10 stats you can take to the bank

7 (Number of first World Title wins off Money in the Bank cash-ins)

Not convinced that winning a Money in the Bank Ladder Match is key to claiming WWE's ultimate prize? Tell that to the seven Superstars who won their first World Championship after cashing in their coveted contracts. A diverse list that spans Superstars past and present, the esteemed list of Superstars includes Edge (WWE Championship, 2006); Rob Van Dam (WWE Championship, 2006); CM Punk (World Heavyweight Championship, 2008); Jack Swagger (World Heavyweight Championship, 2010); The Miz (WWE Championship, 2010); Alberto Del Rio (WWE Championship, 2011) and Daniel Bryan (World Heavyweight Championship, 2011).

Rob Van Dam, by the way, was the first Superstar to ever make good on his cash-in promise, telling John Cena exactly where and when he would cash in. Although the Cenation leader followed suit after winning a contract in 2012 and announced his intentions of cashing in against WWE Champion CM Punk at Raw 1,000, unlike RVD, he was unable to walk away from his cash-in with championship gold.
