8. Raw Money in the Bank Ladder Match
From one Money in the Bank match to another, the Raw Money in the Bank match at the inaugural Money in the Bank pay-per-view was a star-studded affair with a mix of established main eventers and up-and-coming talent.
There was also a mix of styles here with old-school workers like Chris Jericho and Edge, a powerhouse in Mark Henry, and high-flyers John Morrison and Evan Bourne.
The match wasn’t quite as memorable as other Money in the Bank matches but upon a rewatch it is definitely a good time. The Miz winning is what this match is most remembered for and fair play to that.
7. Chris Jericho vs. Evan Bourne – Fatal 4-Way
Remember when WWE wanted to push Evan Bourne really hard for like two weeks? If you weren’t watching WWE in June 2010 you probably won’t!
Thankfully we got an excellent match between Bourne and Chris Jericho for our trouble. If anyone ever tries to say the Fatal 4-Way pay-per-view was worthless, tell them to go back and watch this match.
Bourne was never given much of a chance in WWE due to his size and lack of promo ability, but he could work. Similar to Daniel Bryan, Bourne was an indie star signed to WWE before that became the cool thing to do.
As a result, he was one of the better workers on the roster for the time despite not picking up many wins. This match with Chris Jericho was the biggest singles win of his WWE career and also probably his best match.
6. SmackDown Money in the Bank Ladder Match
Finishing off the trifecta of 2010 Money in the Bank matches is the SmackDown Money in the Bank match.
This was the most exciting of the three matches and the one with the most structure as well. This was also the start of Big Show’s “I’m too big for your tiny furniture so I’ll bring my own” phase.
Big Show was too big for the tiny worthless ladders in this match and brought his own massive ladder. The whole match ended up built around this gargantuan ladder and it allowed for some fun spots unique to this match.
