Last Sunday, WWE presented its second annual Money in the Bank pay-per-view, being criticized as one of the greatest and enjoyable pay-per-views in a long while. Although the show was headlined by the anticipated WWE Championship main event between the departing CM Punk and John Cena, the event was also successful in delivering two strong Money in the Bank Ladder Matches.
While watching the event live, I began to question as to who the competitors of this year's Money in the Bank Ladder Matches should be compared to. Meaning, of the six years this type of contest has been been an annual staple, which WWE Superstar that has ever competed apart of it has truly set the bar higher than anyone else?
Since its inception at WrestleMania 21 in 2005, the Money in the Bank Ladder Match has proven to be a launching pad for a variety of Superstars, bringing every wrestler to ever capture the briefcase to an inevitable World Championship. Not only is the the suspense factor high throughout the contest, but given the right participants, it can also prove to be an exciting rush of adrenaline due to the rapid pace of innovative spots and action.
Usually, every match stipulation is known to have its rightful pioneer, similar to how Triple H is known for his solid performances inside the Elimination Chamber or how legends such as Shawn Michaels and Chris Jericho have been remembered as ladder experts. With the variety of Superstars that have competed in the 10 respective Money in the Bank Ladder matches over the years, who should be given the prestigious title of being considered the ultimate Mr. Money in the Bank?
