Dolph Ziggler Believes His Money In The Bank Cash In Is The Greatest Of All Time And Here’s Why

Dolph Ziggler is of the belief that he is responsible for the greatest MITB cash in of all time.

Ten years ago this weekend, Dolph Ziggler cashed in his Money In The Bank briefcase on the RAW after WrestleMania, capturing the World Heavyweight Championship from Alberto Del Rio. The crowd was on fire for the moment, and is largely regarded as the greatest cash in of WWE’s history.

In a new interview with Chris Van Vliet, Ziggler went into detail about why his cash in is better than any other Money In The Bank cash in.

“A bunch of people make other arguments, but here’s why mine’s different than if you want to say Seth’s at WrestleMania, or like the first ever one or whatever. I mean, the first one was pretty cool. I didn’t understand the idea, it was Edge, right? And Vince is there and like, it’s, whoa, you know. But here’s why mine is better, because of what I just said. I lost every single match. Vickie talked for me, I got Vickie, and then we go on to AJ and Big E. So I now have a group of three. And I’m losing every single match, except for the ladder match, which was so fun. There’s a great gif of Tensai throwing me into the chairs and I fly around on my head. I win, and I win that and I go how are we going to build on this? Because I can’t just lose 900 matches in a row when this one and then lose 900 in a row again, and the boss goes now you’re gonna lose even more, and not in a devious way, he goes because you have this briefcase, and when that contract gets cashed in, everything is erased. And I go, Okay, that’s a fair point.”

Dolph would not hold the title for long, dropping it quickly after suffering a concussion and losing confidence from the WWE higher ups at the time. Now, ten years on, Ziggler is an established veteran of the WWE roster. However, he thought he was going to be released back in 2009.
