While Dolph Ziggler’s cash-in on Monday’s Raw was almost certainly the best of the impromptu uses of the briefcase, it was (surprisingly) not the longest.
When The Miz cashed in his briefcase on a hobbling Randy Orton on the 11/22/10 edition of Raw, it took a full 2:44 for the Awesome One to claim the title. Ziggler defeated Del Rio in 2:05.
The surprise Money in the Bank cash-in matches, by length:
- The Miz defeats Randy Orton — 2:44
- Dolph Ziggler defeats Alberto Del Rio — 2:05
- Edge defeats John Cena — 1:46
- Edge defeats The Undertaker — 1:24
- CM Punk defeats Jeff Hardy — 1:01
- Kane defeats Rey Mysterio — 0:54
- CM Punk defeats Edge — 0:12
- Alberto Del Rio defeats CM Punk — 0:12
- Jack Swagger defeats Chris Jericho — 0:10
- Daniel Bryan defeats The Big Show — 0:07
Of course, the planned cash-ins were considerably longer. John Cena beat CM Punk — by disqualification, failing to capture the WWE Title — in 11:14 on Raw 1000; Rob Van Dam defeated John Cena for the belt in 20:41 at One Night Stand 2006.
An interesting note — Edge was involved in the first five surprise cash-ins. He used the briefcase to steal titles from John Cena and The Undertaker; he lost his World Title to CM Punk; he had just failed to defeat Jeff Hardy for the World Title when CM Punk cashed in again; and he took out Chris Jericho, opening the door for Jack Swagger.
Cena, meanwhile, has been involved in both of the planned cash-ins; neither went too well for him.

I’m not a star. I don’t wanna be a star. I don’t have a great name, the media have never heard of me. No public, no cheerleaders. It’s not about winning or losing, it’s about reaching your limits. Going as far as you can go and then going for them. I don’t collect titles, I collect hours, hours of hard work, hours of pain. As just me, I’m playing for the ultimate victory, the victory of yourself.
This is a way of life, there’s no finish line, becoming the best that you can be, there’s nothing else that matters. Beating the odds, fulfilling your destiny. I don’t wanna be a superstar, i want to be better than that, just want to be me, just wanna be ME.
Shots fiiiiiiiiiiiired! Lol
If I had the chance to kiss Dolph,Punk,Daniel,Cody,John and Kane I sure would, without any repentance. And I know that most female fans of WWE would to do the same thing if they had the opportunity.So stop calling AJ a slut simply because she is luckier than us and have the best job in the world.Don’t be hypocrites —’If kissing makes you a SLUT so I think most women in this world are.
Although not technically father and son, Billy Gunn and Dolph Ziggler’s similarities are too uncanny to be overlooked. Their eerily similar, impressive athleticism and their unnatural love for their own asses make us think this may be WWE’s best kept secret.
