WWE Money in the Bank has a Royal Rumble quality to it.
The match creates an alternate universe where entire storylines can play out in a single match. Oftentimes, the swerve acts as a catalyst, or a climax, that breathes life into an already exciting concept.
Some of the bigger swerves in modern wrestling have happened during a Money in the Bank match. Sometimes, they have an impact on the match’s outcome; other times, the swerve can be the outcome itself.
These moments are defined by their unpredictability (based on storylines) or a sudden change in alliance.
Though there is a physical toll that comes with falling off ladders, the emotional turbulence usually proves just as rewarding.
When fans are able to be surprised by a well-timed swerve, Money in the Bank becomes a thing of beauty.
