With Sheamus hobbled, RVD emerged as the most promising candidate to win. Busting out a veritable greatest hits for the Philadelphia faithful, the former WWE Champion launched Christian across the ring with a monkey flip and nailed Bryan with a tumbling Rolling Thunder on top of a ladder. Anyone who questioned whether or not Van Dam still had “it” got their answer when the ECW icon executed his famous Five Star Frog Splash from atop a towering ladder onto Captain Charisma.

Every Superstar got an unpleasant introduction to the steel at one point during the brawl, but it was Bryan who soon broke out in his irrepressible fashion. Blistering Sheamus and RVD with bruising kicks, the fiery Superstar singlehandedly eliminated every man from the squared circle and looked well on his way to capturing his second Money in the Bank contract. And then Curtis Axel arrived.

Catching the WWE Universe — and Bryan — off-guard, the Intercontinental Champion entered the ring unannounced and slaughtered the submission expert with a steel chair. An eerily silent Axel sent Bryan onto the arena floor and stood over his victim with unnecessary arrogance only to get blasted with Go to Sleep by fellow “Paul Heyman Guy” CM Punk. An irate Heyman then hit the ring and chewed out the unconscious Intercontinental Champion while urging Punk towards victory.

It was chaos, but the Chicago Superstar forged ahead, willing his broken body to move up a ladder towards destiny. Punk seemed to be inches away from impossibly winning a record third Money in the Bank Ladder Match before he was assaulted by none other than Paul Heyman.
