In the proper Money in the Bank ladder match, Seth Rollins won the briefcase and has a chance to become the new WWE World Heavyweight Champion.
This ladder match at the Money in the Bank PPV was the best match of the entire night. The WWE World Heavyweight Title match was poorly booked because too many heavyweights were in the match. Large guys like John Cena, Sheamus, Kane and the rest cannot bump around on ladders. That match was average and not as exciting. Not to mention, Cena winning left a sour taste in everyone’s mouth.
The briefcase match was superior and only six people were in the match. Aside from Rollins, Dean Ambrose, Jack Swagger, Kofi Kingston, Rob Van Dam and Dolph Ziggler put on a heck of an awesome show. Too bad Bad News Barrett got injured, but his absence didn’t hurt the match quality at all.
Every person in this match knew what to do with the ladders and everything clicked. I did not see a single botched move in the entire match. Everyone had a decent amount of time to shine.
The conclusion was slightly controversial though. Ambrose was about to win until Kane came in and helped Rollins. It was a slight damper to the moment, but not as bad as seeing Cena winning later in the night.
Hopefully, Rollins’ victory means the WWE is behind him 100 percent. Many Money in the Bank winners burn bright, but then fade away quickly. Swagger and Ziggler are both examples of previous winners who didn’t go very far. I’m sure Rollins will be better than Damien Sandow though. Sandow is a jobber and never won any gold even though he won the Money in the Bank briefcase just one year ago.
