Published Add your comment

Last night's brutal Money in the Bank contract match saw Sheamus climb the ladder and retrieve the briefcase to become the 2015 Mr Money in the Bank.

This now means that Sheamus can cash in at any opportunity and battle to become the new WWE World Heavyweight Champion, but will he be on par with some of the best?

The Money in the Bank contract has been cashed in an impressive 15 times since the contract match made it's debut at WrestleMania 21. Of these 15, there is only two men who have cashed in their contract and failed to win.

5 - Rob Van Dam cashes in on John Cena

WrestleMania 22 was just the second time the Money in the Bank contract match took place and it saw the Human Highlight Reel Rob Van Dam walk out victorious. Van Dam then decided that he wasn't the kind of superstar that was going to sneak up on the champion, he wanted a scheduled match.

The ECW brand had returned to WWE and RVD was a shining light in it's reformation. This lead RVD to become the first and only superstar so far in WWE history to give the champion prior notice of the match and schedule it.

ECW One Night Stand 2006 saw RVD vs John Cena for the WWE Championship, RVD was the favourite heading into the match as the crowd were firmly behind Mr Monday Night. The hostile audience didn't like Cena and made this apparent throughout, but it was someone who disliked Cena a little more than the audience that cost him his championship.

Edge ran to the ring in a motorcycle helmet and hit Cena with a thunderous spear through a table after the referee had been taken out, Van Dam then covered Cena and Paul Heyman ran out to make the three count himself to crown Van Dam champion.

Van Dam is still the only superstar to give the champion prior notice of the match and still walk out with the title. He is also the only triple crown champion having won the WWE, ECW and TNA world championships.
