PRE-PPV:

-Santino Marella & Vladimir Kozlov defeated David Otunga & Michael McGillicutty in a non-title dark match.

-A great video package built around CM Punk’s comments and footage of Vince McMahon at various press conferences etc. They had a clock sound effect playing up that Punk’s contract is up at Midnight tonight.

-Maryse is with the Fink in the WWE.com chatroom for the PPV tonight.

-Colt Cabana is in the front row. ICP (The Insane Clown Posse) is also at ringside. Ace Steele who also used to be in the WWE (Fake Donald Trump) and is another CM Punk friend is ringside with Colt.

-Just to save space but 10 minutes into the PPV and throughout every match there were loud CM Punk chants as the Chicago crowd was super hot tonight!

-Daniel Bryan, Colt Cabana and ECW are all trending. Oh and of course CM PUNK is so trending!

POST-PPV:

-The shirt that CM Punk was wearing at Money in the Bank was being sold special at the building. The shirt sold out completely by 8:15 PM.

-There were several places that reported having issues with seeing Money in the Bank. A rep from Comcast reportedly said they were overloaded while a place in Columbus, Ohio was the only place showing the PPV and had half the restaurant closed off because they didn't staff for it. Meanwhile

-After CM Punk left through the crowd, Vince McMahon stayed on the apron looking out into the crowd for a few minutes before slowly walking towards the back. He waited for Johnny Ace, who was being helped by two referees. Vince then nailed Johnny, laying him out before walking off. That was it.

-There's still talks to do CM Punk vs. Steve Austin (age 46-47 by then) at the next Wrestlemania and it's mostly up to Austin if he can do it. He does like Punk's work and praised it, while Punk did support him with the shirts. HHH is another one talked about for Punk if he returns since HHH was brought up in the promos.

-And while there's tons on Twitter and online, Jim Ross got his thoughts on the PPV up too at http:www.jrsbarbq.com/blog

Alright the news returns back to normal on the Behind the Scenes news. Enjoy the report below and ALL HAIL CM PUNK!

Hey all andy1 here and as trigunkwan mentioned we'll be brining you results and news for what has become this years most anticpated WWE PPV Money in The Bank.

http://www.411mania.com/wrestling/news/194292/Click-HERE-To-Join-411s-LIVE-WWE-Money-in-the-Bank-Coverage.htm

The Smackdown Money in the Bank Ladder Match is up first.


Smackdown Money in the Bank Ladder Match
Kane vs. Justin Gabriel vs. Daniel Bryan vs. Sin Cara vs. Wade Barrett vs. Heath Slater vs. Sheamus vs. Cody Rhodes
We start off with all eight men brawling in the ring, but quickly we're down to Sheamus and Barrett double-teaming Kane. Kane clotheslines both Sheamus out of the ring and retrieves a ladder on the outside, but Bryan baseball slides the ladder into Kane's chest. Slater retrieves a ladder and sets it up in the corner, but Gabriel climbs the turnbuckles and steps onto the ladder. Bryan comes off the top turnbuckle and connects with a drop kick to Gabriel. Rhodes climbs the ladder, but Sheamus catches him and goes for the Celtic Cross. Rhodes slides out the back, but Sheamus traps him in the corner and throws the ladder into him. Kane storms the ring and choke slams both Sheamus and Rhodes over the top rope and to the outside. Barrett rushes Kane, but Kane drops him before throwing the ladder over the top rope and onto Sheamus and Rhodes. Kane heads up top, but Sin Cara catches him with a boot to the skull. Bryan and Gabriel brawl in the ring, but Bryan exits the ring with a suicide dive onto Barrett. Gabriel goes over the top rope onto Kane, and slater follows up with a corkscrew plancha onto Rhodes. Sin Cara comes off the top rope and connects with Sheamus on the outside. Bryan and Sin Cara head up top, and Sin Cara hits his moonsault side slam from the top turnbuckle. Sin Cara is the only man on his feet, so he heads to the outside and grabs a ladder. Barrett blind sides him and sets up a ladder as a bridge between the ring apron and the announce table. Sin Cara climbs back into the ring, but Sheamus damn near decapitates him with the Brogue Kick. Sheamus takes Sin Cara out onto the ring apron and sets him up near the bridge ladder. SHEAMUS POWERBOMBS SIN CARA THROUGH THE LADDER! Sin Cara snapped the ladder in half. I can't tell for sure, but it looks like there might be blood on the jagged edges of the broken ladder. Bryan, Kane and Rhodes are in the ring as Sin Cara is being stretchered to the back. Kane levels Bryan and Rhodes and begins to climb a ladder, but Barrett, Gabriel, and Slater attack him. Rhodes tries to climb the ladder while no one is looking, but the ex-Corre members beat him down. Bryan tries to climb, but the former Corre members take him out as well. Barrett tries to convince Gabriel and Slater to watch his back as he climbs the ladder, but they quickly drag him back down to the mat. Gabriel and Slater climb the ladder, but Rhodes tips the ladder and follows up with Cross Rhodes to Slater. By the way, the crowd is ON FIRE tonight. Barrett catches Rhodes, but Rhodes connects with a Cross Rhodes to Barrett as well. Sheamus catches Rhodes and drops him with a back breaker. Sheamus begins to climb, but Bryan follows him up the ladder. Bryan repeatedly slams Sheamus' head into the ladder and climbs past him. Sheamus gets Bryan on his shoulders, and Kane comes off the top rope to complete the Doomsday Device. Nice little homage to the Road Warriors in an old AWA stronghold. Sheamus levels Kane with a clothesline. Sheamus bridges a ladder between the second turnbuckle and the ladder in the middle of the ring. Kane takes out Sheamus, Barrett, and Gabriel before beginning to climb the ladder. Bryan hangs on to Kane and tries to lock in the LeBell Lock on the ladder, but Kane drags him down. Kane lifts Bryan, but Bryan counters into a DDT. Slater begins to climb, and yes, yes indeed, even Heath Slater is getting intense heat from the crowd. This crowd is going to give us a great show tonight. Barrett rips Slater off the ladder and stomps a mud hole in him in the corner. Slater heads up top, but Barrett crotches him on the top turnbuckle. Barrett levels Sheamus and heads outside for another ladder. Barrett slides a third ladder in the ring, and he and Sheamus drive it into Slater's gut on the top turnbuckle. Barrett and Sheamus try to use the ladder to slingshot Slater, but instead Slater just falls to the outside onto Kane. Sheamus sets up a ladder on the top rope and drops Gabriel into snake eyes. Sheamus climbs the ladder, but Kane climbs the other side. Sheamus and Kane slug it out on the top of the ladder, but Sheamus knocks Kane down to the mat. Kane grabs Sheamus' boot and drags him a few rungs back down the ladder. KANE CHOKE SLAMS SHEAMUS THROUGH THE BRIDGING LADDER! Unlike the Sin Cara spot, the ladder does not give a bit this time around. Gabriel heads up to the ladder that is sitting on the top rope. GABRIEL HITS THE 450° SPLASH FROM THE LADDER ONTO KANE! Barrett heads up the ladder, but Rhodes drags him back down. Rhodes clotheslines Barrett to the outside as Bryan climbs the ladder. Rhodes and Barrett climb the ladder along with Bryan. Bryan locks in the LeBell Lock on Rhodes at the top of the ladder before knocking him down to the mat. Barrett drags Bryan over the top of the ladder and goes for Wasteland, but Bryan goes crazy with elbow shots to the head. Barrett stands on the bridging ladder and tries to regroup, but Bryan levels him with a kick to the head. Barrett falls to the mat, and Bryan is all alone on the ladder. DANIEL BRYAN CLIMBS TO THE TOP OF THE LADDER AND RETRIEVES THE BRIEFCASE TO WIN THE MATCH!
Match Result: Daniel Bryan wins the Smackdown Money in the Bank Ladder Match.
Match Length: 24:29

(WOW even though I had Bryan as winning this most predictions elswhere made me feel less confident.Superb openeing contest with a hot crowd adding so much which is an excellent way to kick off the PPV.Will check and confirm what the situation with Sin Cara is hopefully its not a legit injury but will confirm)

Thanks andy1 for starting things off! Here's match #2 on the PPV.

Sourced from http://www.thefightnetwork.com/news/11749:wwe-money-in-the-bank-report/

* Kelly Kelly (c) vs. Brie Bella for the WWE Divas Championship in a singles match

Before the match they showed Vince McMahon arriving with John Laurinaitis and a WWE attorney.

Eve Torres is in the corner of Kelly. Nikki Bella of course is in Brie's corner.

There is a nasty tilt-a-whirl spot by Kelly and then they fight on the floor with Kelly laying out both Bellas. Kelly had a head scissors while she is upside down on the apron and gets dropped front first onto the floor. Brie works over the right arm of Kelly. Kelly goes for the famouser, it is countered into a backslide but Brie blocks. Kelly goes for a face plant but Brie drops too fast and then Kelly comes back with the famouser for the win and keeps the title. Nikki tells Brie that Kelly doesn’t even eat and why she couldn’t beat Kelly.

(COMMENTS: Well whatever exists for the Divas division fills time between matches but man it looked ugly.)

A promo airs for SummerSlam with Cee Lo Green doing the theme song.

3rd match in.

http://www.411mania.com/wrestling/news/194292/Click-HERE-To-Join-411s-LIVE-WWE-Money-in-the-Bank-Coverage.htm

The Big Show vs. Mark Henry
Show and Henry slug it out to start, but Show comes off the ropes and levels Henry with a flying shoulder block that sends Henry out of the ring. Show follows Henry out of the ring and levels him on the outside. Show tries to choke slam through the Spanish announce table, but Henry tries to counter into a scoop slam through the Spanish announce table. Show counters and sends Henry tumbling over the ring steps. Show heads toward Henry, but Henry kicks the ring steps into Show's knees. Henry rolls Show back into the ring, drops him with a chop block, and slams Show's injured knee into the mat. Henry locks in a single-leg Boston Crab, but Show finally manages to crawl across the ring and grab the rope. Henry grabs Show's legs, but Show kicks him across the ring. Henry splashes Show in the corner, but Show catches him with a Big Boot when he tries it again. Show heads up to the second turnbuckle and levels Henry with a flying shoulder block. Show goes for the choke slam, but Henry kicks the knee and counters into the World's Strongest Slam for a two count. Henry drags Show back to his feet and hits another World's Strongest Slam. Henry hits the ropes and splashes Show. Henry hits the ropes and connects with another splash for the three count.
Match Result: Mark Henry defeats the Big Show with a big splash.
Match Length: 5:56


After the match, Henry grabs a chair from ringside and Pillmanizes Show's ankle. Henry heads up the ramp as a stretcher and the Undertaker Memorial Cart are brought down to ringside. The crowd has had enough of this situation and is once again chanting for CM Punk. Show climbs on the cart and is driven to the back.

(Well bit surprised we got a clear winner for this one and with what occured in the aftermath I;d asume Show either is taking time off with injury or another movie though a simulr situation happend with his mini-feud with ADR so he could be back by summerslam.)

Mr. McMahon is in the back strategizing with John Laurinaitis and a lawyer. Josh Mathews interviews Mr. McMahon, and Mr. McMahon confirms that he has not re-signed CM Punk. McMahon tells us that CM Punk told him to get out of the room after their final negotiations. If CM Punk leaves the building with the WWE Championship tonight, may God have mercy on John Cena's soul.

The Raw Money in the Bank Ladder Match is up next.

Match #4 is here!

* RAW Money in the Bank Ladder Match for a shot at the WWE Championship to cash in at any time within a year's time - The 8 Participants: Rey Mysterio, Kofi Kingston, Evan Bourne, Alberto Del Rio, R-Truth, Jack Swagger, Alex Riley, The Miz

All the guy grab ladders to start and attack Del Rio, who is sent to the floor. Mysterio is sent front first to the floor and lands on a ladder. Riley dives over the top rope onto Swagger and Miz and then R-Truth with a tope con hilo to the floor on all three. Kingston and Mysterio with stereo crossbodies to the floor. It builds to Bourne hitting a shooting star press off the top of a ladder to everyone on the floor in a spectacular spot.

The Miz and Bourne are on the ladder in the middle of the ring but Del Rio tips it over Miz looks to have injured his knee and is helped to the back. Kingston springboards over Swagger onto the ladder but Swagger applies the ankle lock as Riley comes from the other side to climb the ladder. Kingston hits the Boom Drop off the top rope and bounces off a ladder on the ropes. They do a spot where all seven are on the ladders going for the briefcase but all fail.

Kingston climbs but Swagger stops them and Swagger falls awkwardly with Kingston landing on top. The Miz runs out to a massive babyface reaction but Mysterio stops him and Mysterio gets a chorus of boos. Del Rio and Mysterio are climbing but Del Rio yanks the mask off of Rey and he shields his face but accidentally knocks Del Rio off his ladder, Del Rio climbs again and wins the match.

(COMMENTS: Having Alberto win was the right if predicted choice by many. Playing off Rey's mask and their old feud though was a nice twist to the ending.)

And here's match #5 and the last bit from me aside post PPV news.

Sourced from http://www.f4wonline.com/more/more-top-stories/96-wwe/21395-money-in-the-bank-its-on-live-coverage

* Randy Orton (c) vs. Christian for the World Heavyweight Championship in a singles match
(Note: If Orton is disqualified, or if there is a bad referee call, Christian immediately becomes the new champion.)

This crowd was completely pro-Christian and booing Orton. So the finish got exactly the opposite reaction desired but crowd cheered the move instantly because they knew Christian won the title with the move. Great match with super heat because the crowd was so into Christian. They booed heavily when Orton kicked out of the killswitch. Orton also used an Angle Slam once again despite someone's warnings against it (it's Angle himself if you wish to know). The finish saw Christian spit in Orton's face and Orton went berserk, and kicked Christian low for the DQ, so Christian won the title. After the match, Orton hit Christian with a monitor and gave him an RKO on the table, which didn't break. Orton lefft and was told to come back to break the table as planned, so he did the move again and again the table didn't break. Crowd was really buzzing when it was over, so it's not like the table not breaking made a difference. Actually they ended up cheering Orton like crazy for going berserk when it was over.

(COMMENTS: Kudos once again to the Chicago crowd who is making the Mania crowd seem so tame this year. They even went with things from booing Orton since they wanted Christian to win to cheering both as Christian won and then Orton went over the edge this time.)

Some notes before the main event:

-The Miz is okay, but Del Rio is messed up, cut up back of his head and ribs hurting. Expect him back out later.

-The Cena-Punk segment with everything is scheduled for a 40 minute segment off the air 47-50 past the hour.

-Punk super over as expected.

Main Event time.

http://www.411mania.com/wrestling/news/194292/Click-HERE-To-Join-411s-LIVE-WWE-Money-in-the-Bank-Coverage.htm


WWE Championship Match
John Cena (Champion) vs. CM Punk
And here we go. Punk and Cena circle each other to start, but Punk quickly grabs a side head lock. Punk goes behind into a rear hammer lock, but Cena counters into a seated rear chin lock. Punk tries to take Cena's head off with a vicious kick, but Cena just manages to duck. "You can't wrestle! You can't wrestle! You can't wrestle!" – The Crowd. Punk looks at the crowd and points to himself, but the crowd assures him they aren't chanting at him. Punk catches Cena with the Anaconda Vice, but Cena reverses into an arm bar. Cena drops Punk with a shoulder block, and that is just about the loudest boo you will ever hear for a shoulder block. Cena catches Punk with a side head lock and drags him down to the mat. Punk escapes and runs the ropes, but Cena gets him up for the Attitude Adjustment. Punk escapes and gets Cena up for the Go To Sleep, but Cena escapes. Cena honestly looks like he didn't expect the hate to be THIS intense. Punk kicks Cena down to the mat and then stomps a mud hole in him in the corner. Cena whips Punk to the corner and catches him with a bulldog on the rebound for a two count. Cena locks in a front chancery on the mat.

Punk connects with a snap mare takedown and locks in a rear chin lock on the mat. Cena fights back to his feet and whips Punk to the corner, but Punk lands a big boot and lands a cross body for a two count. Cena looks to have tweaked his knee when Punk connected with the cross body. Punk tries to suplex Cena back into the ring, but CENA SUPLEXES PUNK OVER THE TOP ROPE AND DOWN TO THE ARENA FLOOR! Punk really did take the bump all the way. They're once again right in front of Colt Cabana. Cena rolls Punk back into the ring and gets a two count. Cena hits another Fisherman's Suplex for a two count. Cena hits a modified Attitude Adjustment, but Punk kicks out at two. Punk is back on his feet, but he appears dazed. Punk and Cena slug it out in the middle of the ring, but Cena whips Punk to the ropes and locks in an abdominal stretch. Punk counters into a hip toss to escape, and both men level each other with simultaneous clotheslines. Cena drops Punk with a flying shoulder block and goes for the Protobomb, but Punk floats over into a sunset flip for a two count. Cena hits the Protobomb and goes for the Five Knuckle Shuffle, but Punk counters and tosses Cena to the outside. Punk hits a suicide dive to the outside, and the Punk is in LOVE with Punk. Punk rolls Cena back into the ring and goes for a springboard flying clothesline, but Cena evades. Cena once again calls for the Five Knuckle Shuffle, and this time he connects. Cena goes for the Attitude Adjustment, but Punk rotates far enough to land on his ass instead of his back. Punk sweeps the leg and gets a two count. Punk goes for the Go To Sleep, but Cena counters into a gut-wrench slam for a two count. Cena goes for the Attitude Adjustment yet again, but Punk counters into two knee shots on the ropes followed by a bulldog in the middle of the ring. Punk hits the springboard flying clothesline but only gets a two count. Punk waits for Cena to get to his knees and goes to work with the kicks to the chest. Cena fucks a kick and locks in the STF. Punk is a LONG way from the ropes, but he slowly crawls and FINALLY makes it to the ropes. Cena tries to drag Punk back to the middle of the ring, but Punk connects with a kick to the back of the head for a two count. Punk heads up top and hits a cross body, but Cena rolls through and goes for the Attitude Adjustment. Punk counters and goes for the Go To Sleep, but Cena reverses right into the STF. Punk tries to grab the ropes, but Cena drags Punk back to the middle of the ring. Punk REFUSES TO TAP< and reverses into the Anaconda Vice!

PUNK HITS THE GO TO SLEEP, but Cena rolls out of the ring. Punk rolls Cena back into the ring, but Vince McMahon and John Laurinaitis come out and stand on the stage. Punk finally slides into the ring, and CENA CATCHES HIM WITH THE STF! Laurinaitis calls for the bell, but Punk breaks the hold, slides out of the ring, and levels Laurinaitis! Cena heads over to McMahon and tells him that he will NOT win that way. Cena slides back into the ring, but PUNK CATCHES HIM WITH THE GO TO SLEEP FOR THE THREE COUNT! PUNK WINS! PUNK WINS! PUNK WINS!
Match Result: CM Punk defeats John Cena with the Go To Sleep.
Match Length: 33:37

Punk music plays, but McMahon gets on a headset and tells the production team to cut the music. He calls for Del Rio to come out and cash in his Money in the Bank contract, so Del Rio runs down to the ring. Del Rio slides into the ring, but Punk levels him. Punk jumps the guard rail and disappears into a sea of loving fans. Punk celebrates at the top of the arena and then heads out onto the concourse. Punk leaves with the title, and we close with a shot of Vince McMahon stewing in the ring.

(UNBELIVABLE Punk did it.Credit to Cena for taking the heel role for majority of the match and intresting play on Vince trying to Montreal Punk . Not surprised the ADR cashing in didn't go ahead as if he's was banged up best to hold up and build to Summerslam.Not much more to say except this was the WWE PPV of the year 2011)
