Punk has won MITB twice

WWE Money in the Bank have given some of the most iconic moments in the history of WWE. This is one of the very few PPV’s which can impact the storylines throughout the year. The WWE Superstars battle in a ladder match to grab the prestigious briefcase.

At times the briefcase is cashed in after almost a year and sometimes, like in the case of Kane and Dean Ambrose, it was cashed in within an hour of getting hold of the briefcase. The stipulation was introduced way back in 2005.

Since then there have been numerous MITB ladder matches, but surprisingly, there is only one WWE Superstar who has won two of the ladder matches and that too on consecutive occasions. The self-proclaimed “Best in the World Superstar” – CM Punk.

Punk made his first appearance in a MITB match in 2007, at Wrestlemania 23. Throughout his WWE career, he appeared in 4 of these matches and has an impressive win record of 50%, with wins in 2 of these appearances.

The first appearance which Punk made in a MITB ladder match was in 2007, which was won by Mr. Kennedy. But Punk dominated these matches for the next two years. He had his first MITB win at Wrestlemania XXIV where he defeated Carlito, Chris Jericho, John Morrison, MVP, Mr. Kennedy and Shelton Benjamin.

The contract was successfully cashed in after Edge, the then-Champion, was attacked by Batista during a promo. Punk capitalized on the attack and went on to become the World Heavyweight Champion.

Punk’s second win came the very next year at Wrestlemania 25 where he defeated Christian, Finlay, Kane, Kofi Kingston, Mark Henry, MVO and Shelton Benjamin. His second win too translated into a successful cash-in as Punk defeated Hardy to be crowned the World Heavyweight Champion again.
