The Money in the Bank breifcase.

The Money in the Bank ladder match is a professional wrestling match held by World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) annually at their pay-per-view event, Money in the Bank. The match can features eight participants, with the objective being to retrieve a briefcase that is suspended above the ring. The briefcase contains a contract, which guarantees a match for one of WWE's two world titles: the WWE Championship, or the World Heavyweight Championship. The contract is valid for one year up to the next year's Money in the Bank, and the briefcase holder—dubbed "Mr. Money in the Bank"—can cash in the contract for a world title match (one of the two, depending on which briefcase they hold), at the date, place, and time of their choosing. The briefcase may also be defended in matches, similar to how championships are defended.



The concept for the Money in the Bank match was introduced in July 2009 by Shelton Benjamin. He pitched the idea to Tony Atlas, who was searching for new ideas. Later that night, he announced the first ever Money in the Bank ladder match would be held at the 2009 edition of Wrestlemania
