WWE Money In The Bank Results (7/14/12) – Dolph Ziggler & John Cena Win MITB Contracts; Sheamus & CM Punk Retain Titles

Josh Mathews is backstage with Sheamus. He asks him about Dolph. Sheamus says he’s not worried about the future, he’s worried about tonight. He says Del Rio is a vicious competitor. He says he’s a bit of a car enthusiast himself. He doesn’t need a fancy car or hood ornament though, because the only ornament he needs is his title. He’s fine driving a clunker that gets the job done. A car that’ll end up in a scrap yard. He says that’s funny because tonight next to the transmissions, you’ll find Alberto Del Rio and Ricardo Rodriguez.

The Miz makes his return to the WWE after a two-month period of absence. He actually gets a little ‘Miz is awesome’ chant. He asks if the crowd missed him and he gets a little pop. He says he was off filming a movie and you’re looking at a bona fide movie star. He says he was treated with the respect he earned and has been denied far too long. He says he has won the Money in the Bank ladder match and has successfully cashed in for the contract. Tonight, he’s tired of being overlooked, and he wants to make a sudden impact, so tonight the Raw Money in the Bank match will have five competitors, and Miz will prevail over everyone else. He will eventually become the WWE Champion again. Why? Because he’s the Miz, and he a movie star, and he’s awesome.

We get a little Raw moment since the 1000th episode is coming up. It’s a review of when Tony Shiavone made a comment about Mick Foley winning the WWE Championship, and over 600,000 people changed the channel. Cool little moment from the Monday night wars that’s paired with some thoughts from Foley.

We get a recap of the interview between Josh Matthews and Daniel Bryan during the pre-show. Bryan calls AJ his future wife and says she would have said yes had CM Punk not been there poisoning her mind. Matthews says she slapped him in the face. Bryan says he clearly doesn’t understand women. That kind of passion is something only soul mates can share. Tonight she’ll make the tough and necessary decisions. She’ll be fair. He’ll emerge with the championship and AJ’s heart. Yes, yes, yes.

    Super Cena Won….FAIL

    • Daniel Lim'ass

      Entered for the first time and won. What are the odds? Duh

  • EddieB

    Not sure Cena was suppose to win? Was it an accident the brief case came off? I love Jericho but yet again he lost another PPV. Tell me why he came back after all that hype just to turn in to a jobber! I hope Bob Backlund comes back full time now after this Cena love fest!

  • Benjs

    Dz next champ
    Db and punk feud gunna continue I like this
    I’d love to see punk vs db wrestlemainia maybe a huge lader match
    Sham yeah yeah he sucks
    Ry-burg I like him can’t wait to see him in an actual storyline
    Cena no surprise nothing new I would of preferred Chris but honestly no surprise cena hasn’t been champ for a whole but nothing new

  • mark freeman

    Was Cena supposed to win? He had a kinda shell shocked look on his face afterwards, plus the ppv was over 15 minutes early – I know he would of won anyway, its Cena plus it leads to the Rock fighting for the title which he promised us he would do when he returns. And if I was Jericho I would be tearing someone a new one backstage, that case snapped too easily only 5 minutes after he had swung over the ring on it. After the clasp snapped I just thought back to Jericho and then to Owen Hart, I know it was nothing like the Owen situation, but no clasp in the WWE should ever break.

    • jon

      The face that cena made when the case broke was all it took for me to start doubting that it was meant to happen. Cena just isn't that good of an actor. He looked legitimately shocked.

    • proud

      100% backing you up there mate

    • Immy

      Yeah I thought he’d botched the ending.

    • Sythian

      The clasp didn’t break, the handle of the briefcase snapped off, also jericho was holding higher up on the chain so as to avoid something like that with the case snapping. I do see your point though with Owen Hart, but this was a little different.

  • Max

    christian should have won he was great

  • Alagranchet

    Was it me or did I hear Jerry Lawler say its a F****N giant ladder , when show was pulling the ladder from under the ring?

    • Keagan

      Ya I herd it to.

    • Kleck

      No, I just looked at that specfic part because I thought he said it to. He said freaking

  • Ryan

    time for some investigative reporting, Richard, to see if Cena was actually supposed to have won tonight! I agree with you, though, I think he was probably scripted to win, but you could tell he was surprised when the clasp broke.

  • Sean

    what a fail of a ppv.. Ziggler most exciting match of the night. Of course Cena is the main event. You know Vince keeps pushing this no one man is above the WWE crap… But Cena is the Main event of EVERY PPV this month after the WWE championship. Way to go Vince, you made the house you built, meaningless

  • graham hodis

    Another drab ppv and cena wins to close the show. Past two ppvs have been very average. Lets hope summerslam is much better otherwise i can see a lot of wwe fans not buying ppvs anymore

  • ryan

    the crock isnt winning no title he is such a loser!

  • Chuck

    It seemed like everyone botched a move in the 1st MItb ladder match.. Maybe too many ppl or maybe they were nervous. I predict rock wins title and Cena cashes in on him at wrestlemania!!

  • John dickson

    Rock beats cm punk for title on 1000th episode of raw , cena cashes in on same night beats the rock , which leads to a wrestlemania rematch.

  • Voice of Wrestling

    not going to lie but CM punk and D brys match could be match of the year, also Tyson Kidd and Damien Sandow both really impressed me, but the perfectionist Dolph was the obvious outcome which he deserves , but Lord Botchi could of injured someone last night at the way he was wrestling tbh, and John Cena looked like a botch and a half he looked so surprised and so did Jericho who I think should of won, lets see what happens tonight people.

  • Austin

    Typical Super Cena. Now we know anything that involves John Cena must be in the main event.

  • http://www.12ozprophet.com Dangerous Lee

    I watched the ppv at a sports bar. Everyone was waiting for SinCara to botch. When he did, the place went wild! It was hilarious.

    • Mr.Kevo

      Nah man Sin Cara didn't botch that spot Ziggler just slipped. I thought he did too at first but I re watched it.

    • Razmos01

      Ziggler botched the move thats why Sin Cara kicked out at him in anger, Ziggler slipped and Sin Cara actually managed to manuveur so both could take a decent enough bump to prevent injury
