On Monday’s edition of Raw, Big E cashed in the Money in the Bank contract he had held for 57 days, and pinned Bobby Lashley to become WWE Champion.

As per Fightful Select (subscription required), “almost everyone” was of the belief that Big E was going to win WWE’s top prize. It was noted that Big E’s title victory had been discussed very early after the Money in the Bank pay-per-view.
