The WWE World Heavyweight Championship Changes Hands Twice At Money In The Bank

The main event of Sunday night’s Money in the bank pay-per-view was a WWE World Heavyweight Championship match between champion Roman Reigns and Seth Rollins, the man who never lost the title in the first place before going on the shelf with a knee injury last year.

Reigns and Rollins had a fantastic match, during the course of which Reigns hit his head on the concrete floor while attempting a spear into the barricade. The referee looked like he was going to stop the match, but Rollins rolled Reigns back in the ring. A couple of Pedigrees later, Rollins pinned Reigns to capture his second world title.

However, Rollins’ victory was short-lived. Dean Ambrose, the winner of the Money in the Bank match earlier in the evening, made good on his promise and cashed in. Ambrose’s music hit, but he came through the crowd while Rollins was paying attention to the entrance ramp. He blindsided Rollins with the briefcase, then told the referee he was cashing in. One Dirty Deeds later, Ambrose captured his first-ever WWE World Heavyweight Championship.

Few people predicted that Seth Rollins would defeat Reigns for the title, let alone that the belt would change hands twice in one evening. This now nicely sets up a three-way feud between the three former members of the Shield as SummerSlam approaches.
