Philly.com was live and in the building for the 2013 edition of the much-anticipated Money in the Bank pay-per-view at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia.
To say that this year’s Money in the Bank was eventful would be putting it lightly. We had a huge return and two major betrayals that highlighted both of the Money in the Bank ladder matches.
Without further adieu, let’s get right down to the results.
Main Event: WWE Championship Money in the Bank ladder match - CM Punk vs. Daniel Bryan vs. Rob Van Dam vs. Randy Orton vs. Christian vs. Sheamus
Rob Van Dam came out to a big ovation from the Philadelphia as expected.
His opponents, however, weren’t so delighted to see him as they immediately beat him down and throw him out of the ring. Next to get tossed was Sheamus as he beaten down and disposed of.
Christian and Randy Orton were beaten down by CM Punk and Daniel Bryan and then unceremoniously tossed as well, which Punk and Bryan standing in the ring.
They two Ring of Honor alums have a good wrestling before they interrupted by their opponents. Van Dam was finally able to get some offense in a minute or so later as he took everyone out with his signature moves including rolling thunder on to Bryan while he was on a ladder.
Eventually, all six combatants made their way up multiple ladders at the same time. Punk grabbed the briefcase and swung back and forth, which somehow made all of them fall off the ladders.
Each combatant was given their moment to shine, but no one’s moment shined bright than Van Dam, who hit Christian with a five-star frog splash from the top of a very tall ladder.
Soon after, Bryan began one of his patented comebacks, which included him knocking Sheamus off the top rope with a ladder. Sheamus flew threw another ladder, breaking it in half and ending his time during the match.
Bryan ascended the ladder and made it all the way to the top when Curtis Axel came out and knocked Bryan off the ladder with a chair on behalf of his fellow Paul Heyman guy Punk.
Punk took offense and hit Axel with the GTS, which brought out Heyman himself.
Punk made his way up the ladder only to be hit in the back with a ladder by Heyman. Once Punk hit the mat, Heyman hit Punk in the head so hard with a ladder, it busted him open on the top of his head and required him to get staples after the match.
Heyman then left the arena to a chorus of boos from the Philadelphia fans.
Van Dam tried to capitalize and get to the top of the ladder only to be hit with an RKO from Orton.
Orton climbed to the top to take the briefcase and win the match.
Winner: Randy Orton

WWE Championship – John Cena (c) vs. Mark Henry
As expected, Mark Henry got a very big babyface reaction from the crowd in Philadelphia whereas John Cena was booed almost every time he was shown on screen throughout the night.
As for the match itself, Henry dominated Cena from the outset. Henry even got Cena outside of the ring and suplexed him on to the steel steps.
For the first 10 minutes of the match, Cena may have landed one punch. Other than that it was all Henry.
Cena finally began to mount some offense via a flurry of punches and shoulder blocks. You know, Cena’s usual. Cena built so much momentum and confidence that he tried to lift Henry up for the Attitude Adjustment, but failed to lift the massive Henry.
Eventually, Cena did get him up for the Attitude Adjustment and went for pin, but Henry kicked out at a count of two.
Cena then went for a cross body off the top rope, but was caught by Henry who hit him with the Worlds Strongest Slam.
Henry went for a cover, but Cena also kicked out.

Cena locked in another STFU and forced Henry to tap out.

Del Rio eventually gained momentum with a kick to Zigglers head.Ziggler took back control of the match with a face buster to Del Rio from the top rope.
After a little back-and-forth, the two exchanged a number of near falls.Then Zigglers girlfriend A.J. came to the ring, which left Ziggler kind of puzzled wondering why she was at ringside.

A.J. eventually locked Kaitlyn in a submission move to make her tap out again and retain her title.
Winner and STILL champion: A.J.
Intercontinental Championship – Curtis Axel (c) vs. The Miz
Fans of the old ECW were disappointed from the very beginning of this match.
Early in the match, Curtis Axel gained the upper hand on The Miz and tossed him out of the ring.
The Miz, seeing he was a disadvantage as long as Paul Heyman was a ringside, pretended that Heyman hit him.
The official saw The Miz acting like he was punched in the face by Heyman and promptly ejected the former ECW owner.
The Philadelphia fans did not agree with the official’s decision.
The two combatants went back and forth until The Miz locked in the Figure Four. Axel reversed the move by flipping The Miz over, but Miz rolled back over and locked it back in.
Axel got to the ropes and broke the hold. Axel then hit a modified neck breaker to retain his title.

The match started of with Antonio Cesaro and Jack Swagger clearing the ringlike the team that they are.Swagger made the first attempt at the briefcase, but is thwarted by Dean Ambrose.
Eventually, everyone got their chance to grab the briefcase before being stopped.
There were a number of big and creative spots during the match including Cody Rhodes hitting Cesaro with a muscle buster on a ladder.
It then came down to Rhodes and Ambrose at the top of the ladder.Rhodes got the best of Ambrose and was alone at the top of the ladder.
Then The Shield came out and interferes for faction member Ambrose. The Shield’s opponents from the pre show, The Usos, also come and attack The Shield.

The Usos gained a good amount of offense before The Shield finally took over. After taking a beating for about five minutes, The Usos finally mount a comeback, which included a couple of very close near falls that had the crowd going.
Then both teams combined for a tower of doom spot of the top ropes, which brought the crowd to its feet. The Usos actually hit their finish on Rollins, which brought about another near fall.

Takeaways
- Overall, I though it was a good show. The crowd was into almost every match and the performers worked hard to put on a good show.
- Rob Van Dam and CM Punk took what looked like some nasty injuries during their Money in the Bank match, which resulted in both of them bleeding. They seemed alright though and I would expect them both at Raw.
- There were quite a few people dressed like Bray Wyatt of the Wyatt Family in crowd. It looks as if the WWE is already selling the sheep masks that his two sidekicks where.
- I love the potential the Cody Rhodes-Damien Sandow feud could have. The finish of that Money in the Bank match not only made Sandow more legit by winning, it also made Rhodes made more legit.Vaughn JohnsonPhilly.com #post2 .pw-icon.ra1-pw-icon-reddit {background: url() 0px 0px no-repeat !important;width: 60px !important;height: 20px !important;margin-right:8px;}#post2 .pw-icon.ra1-pw-icon-email {background: url() 0px 0px no-repeat !important;width: 71px !important;height: 28px !important;}0comments
