10 Biggest WWE Money In The Bank Surprises

Returns, cash-ins and improbable winners, oh my!

9. Stop! Swagger Time.

The last time the Money in the Bank ladder match would appear on a WrestleMania card (before getting its own standalone pay-per-view) was at WrestleMania XXVI in 2010. 

It was a loaded field, with potential winners including Kane, Christian and, the bookie's favourite, Drew McIntyre. 

The Chosen One wasn't, well, the chosen one, though, but rather ECW's Jack Swagger, who was certainly a wrestler on the rise but still something of a surprising choice for winner. 

The All-American American tried to cash-in the next night on Raw, only to be run off by WWE Champion John Cena but, undeterred, showed up a few nights later on SmackDown and successfully cashed-in on World Heavyweight Champion Jack Swagger. 

Though Swagger cashing-in wasn't too shocking, the speed with which he did so was. Previous briefcase holders had waited for months before doing the deed, while the former ECW Champion couldn't do it fast enough.
