The primary draw to this pay-per-view, in fact, is the Cash within the Financial institution ladder match, the prize of which is a contract that ensures the winner a title alternative a while within the subsequent yr. However over the course of the WWE’s historical past, how typically does it occur that the one that wins Cash within the Financial institution doesn’t find yourself turning into champion?

Solely twice has this occurred, the primary being in 2012. At Cash within the Financial institution that yr, John Cena gained the ladder match by defeating Chris Jericho, The Miz, Kane and Massive Present. Cena solely waited a few week to money in, and he used his Cash within the Financial institution contract on the 1000th episode of Uncooked, which aired on July 23rd, 2012. On the time, the WWE World Heavyweight Champion was CM Punk.

A lot to Cena’s chagrin, Huge Present interfered on this match, attacking John Cena and leading to Cena profitable by disqualification. However, in fact, the title can’t change palms as a result of a disqualification, and so Cena didn't win the World Heavyweight Championship. This was the primary time within the seven-year historical past of Cash within the Financial institution that somebody gained the contract however their eventual title alternative didn't end in them turning into champion.

Funnily sufficient, that really occurred once more the very subsequent yr. In 2013, Damien Sandow defeated Cody Rhodes, Wade Barrett, Dean Ambrose, Jack Swagger, Fandango and Antonio Cesaro to ensure himself a shot on the World Heavyweight Championship.

In 2011, we had our first instance of the results of a cash-in being nullified. Daniel Bryan tried to money in his contract on an episode of SmackDown, pinning Mark Henry and turning into champion. Nevertheless, Teddy Lengthy revealed that Mark Henry was not truly medically cleared to compete, which voided the results of the match. This meant that Henry went again to being champion, however Bryan nonetheless obtained to maintain his contract. The next month, Bryan cashed in at TLC: Tables, Ladders and Chairs towards Huge Present, and this time, the cash-in was profitable.

When it comes to size between profitable the contract and cashing it in, that may final anyplace from lower than an hour to just about 300 days. At Cash within the Financial institution 2017, there can be at the least one first, as viewers will see the primary ever ladies’s Cash within the Financial institution ladder match. And if Dolph Ziggler wins, he'll develop into the second individual to win the Cash within the Financial institution contract twice.
