Sunday night's Money in the Bank pay-per-view was perhaps the most exciting WWE show of 2018 so far. 

The card was stacked from start to finish - which meant the main show ran for five hours, rivaling WrestleMania in length.

But for fans, it was certainly worth it. 

THE BEST BITS

Early in the night, Seth Rollins beat Elias to defend his Intercontinental Championship, before Roman Reigns beat Jinder Mahal in their one v one clash. 

In the first ladder match, it was Alexa Bliss who beat her challengers - climbing the ladder first to pull down the MITB briefcase. 

James Ellsworth made a shock return to help Carmella defend her SmackDown Women's Championship, before AJ Styles beat Shinsuke Nakamura for the WWE Championship. 

What followed that, was one of the highlights of the whole show. Ronda Rousey and Nia Jax met for Rousey's first ever singles match in WWE. 

After over 10 minutes of brutal back and forth, the former UFC women's champ appeared to have her devastating Armbar locked in on Jax - before Bliss came out of nowhere.

The Goddess was Ms. Money in the Bank for all of about 90 minutes before she cashed in on an already beat up Jax to regain her RAW Women's Championship. 

THE MAIN EVENT

But all of that action happened before the main event of the night. Closing the show was the men's ladder match. 

After 20 minutes of carnage, it was Braun Strowman who climbed highest to secure the briefcase - and in turn, a shot at the Universal Championship - and Brock Lesnar.

Against many fans predictions, The Monster Among Men will be taking the contract to RAW and he's wasted little time in setting down the challenge to Lesnar. 

BRAUN'S MESSAGE

Following his huge victory, Strowman took to Twitter to fire a warning to The Beast. 

"It’s official. I am Mr. Monster in the Bank. Not much longer until I come looking for you Brock," he wrote. 

Damn. That's a pretty clear message to Lesnar, a man who himself hasn't been seen since WrestleMania. 

But with his reign truly under threat thanks to Braun's MITB win, we may be seeing the Universal Champ much sooner than SummerSlam - when he was next expected to defend.
