While the hype around this year’s event was much less than it was when CM Punk was holding the WWE hostage in 2011, the Money in the Bank pay-per-view is always one of the best shows of the year.
There is just something about ladder matches that gets the WWE Universe excited.
As great as the event was, there were some very clear winners and a few even clearer losers coming out of the event. With RAW’s 1,000th episode July 23 and SummerSlam in August, it became obvious that the WWE was positioning itself for those events.
Anytime Vince McMahon and the shot-callers in the WWE get into this holding pattern style of booking, the biggest losers are always the fans. Thank goodness we had the ladders to hold us over.
All of the following stars were either the biggest winners of the night or the losers that walked away with nothing.
