, Edge challenged him to put the briefcase on the line in a match, on Raw, on May 7, 2007. Then, 4 days later on Smackdown, on May 11, 2007, Edge cashed-in on World Champion The Undertaker, who had just defeated Batista in a Steel Cage Match & was attacked by Mark Henry, making the 1st time that the MITB Winner cashed-in on a World Champion. WWE does acknowledge the change in briefcase holder, therefore Edge is the 1st 2-time MITB Contract Winner, though he only won 1 MITB Ladder Match.

The tradition continued in 2008, with the MITB Match being held again at WrestleMania 24. This year, the participants were 1 less, as there were only 7, instead of 8. Matt Hardy was scheduled to be the 8th participant, but was injured by MVP prior to WrestleMania, but he did interfere in the match. This event marked the 3rd MITB Match for Shelton Benjamin, competing for the 1st time since 2006, Chris Jericho’s 2nd MITB Match & 1st since 2005, CM Punk & Mr. Kennedy’s 2nd MITB in a row, & the debuts of MVP, John Morrison, & in his only MITB Match, Carlito. Jericho was the 1st Intercontinental Champion since Benjamin in 2006 to compete in the match, & MVP & John Morrison were the 1st United States & Tag Team Champions, respectively, to participate in the match. CM Punk became the 1st person to win the match in his 2nd MITB Match, instead of in his debut, as the 3 previous winners. Punk held the contract for 92 days until he cashed-in successfully against World Champion Edge on Raw on June 30, 2008, after Edge was attacked by Batista.

In 2009, for the 5th straight year, a MITB Match was held at WrestleMania 25, which returned to having 8 participants. Returning to this match was CM Punk for the 3rd straight year, MVP for the 2nd straight year, also as United States Champion, & Shelton Benjamin, for the 2nd year in a row, but 4th appearance. This match was Finlay’s 3rd MITB Match, but 1st since 2007, Christian & Kane’s 2nd MITB Match, but 1st since 2005, & the MITB debuts for Mark Henry & Kofi Kingston. After 4 years of just plain black briefcases, 2009 was the 1st match to have the WrestleMania 25 logo on the briefcase. CM Punk became the 1st & only person to win back-to-back MITB Matches. Punk would then hold the briefcase for 63 days, before successfully cashing-in for the 2nd year in a row, but this time, against World Champion Jeff Hardy at WWE Extreme Rules on June 7, 2009, after Hardy won the title from Edge in a Ladder Match.

We then saw the final MITB Match to take place at WrestleMania 26, as in 2010, WWE decided to give the MITB Match its own Pay-Per-View in July. But before that, at WrestleMania, we saw the 1st ever 10-Way MITB Match. This event marked the 2nd straight match for Kofi Kingston, the 2nd in row but 3rd match overall for Christian & Kane, the 3rd in row for MVP, the 3rd in row, but 1st since 2007 for Matt Hardy, the 3rd in row, but 5th overall for Shelton Benjamin, & the MITB debuts for Evan Bourne, Drew McIntyre, Jack Swagger, & Dolph Ziggler. McIntyre was the Intercontinental Champion, which was the 1st time that the Intercontinental Champion was in the match since 2008. Swagger became the 1st person since Mr. Kennedy in 2007 to win the MITB Match in his debut. Swagger would hold the record for cashing-in the briefcase in the shortest time, until the record was broken a few months later, when he defeated World Champion Chris Jericho on Smackdown, on April 2, 2010, after Jericho was attacked by Edge, only 5 days later.

In July of 2010, MITB was given its own Pay-Per-View, with 2 MITB being held, with 2 contracts on the line, one for a WWE Championship match & the other for a World Championship Match, therefore making 2010 the only time 3 MITB Matches were held in the same year. This match marked the 1st time that several wrestlers competed in 2 back-to-back MITB Matches in the same year, as Kofi Kingston, in his 3rd MITB Match, Drew McIntyre & Dolph Ziggler, in their 2nd MITB Match, Christian & Kane, in their 4th MITB Match, & Matt Hardy, in his 4th overall MITB, all competed in their 2nd MITB Match in 2010. This match marked the MITB debuts for The Big Show & Cody Rhodes. Kane won the match after his 4th MITB Match, giving him the record for the most MITB Matches before his 1st win. Kane would also make history by being the 1st person to cash-in his briefcase on the same night he won it, as only 48 minutes later, he would defeat World Champion Rey Mysterio, who just defended his title against Jack Swagger.

Also at Money In The Bank in 2010, a shot at the WWE Championship was on the line in a MITB Match. Evan Bourne was the only person in this match to compete in the WrestleMania MITB earlier in the year. This event marked Randy Orton’s 2nd MITB Match & 1st since 2007, Mark Henry’s 2nd year in a row, John Morrison’s 2nd MITB Match & 1st since 2008, Chris Jericho’s 3rd & 1st since 2008, & Edge’s 3rd MITB Match & 1st since 2007. This event marked the MITB debut of The Miz, & Ted DiBiase, in his only MITB Match. The Miz became the 1st & only Champion of any kind, as he was United States Champion, to win a MITB Match & was the 1st US Champion since 2009 to compete in a MITB Match. This was the 2nd straight year that someone won in his debut MITB Match. The Miz would cash-in his contract 127 days later, by defeating WWE Champion Randy Orton on Raw on November 27, 2010, after Orton defeated Wade Barrett & was then attacked by The Nexus.

In 2011, once again, we had 2 MITB Matches at the Money In The Bank Pay-Per-View. First, for the 2nd straight year, the MITB Match for the World Championship Contract opened up the Pay-Per-View. This match marked the 2nd straight MITB Match for Cody Rhodes & Kane’s 5th MITB Match & 4th in a row. This match was the MITB debuts for Wade Barrett, Daniel Bryan, Sin Cara, Sheamus, & in their only MITB Match, Justin Gabriel & Heath Slater, making this match the one to have the most wrestlers making their debuts in a MITB Match. This was the 1st time since 2007 that there was no Intercontinental or United States Champion in a MITB Match. Daniel Bryan won the match, making it the 3rd year in a row someone won his debut MITB Match. Bryan would hold the briefcase for 154 days, before cashing-in on World Champion The Big Show, who just defeated Mark Henry to win the title in a Chairs Match, at WWE TLC on December 18, 2011.

The 2nd MITB match in 2011 for the WWE Championship Briefcase saw Evan Bourne compete in his 3rd MITB Match in a row, The Miz & Jack Swagger compete in their 2nd straight MITB Match, & Kofi Kingston compete in his 4th MITB Match in row. This match would mark the only MITB Matches for Alberto Del Rio, Rey Mysterio, Alex Riley, & R-Truth, making this match the match with the most participants competing in their only MITB Match. Del Rio became the 1st wrestler to win in his only MITB Match & became the 3rd MITB Match winner in a row to win in his debut MITB Match. Del Rio would hold the briefcase for 28 days, before cashing on WWE Champion CM Punk, after he defeated John Cena, at SummerSlam on August 14, 2011.

In 2012, once again we saw 2 MITB Matches at the Money In The Bank Pay-Per-View. The 1st one for the World Championship Briefcase was the 1st time since 2008 that both the Intercontinental & United States Champions were in the same match & the 1st since 2008 that Kofi Kingston did not compete in a MITB Match. This was Dolph Ziggler’s 3rd MITB Match & 1st since 2010, Sin Cara’s 2nd MITB Match in a row, Cody Rhodes’ 3rd MITB Match in a row, & Christian’s 5th MITB Match & 1st since 2010. This was the MITB debuts of Damien Sandow, & in their only MITB Match, Tyson Kidd, Santino Marella, & Tensai. This would be the last time that 8 wrestlers would compete in a MITB Match. Dolph Ziggler became the 1st person to win a MITB Match after 3 appearances. Ziggler would hold the briefcase for 267 days, when he cashed in on World Champion Alberto Del Rio, who just defeated Jack Swagger & Zeb Colter in a Handicap Match, on Raw on April 8, 2013, the night after WrestleMania 29, becoming the person to hold the briefcase the longest, until 2015.

The 2nd MITB Match at Money In The Bank 2012 was the main event, becoming the 1st time that a MITB Match opened & main evented a Money In The Bank Pay-Per-View. This match was the only time that there was only 5 participants, making it the smallest MITB Match in History. This match was Miz’s 3rd straight MITB Match in a row, Kane’s 6th MITB Match & 5th in a row, Chris Jericho’s 4th MITB Match & 1st since 2010, & The Big Show’s 2nd MITB Match & 1st since 2010. This match marked John Cena’s only MITB Match, making him the 2nd wrestler to win a MITB Match in his only MITB appearance & the 4th year in row someone won in their debut MITB Match. This event marked the 1st time that only 1 wrestler made their debut in a MITB Match. Cena would be the 1st person & to date, the last person, since Rob Van Dam to announce when he was going to cash-in his Contract, as he announced on Raw the night after Money In The Bank that he would cash-in a week later on Raw’s 1000th Episode against WWE Champion CM Punk, 8 days later on July 23, 2012. In that match, due to The Big Show’s interference, John Cena won the match, but not the title, becoming the 1st MITB Winner to not become WWE or World Champion after cashing-in the MITB briefcase.

In 2013, the MITB Match opened up the Money In The Bank Pay-Per-View, once again. This event marked the 1st time that 2 Tag Teams competed in the same MITB Match, as we saw The Real Americans of Cesaro & Jack Swagger & Team Rhodes Scholars of Cody Rhodes & Damien Sandow. This marked Rhodes’ 4th MITB Match in a row, Sandow’s 2nd MITB Match in a row, Swagger’s 3rd MITB Match, & 1st since 2011, & Wade Barrett’s 2nd MITB & 1st since 2011. This was the MITB debuts for Dean Ambrose & Cesaro & to date only MITB Matches for Fandango. Damien Sandow became the 2nd person to win a MITB Match in his 2nd MITB Match after CM Punk in 2008. Sandow would attempt to cash-in the briefcase 106 days later, on World Champion John Cena on Raw on October 28, 2013, but became the 1st person to lose a cash-in match by pinfall.

The 2nd MITB Match at Money In The Bank 2013 took place in the main event, making it the 2nd & final year, that a MITB Match opened and main evented a Money In The Bank Pay-Per-View. This match was billed as an All-Star Match and featured no one making their MITB debuts or competing in back-to-back MITB Matches. This event marked the return of 6 participants for the 1st time since 2006. But it was scheduled to be a 7-Way Match, as Kane was injured prior to the match by The Wyatt Family, making it the 1st time that Kane did not compete in the MITB Match since 2008. This was Daniel Bryan’s 2nd MITB Match & 1st since 2011, Rob Van Dam’s 2nd MITB Match & 1st since 2006, giving him the longest gap between appearances in MITB Matches, Sheamus’ 2nd MITB Match & 1st since 2011, Randy Orton’s 3rd MITB Match & 1st since 2010, CM Punk’s 4th MITB Match & 1st since 2009, & Christian’s 6th MITB Match & 1st since 2012. Randy Orton became the 2nd person to win the MITB Match in his 3rd appearance. Orton would hold the case for 35 days, cashing-in on WWE Champion Daniel Bryan, who defeated John Cena to win the title at SummerSlam on August 18, 2013.

In 2014, for the 1st time since 2009, there was only 1 MITB Match for a World Championship Match Contract at Money In The Bank 2014, therefore it was the 1st time that only 1 Championship can be cashed-in on, since there was only 1 World Heavyweight Championship in WWE. There was a 2nd Ladder Match at this event, but it was for the Vacant World Heavyweight Championship and not a Contract, therefore it will not be counted in the Money In The Bank Ladder Match History. This was the 1st time that the MITB Match was not the opener or main event of the Money In The Bank Pay-Per-View, since the Pay-Per-View started in 2010. This was the 1st time that a Gold Briefcase was used instead of a black, red, or blue briefcase & was the 1st time that the Money In The Bank Pay-Per-View aired on June, instead of July. This match was Dean Ambrose’s 2nd MITB Match in a row, Rob Van Dam’s 2nd MITB Match in a row & 3rd overall, Dolph Ziggler’s 4th MITB Match & 1st since 2012, Jack Swagger’s 4th MITB Match & 2nd in a row, & Kofi Kingston’s 5th MITB Match & 1st since 2011. This was the MITB debut of Seth Rollins, making this the 1st match since 2012 that only 1 wrestler made his MITB debut & the 1st one since 2012 & John Cena to win in his only MITB Match. Rollins made history when he cashed in his briefcase 273 days later at WrestleMania 31 on March 29, 2015. It was the 1st time that a cash-in happened in the middle of a match, instead of after, as Seth Rollins turned the World Heavyweight Championship Match between Champion Brock Lesnar & Roman Reigns into a Triple Threat Match, by pinning Reigns, which was the 1st time that a Champion was not pinned by a MITB Contract holder. He also became the 1st person to cash-in a MITB Contract at WrestleMania, the Pay-Per-View where the MITB Match debuted.

In 2015, for the 2nd year in a row, there was only 1 MITB Match. Sheamus competed in his 3rd MITB Match, & 1st since 2013, Randy Orton competed in his 4th MITB Match, & 1st since 2013, Dolph Ziggler competed in his 5th MITB Match, & 2nd in a row, Kofi Kingston competed in his 6th MITB Match, & 2nd in a row, & Kane competed in his 7th MITB Match & 1st since 2012. This was the MITB debut of Neville & Roman Reigns becoming the 49th & 50th Participants in MITB History & making it the 1st time since 2009 that only 2 people made their MITB debut. It was the 1st 7-Way Match since 2013. Sheamus became the 3rd person to win the MITB Contract in his 3rd match. Sheamus would hold the briefcase for 161 Days, cashing in on WWE World Heavyweight Champion Roman Reigns who just defeated Dean Ambrose to win the vacant title, at WWE Survivor Series on November 22, 2015.

In 2016, for the 3rd year in a row, there was only 1 MITB Match. Chris Jericho competed in his 5th MITB Match, & 1st since 2012, Dean Ambrose competed in his 3rd MITB Match, & 1st since 2014, Cesaro competed in his 2nd MITB Match, & 1st since 2013, Alberto Del Rio competed in his 2nd MITB Match & 1st since 2011. This was the MITB debuts of Kevin Owens & Sami Zayn, making it the 2nd year in a row only 2 people made their MITB debuts. This was the 1st time in MITB History that no one competed in back-to-back MITB Matches. It was the 5th 6-Way MITB Match & 1st since 2014. Dean Ambrose became the 4th person & 2nd in a row to win the MITB Contract in his 3rd match. Ambrose would only hold the briefcase for 57 minutes, cashing in on new World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins, who just defeated Roman Reigns to win the title, later that night at Money In The Bank on June 19, 2016. This was the 1st time since 2010 that someone cashed in the contract on the same night.

In 2017, for the 1st time since 2013, there was 2 MITB Matches at a Money In The Bank PPV. And for the 1st time in WWE History, one of them featured women & was the 1st ever MITB Match for a Contract for a Women’s Championship. It was the MITB debuts for Carmella, Charlotte Flair, Becky Lynch, Natalya, & Tamina Snuka. It was the most wrestlers to make their MITB debut since 6 wrestlers competed in their 1st MITB Match in 2006. Charlotte Flair also became the 1st child of a former MITB competitor. Natalya became the 1st spouse of a MITB Match to compete in a MITB Match. It was the 2nd 5-Way Match in MITB History & 1st since 2012. Even though James Ellsworth grabbed the briefcase, Carmella was the official winner, therefore she was the 1st wrestler since Seth Rollins in 2014 to win a MITB Match in their debut match. It opened up the PPV, making it the 6th MITB Match to be a opener & the 1st since 2015. The 2nd MITB Match main evented the PPV for the 1st time since 2013. 2013 was the last time that a MITB Match opened & main evented a MITB PPV. Dolph Ziggler competed in his 6th MITB Match & 1st since 2015. Kevin Owens & Sami Zayn competed in their 2nd MITB Match in a row, which was the 1st time since 2015 that someone competed in back-to-back MITB Matches. Baron Corbin, Shinsuke Nakamura, & AJ Styles competed in their 1st MITB Matches, which was the 1st time since 2013 that 3 wrestlers competed in their 1st MITB Match. Kevin Owens was the 1st defending United States Champion to be in the MITB Match since The Miz in 2010. It was the 6th 6-Way MITB Match & 2nd year in a row. It was the 5th MITB Match for a WWE Championship Contract & 1st since 2013. Baron Corbin was the 11th wrestler to win the MITB Match in his debut match & therefore, it was the 1st time since 2011 that 2 wrestlers won their debut MITB matches on the same night. On the June 20, 2017 episode of Smackdown, it was ruled that because James Ellsworth climbed the ladder and dropped it to Carmella, her win was voided and another Money In The Bank Match was ordered for Smackdown on June 27, 2017 with the same 5 women, Carmella, Charlotte Flair, Becky Lynch, Natalya, & Tamina Snuka. Therefore, it was the 1st ever Money In The Bank Ladder Match on Smackdown. It was the 1st time since 2013 that there were 3 Money In The Bank Ladder Matches in the same year & the 1st time since 2010 that multiple people competed in 2 Money In The Bank Matches in the same year. As of press time, Carmella has not cashed in her MITB Contract. But, on Smackdown, on August 15, 2017, Corbin cashed in his MITB Contract after 58 days after interfering in a Non-Title Match between John Cena & WWE Champion Jinder Mahal, costing Mahal the match by Disqualification. But due to a distraction by Cena, Mahal rolled up Corbin up, therefore making Corbin the 3rd person to unsuccessfully cash in a MITB Contract.

 

Now that you know the history of the MITB Matches, here are some facts that aren’t listed above. There have been 60 participants in 20 MITB Matches, with 19 Winners, since CM Punk & Carmella are the only people to win 2 MITB Matches. 25 wrestlers have only competed in 1 MITB Match. Out of those 30 wrestlers, Baron Corbin, John Cena, Alberto Del Rio, & Seth Rollins have won their only MITB Match. Besides them, Daniel Bryan, Edge, Mr. Kennedy, The Miz, Rob Van Dam, & Jack Swagger won their debut MITB Matches, while the other winners won after multiple MITB Matches. 19 wrestlers have competed in 2 MITB Matches. 8 wrestlers have competed in 3 MITB Matches. 5 wrestlers have competed in 4 MITB Matches. Shelton Benjamin & Chris Jericho are the only wrestler to compete in 5 MITB Matches. Christian, Kofi Kingston, & Dolph Ziggler are the only wrestlers to compete in 6 MITB Matches. Kane is the only wrestler to compete in 7 MITB Matches. The best record for all MITB Participants goes to CM Punk, with a record of 2-2-0 & the tie for the worst record without a win goes to Christian & Kofi Kingston with a record of 0-6-0. Kane & Cody Rhodes are the only wrestlers to compete 4 years in a row in a MITB Match. There has been 3 5-Way Matches, 6 6-Way Matches, 3 7-Way Matches, 7 8-Way Matches, & 1 10-Way Match. 6 MITB Matches had not specific title opportunity at stake, meaning the winner can challenge for either the WWE or World Title. 5 MITB Matches were for a WWE Championship Contract. 7 MITB Matches were for a World Heavyweight Championship Contract. 2 MITB Matches were for a Smackdown Women’s Championship Contract. Cash-Ins have happened on Raw 6 times, on Smackdown 3 times, at SummerSlam & Money In The Bank twice, & one time each at New Year’s Revolution, One Night Stand, Extreme Rules, WrestleMania, Survivor Series, & TLC. John Cena has had the most cash-ins against him, with Cena losing the title twice, but defeating Damien Sandow. CM Punk has had 2 cash-ins against him, with 2 losses, but only losing the title once, as he lost to John Cena by Disqualification. Jinder Mahal is the 2nd defending Champion to beat the MITB Contract holder, after John Cena. All of the other champions have only lost once. Edge, CM Punk, Daniel Bryan, Alberto Del Rio, Randy Orton, & John Cena are the only MITB Winners to also lose a Title Match. 2010 was the year with the most cash-ins, with 3, while 2006, 2011, 2013 & 2015 have had 2, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2012, 2016, & 2017 have had 1, & 2014 had no cash-ins. The longest time someone held the briefcase for was Edge, who held it for 280 Days, while the shortest was Kane, who cashed-in the same night he won it, holding it for only 48 minutes. Also, every cash-in besides Van Dam, John Cena, & Damien Sandow involved interference of some kind, either the Champion wrestled a grueling match prior to the cash-in or the Champion was laid out by someone before the MITB winner came out.

2017 WWE MONEY IN THE BANK PPV PARTICIPANTS’ HISTORY

As I do every month, it’s time to look at this weekend’s Money In The Bank Pay-Per-View and see the history of all of the participants. To see the entire 7 year history of Money In The Bank, visit the Money In The Bank History HERE. This will only look at the history of the Money In The Bank Pay-Per-View. To see the history of the actual Money In The Bank Match, go HERE. And for any feedback or comments about this, comment below or tweet me (@hbkid718). Thanks.

 

Since they are not scheduled to compete, this will be the 1st MITB PPV that John Cena or Sheamus will not be in action, therefore no one has competed at every MITB PPV. This will be the 1st MITB PPV since 2014 to have 2 Women’s Matches on it.

 

Since the Main Event has not been announced, here are the facts about it. If the WWE Championship is the main event, then it will be the 6th time that it will be defended in the main event & 4th year in a row, Randy Orton’s 3rd MITB PPV main event & 1st since 2014. If a Money In the Bank Ladder Match is the main event, then it will be the 3rd time that it will be the main event & 1st since 2013, but 1st Ladder Match to main event a MITB PPV since 2015. It will be everyone’s MITB PPV main event debut. If any other match is the main event, then it will be the 1st time for them.

 

Since the Opening Match has not been announced, here are the facts about it. If either Money In The Bank Ladder Match opens, it will be the 6th Money In The Bank Ladder Match to open up a MITB PPV, but 1st since 2015. It will be Dolph Ziggler’s 1st opener since 2015 & 4th overall. It will be everyone else’s 1st opener. If the Tag Team Title Match opens up MITB, it will be the 2nd year in a row that the Tag Team Titles opened up a MITB PPV & 3rd time overall. It will be Big E’s 2nd year in a row in the opener, Kofi Kingston’s 3rd year in a row in the opener, & The Uso’s 2nd opener, & 1st since 2014. If anyone else opens the show, it will be their 1st time.

 

WWE CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH: RANDY ORTON VS WWE CHAMPION JINDER MAHAL

This will be the 14th WWE or World Heavyweight Championship Match at a MITB PPV & 8th year in a row. This will be the 1st time since 2015 that only 1 WWE or World Title Match will be held at a MITB PPV. The WWE or World Title has changed hands 6 times at the MITB PPV, with the last title change taking place in 2016, when the title changed hands twice. This will be the 1st time since 2014 that Seth Rollins is not competing in a WWE Championship Match at a MITB PPV. This will be Randy Orton’s 6th MITB PPV & 1st since 2015, his 3rd WWE or World Championship Match at a MITB & 1st since 2014, & his 1st non-Ladder Match since 2011. This will be Jinder Mahal’s MITB PPV debut & 1st WWE Championship Match.

2017 WWE PAYBACK PARTICIPANTS’ HISTORY

As I do every month, it’s time to look at this weekend’s Payback Pay-Per-View and see the history of all of the participants. To see the entire 4 year history of Payback, visit the Payback History HERE. And for any feedback or comments about this, comment below or tweet me (@hbkid718). Thanks.

 

Since no Main Event has been announced, here are the facts. Since there are no WWE or World Title Matches, it will be the 1st time since 2014 that the Main Event will not feature a WWE or World Title Match. If Reigns VS Strowman is the Main Event, it will be Reigns’ 4th straight Payback Main Event. The only other wrestlers to compete in a Payback Main Event are Seth Rollins, Dean Ambrose, & Randy Orton, who all last competed in the Main Event in 2015. Everyone else will be making their Payback Main Event debuts.

 

Since no opening matches have been announced, here are the facts. The only wrestlers on the card to compete in an opening match are Sheamus in 2015 & Cesaro in 2014. Everyone else will be making their Payback opening match debuts.

 

At the end of this column, I added a match that I think might be added to WWE Payback, due to the announced MizTV segment for the Kickoff Show. I added it just in case it gets added to the show at the last minute. That way if it does happen, the facts will be ready to go. If it doesn’t occur, then I apologize.

HISTORY OF THE WWE DRAFT & BRAND EXTENSION

Since there was the Superstar Shake-Up, this blog was updated with the results, though it wasn’t an official draft. I thought I would do a blog looking at the history of the Draft & Brand Split. I will talk about each year they did the draft and who was drafted to what brand. I will not talk about what happened after the draft, and if people were traded or if they lost a title. This is strictly about the actual draft. Then, I will list everyone’s draft history, & at the end I will list how many people were drafted in total and what wrestlers were drafted the most in the 10 years that the WWE had the draft, as well as other facts.

 

I hope you enjoy this and for all feedback, leave comments below or tweet me (@Hbkid718). Thanks.

 

2002

In 2002, with the purchase of WCW & ECW in 2001, there was an abundance of talent in WWF. So they decided to split the roster into 2 separate brands, Raw & Smackdown. Ric Flair was in charge of Raw, while Vince McMahon was in charge of Smackdown. On March 25, 2002 on Raw, the 1st ever WWF Draft was held. Picks #1 -20 were held on Raw, while #21-57 were held on WWF.com, via a random lottery. Vince McMahon won a coin toss to earn the 1st draft pick. Any Champion drafted would bring that belt to his brand, while the WWF Undisputed Champion Triple H & WWF Women’s Champion Jazz was not part of a brand & competed on both shows. 62 wrestlers were drafted in 57 picks, with 28 picks for Raw & 29 picks for SD.

2004

There was no draft in 2003, but with WrestleMania 20 having the tag line “Where It All Begins Again”, the now-WWE decided to bring the Draft back. This time instead of the General Managers, now Eric Bischoff for Raw & Paul Heyman for Smackdown, picking their own picks, it was determined by a lottery, by them pulling names out of a tumbler. The Draft was held on March 22, with the 1st 12 picks, while the remaining picks were done through trades, which took place until the next day. No Champions were drafted and remained with their original brands. 20 wrestlers were drafted in 12 picks & 2 trades, with 7 for Raw & 7 for SD.

2006

There was no Draft in 2006, but since ECW was added, ECW GM Paul Heyman was allowed to draft 4 wrestlers to join his brand. He drafted Rob Van Dam & The Big Show from Raw & Kurt Angle & Tazz from Smackdown.

 

2007

In 2007, there was the 1st ever Tri-Branded Draft, with Raw, Smackdown, & ECW. It was held on Raw on June 11, 2007. The 1st 10 picks were determined by 9 matches between the brands, so no GMs had involvement in deciding their brand’s picks. Whoever won the match received a pick for that brand, which was determined at random, with 2 picks on the line in the final match. I will not list the matches here, only the draft picks. A Supplemental Draft was held on June 17, on WWE.com for the remaining picks. 27 wrestlers were drafted in 23 picks, with 9 picks for Raw, 8 for SD, & 5 for ECW.

2010

In 2010, ECW was canceled; therefore this was the 1st Draft to feature only Raw & Smackdown since 2005. It was held on Raw on April 26. Like the previous Drafts, this was also determined by matches, as 6 matches were held for 8 picks, with 1 match determining 3 picks. The Supplemental Draft was held on April 27 for the remaining picks. This was the 1st Draft since 2007 where Champions did not switch brands, since the Unified Tag Team Champions defended on both brands. 21 wrestlers were drafted in 19 picks, with 9 for Raw & 10 for SD.

2016

In 2016, Vince McMahon decided to bring back the draft to change things up. He appointed Stephanie McMahon as the Commissioner of Raw & Shane McMahon as the Commissioner of Smackdown, who then appointed Mick Foley & Daniel Bryan as their respective General Managers. For the 1st time, tag teams were allowed to be picked together, unless a GM wants to separate them, and managers were not drafted separately from their wrestler. Also, 6 wrestlers were drafted from NXT. Since Raw is a 3 hour show & Smackdown is a 2 hour show, for every pick Smackdown got, Raw got 2. The Draft was held on Smackdown on July 16, where the 1st 30 picks were announced by each brand. The remaining picks were announced on a special WWE Draft Center Live on the WWE Network. Every one was drafted except for Heath Slater, as well as Nikki Bella, Emma, Luke Harper, & Tamina, who were injured, and Triple H, The Rock, & The Undertaker, who are inactive talents. 69 wrestlers were drafted in 59 picks, with 33 for Raw & 26 for SD.

2017

On April 3, 2017, the night after WrestleMania 33, Vince McMahon announced that there would be a Superstar Shake-Up to change around the Raw & Smackdown Rosters. It wasn’t an official draft. Also, there was no showing of General Managers Kurt Angle of Raw & Daniel Bryan of Smackdown showing them picking their talents. The wrestlers either appeared on their new show or a video package was shown of the wrestler that was being moved. And because of that, the list below will be in order by show and their appearance on that show, instead of in a particular order of how they were picked. Both the United States & Intercontinental Champions were picked and it was announced that whoever wins the United States Title Match at WWE Payback between Champion Kevin Owens & Chris Jericho will move to Smackdown, while the loser of the match will be on Raw. 24 wrestlers & 2 announcers were moved in 20 picks, with 12 for Raw & 14 for SD. Shane McMahon announced Tamina as the newest Smackdown wrestler, though she was not a Raw talent, since she was injured during the original draft & was not chosen for either brand.
