Money in the Bank rules

Climb the ladder, and grab the briefcase. That’s it. It’s a straightforward ladder match where the objective is to secure the briefcase hanging above the ring.

Inside of the briefcase is a contract that guarantees the winner a title match at any time of their choosing for the next year. We’ve seen a wide variety of MITB winners “cash in” at opportune time. Some have waited several months to do it while others have cashed in on the same night they won the briefcase.
