Dean Ambrose won the Money in the Bank Ladder Match

Dean Ambrose won the Money in the Bank Ladder Match

LAS VEGAS — The greatest Money in the Bank pay-per-view of all-time featured one of the most action-packed Money in the Bank Ladder Matches since its inception more than a decade ago. As is standard procedure, bedlam ensued and the high-stakes competition reached new heights of lunacy. For some it was too much, but for Dean Ambrose the setting was perfect as he became the new Mr. Money in the Bank.

The moment the opening bell sounded, the battle quickly became a brawl as each competitor selected a target and went on the attack. It didn’t take long for the action to spill to the outside of the ring and match innovator Chris Jericho to immediately go for a ladder. Of course, it was all for naught this early in the contest and the pendulum of momentum swing six ways between Ambrose, Jericho, Cesaro, Kevin Owens, Sami Zayn and Alberto Del Rio.

Appearing in his fourth Money in the Bank Ladder Match, Jericho is no stranger to the physicality needed to compete effectively in the contest. While highfliers like Zayn took to the skies, leaping over the top rope to the outside, Jericho used the ladder as a weapon trying to maintain an edge.

Assaulting his rival Ambrose, Jericho’s momentum was stopped by Del Rio — the only Superstar in this contest to have won the Money in the Bank. Advantages are few and far between in this particular contest, however. Cesaro managed to derail Del Rio and executed multiple uppercuts before being stopped — and thrown face-first into a ladder by Kevin Owens. 

With the battle intensifying and the brutality of the contest taking center stage, Zayn was the first to ascend the ladder before being pulled down by Del Rio. What followed was a thesis statement as to why Del Rio won the match in 2011. The Mexican Superstar’s offense was an incredible sequence of kicks and ring awareness capped off by a Cross Armbreaker on top of the ladder at Cesaro’s expense. 

Del Rio’s incredible tactical display was stopped by a superkick by Owens and once again the match devolved into a chaotic cavalcade of momentum shifts and bodies being pulled off the top of the ladder. Some of the most brutal highlights came in the form of Jericho being Cesaro-swung into a ladder, Ambrose leaping off the top of the ladder and taking down Cesaro and The Lunatic Fringe on the receiving end of a cringe-worthy frogsplash on top of a ladder from Owens. Still, arguably the most jaw-dropping moment came when Zayn tried to break KO in half  with a Michinoku Driver on a ladder. 

Although nothing could prepare the WWE Universe for what came next. With one ladder in the center of the ring, two additional ladders were set up as bridges, and at one point, all six Superstars were vying for the briefcase, battling on top of four ladders. Eventually — arguably inevitably — they all fell except Zayn, who nearly grabbed the coveted contract before he was stopped by Jericho.

The final battle on top of the ladder came down to Owens and Ambrose — a flurry of desperate but impactful blows were landed by each Superstar hoping the other would fall. Owens took the tumble, falling through one of the ladders set up as a bridge earlier in the contest. 

At that moment, the WWE Universe inside Las Vegas’ T-Mobile Arena rose to their feet and watched as Dean Ambrose unlatched the briefcase and secured his opportunity to challenge for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship anytime he wants.
