Match in progress. Money in the Bank 2024, Money in the Bank, WWE Money in the Bank


Match in progress.

It was clear Chelsea Green was the crowd favorite after the pop on her entrance and Samantha Irvin’s signature announcement. Green also got the match started with a laugh by trying to jump to get the briefcase once the match started.

Each star got their own chance to shine, like when Zoey Stark utilized the ladder in several ways to punish Lyra Valkyria and Tiffany Stratton launched herself off the top turnbuckle and took out other stars. It took time for someone to climb up and make an attempt to grab the briefcase, and once Valkyria was the first to do so, all stars then duked to get on the ladder. After back-and-forth blows using the ladder, Naomi was standing alone ready to grab the briefcase, only for Green to emerge to stop the threat and hit her opponent's face off the ladder. Last year's winner Iyo Sky and Stark met at the top of the ladder and Sky delivered a wicked piledriver onto the perpendicular ladder.

Green was open and just when she grabbed the briefcase, Stratton came out and not only shook the ladder, knocked Green off and into the tables out of the ring in a hard-hitting spot. Stratton was left alone, and she grabbed the briefcase to become Ms. Money in the Bank.

Analysis: What a spectacular match this was. The women laid it all out on the line and deserve major props for all the wild bumps they had. The creativity in the match was among the best in recent Money in the Bank match memory and raise the bar for how good it can be.

Stratton had a quick rise on the main roster, but it looked like it wasn't going to amount to much and she would be a flash in the pan. Instead, Money in the Bank is on "Tiffy Time," and it's a great move for WWE to put another women's star in the conversation as one of the faces of the brand. There is a reason why she's already over with the crowd; she can talk on the microphone and she backs it up in the ring. The Women's Money in the Bank winner has always ended up as a champion, and it looked like Stratton is not far from having gold around her waist.

Drew McIntyre's threat of cashing in his Money in the Bank contract on Saturday loomed large in the championship match. Both stars had a sense of urgency to get the match over and get out of the arena as quickly as possible.

With Damian Priest and Seth Rollins on high alert, they each tried to land big strike after big strike in a match that was never slow. Rollins and Priest traded powerbombs, then had a sequence of kicks to each other. Rollins landed his patented curb-stomp and went for the pin but Priest kicked out. The champion went for his own knockout move with his razor-edge, ending in the same result: Rollins getting out of the pin. There was a confusing moment when Rollins hit the falcon's arrow and went for the pin on Priest, and even though it didn't look like Priest kicked out, the referee didn't count to three.

McIntyre then came out and cashed his Money in the Bank contract, making it a triple-threat match. McIntyre went for the claymore kick on Rollins to take the title, but Priest came out to clothesline him.

Then just like at Clash at the Castle, CM Punk emerged and unleashed a relentless assault on McIntyre, hitting him with a chair and choking him out with a cable. Punk took the championship title and knocked McIntyre out with it. Priest delivered a choke-slam to McIntyre to retain his title.

Punk has cost McIntyre again by wasting his contract, and he also cost Rollins from chasing the title as long as Priest is champion.

Analysis: The CM Punk-Drew McIntyre rivalry continues to deliver. Fans knew neither Priest nor Rollins was going to win this match without the 2024 Men's Money in the Bank winner getting in the fold. Punk's interference was his most ruthless assault on McIntyre yet, surely sending a message he is close to officially competing in the ring. The match didn't really set the next steps for Priest and his championship, and the botched pin spoiled it, but Punk and McIntyre are one step closer to finally getting a match and putting on a banger in the ring.

There is something Money in the Bank and John Cena.

Trish Stratus announced a surprise guest on Saturday: 16-time WWE Champion Cena. His music hit and the crowd erupted, making another entrance like he did at Money in the Bank 2021.

Cena then revealed he will retire from WWE in 2025, and it appears WrestleMania 41 will be his last match.

Sami Zayn had the home country advantage, but Bron Breakker wasn't fazed by it, going quickly after the champion. However, Zayn isn't just some squash opponent; he has finesse and is one of the smartest wrestlers in the company, and he showed he wouldn't go down easy, taking some shots that seemed to surprise the challenger.

There were spots where Breakker would deliver one of his signature hard-hitting counters to get on offense, including a Franken-steiner to Zayn off the top rope. Breakker had words for Zayn after he kicked out and they went outside of the ring. Breakker tried to do his top-speed spear around the ring, only for Zayn to jump over. Breakker didn't run into the steel steps, so he had time to recover, get onto the mat and deliver a flying clothesline to Zayn off the announcer's table.

Breakker had the opening and went for the final blow. Zayn got out of the way with clipped him. With the challenger hanging off the turnbuckle, Zayn delivered a helluva kick, knocking Breakker out and getting the pin to retain the title.

Analysis: Anyone could have made the case for either star to win, but it made sense for Breakker to get his first big push now. He has unlimited potential and a win would have launched his career to new heights. Zayn is the ideal champion that can compete with anybody on the roster and isn't someone that'll go down easily.

A major theme in the match was while Breakker was able to showcase his power and speed, he learned his opponents aren't just going to be out in seconds. It takes skill to win, and it'll be something for him to work on as he works his way up to the top. Don't be surprised if this isn't the only meeting between the two.

The chaos started as soon as the bell rang, and Drew McIntyre emerged as the first person to attempt to grab the briefcase, only for the quick ending to be spoiled by Chad Gable and Andrade. "El Idolo" then did an impressive Spanish fly to Hayes and onto the ladder. The crowd was clearly loving the energy.

LA Knight and Jey Uso were the fan favorites and they traded barbs at the top of the ladder, with the crowd chanting "yeet" and "yeah" with every blow. Hayes disrupted the moment and had a chance to grab the ladder, only to again be taken out by Andrade. Andrade then delivered an insane sunset flip power bomb to Hayes onto the ladder. Moments later, Gable launched LA Knight out of the ring and to a ladder out of the ring.

Gable went to get the briefcase, but Uso moved the ladder, leaving Gable hanging off the briefcase. He couldn't grab it and fell face first onto the mat. Uso had a prime chance to win, only for McIntyre to hit Uso with a ladder. It knocked him off, and McIntyre was all by himself. He climbed up the ladder and grabbed the briefcase to secure his championship opportunity.

Analysis: There were plenty of spots in this one to create some stunning moves that a Money in the Bank match is expected to have. It was easy to tell there were only three contenders that really had a chance to win, and while it was expected, McIntyre's victory makes sense given he has the best story going on right now since WrestleMania. The win adds intrigue to the World Heavyweight Championship match since he said he will cash in later on in the night? Will he do so? Or does CM Punk have another surprise up his sleeve?

WWE Hall of Famer and Toronto native Trish Stratus is the host of Money in the Bank, and she got the night started by welcoming the crowd to Scotiabank Arena. Ring announcer Samantha Irvin then sang the U.S. national anthem and artist Rylan James sang the Canada national anthem.

Money in the Bank 2024 will be July 6 at 7 p.m. ET.

Money in the Bank will take place in Toronto, Canada. It will be held in Scotiabank Arena.

The event can be streamed on Peacock, but you must have their premium or premium-plus subscription to watch. Internationally, it will be available on WWE Network.

Matches not in order

Winning the Money in the Bank match means a title bout against any champion anywhere, at any time, and it is often a success.

On the men's side, 19 of 24 (79%) briefcase holders went on to claim the title they cash in on. The women's side has seen perfection with all seven holders becoming champions.

The Money in the Bank match was introduced at WrestleMania 21 in 2005 and it was annually held at WWE’s premier event until it became its own premium live event in 2010. For a few years, there were two men’s Money in the Bank matches until there became a sole men’s match.

Here is the history of winners:

The Women’s Money in the Bank match was added in 2017 and has been held every year since then. Here is the history of the match:

Will there be a shocking ending or dramatic return on Saturday night?

Ahead of Money in the Bank, WWE chief content officer Paul “Triple H” Levesque dropped a hint that fans may get something extra during the premium live event.

“Got a few surprises in the tank. So, it’s going to be a fun night,” Levesque said on social media.

There will be some high stakes in the World Heavyweight Championship match between Damian Priest and Seth Rollins. If Rollins wins, then Priest must leave The Judgment Day, but if Priest wins, then Rollins cannot challenge for the title as long as Priest remains champion.

Cody Rhodes says prior to his entrance music “Wrestling has more than one royal family,” and while it’s true, there’s another WWE star making a solid case for his family to be in the picture.

Son of Rick Steiner and nephew of Scott Steiner – both WWE Hall of Famers – Bron Breakker has exploded onto the scene ever since he arrived at the company in 2021. He won the NXT Championship twice and the NXT Tag Team Championship, and since his callup to the main roster, he’s become someone with unlimited potential. He’s been nothing but dominant since his arrival, and he’ll have the biggest match of his young career Saturday when he challenges Sami Zayn for the Intercontinental Championship during WWE's 2024 Money in The Bank event.
