Seth Rollins has officially become the longest reigning WWE World Heavyweight Champion who won the title from a Money in the Bank cash in, but is he the most successful Mr Money in the Bank ever?

MONEY IN THE BANK HISTORY

The now infamous Money in the Bank ladder match was first introduced at WrestleMania 21 where it was won by Edge, who subsequently cashed in at New Year's Revolution 2006 only to lose the title back to John Cena at the Royal Rumble later in the month thanks to Mick Foley. 

WrestleMania 22 then saw Rob Van Dam pick up the briefcase and cash in at ECW One Night Stand 2006 a few months later, RVD then lost the title to Edge the following month on Raw.

It seemed like the Money in the Bank contract was cursed after the two previous winners failed to hold it for a long amount of time.

Mr Kennedy then won the briefcase at the following WrestleMania before losing the case to Edge, who cashed in on The Undertaker the following week on Raw. The title was then relinquished due to a legit injury to Edge later in the year.

CM Punk went on to win the Money in the Bank contract at two consecutive WrestleMania's where his combined reigns only add up to 119 days. 

Jack Swagger was the final man to win the Money in the Bank contract from the WrestleMania ladder match and he cashed in on Chris Jericho on an episode of Smackdown. Swagger only held the title for 82 days before he then lost it to Rey Mysterio at Fatal-Four-Way. 

MONEY IN THE BANK PAY-PER-VIEW

Since the Money in the Bank ladder match was made into a pay-per-view back in 2010, there have been two contract winners every year until the titles were unified on 2013. 

Kane was the first ever winner and he set the record with 154 days following his cash in, this was then followed by The Miz who broke that record with his 160 day reign as champion. 

Since then the likes of Daniel Bryan, Dolph Ziggler, Alberto Del Rio and Randy Orton have cashed in and failed to reach the record set by The Miz. John Cena and Damien Sandow also won the contract but failed to win the Championship when they cashed in. 

This means that Seth Rollins is the most successful Mr Money in the Bank ever after he has surpassed not only The Miz's record, but also the 119 days combined reigns from CM Punk and the 73 day combined reigns of Edge. 

Seth Rollins currently still holds the title as well, meaning that he can only continue to break and create records before his next defence at next month's Hell in a Cell pay-per-view.
