Money in the Bank is a special premium live event in the WWE Universe. It features bouts both gimmicky and traditional, a slew of championship matches, and best of all, no commercials, which is quite literally the worst part of watching any wrestling show on television regardless of the promotion.
With hours to fill and Money in the Bank moments to make, Vince McMahon and company have assembled a card with six matches, dozens of performers, and more than a few feuds with roots both deep and shallow.
Will we see championships exchange hands? Will a surprise performer come out of the show with one of the briefcases? Here is a fun fact about each match on the card that could help us to find out.

There’s a little something fun in every match on WWE’s Money in the Bank.
6. Women’s Ladder Match
Of the seven women in the 2022 Money in the Bank Women’s Ladder Match, only two, Asuka and Alexa Bliss have won the event before with the septet having a combined record of 2-7. Fortunately, Both Asuka and Bliss – and everyone else who has won the Women’s Money in the Bank match for that matter too – have successfully cashed in the briefcase, so whoever pulls out the win will be in good shape moving forward.
5. Theory versus Bobby Lashley
Theory has never won a match that also featured Bobby Lashley. He’s never won a singles match, a multi-man match, or even a pose-off, as even the Theory family will attest that Lashley bested him in one of the weirdest segments in recent RAW history.
4. Ronda Rousey versus Natalya
Ronda Rousey isn’t the only wrestler to use the armbar as her finisher. The Fujiwara armbar has been a fixture of wrestling for years now, with everyone from Asuka, to Becky Lynch, Shinsuke Nakamura, Deonna Purrazzo, and even Minoru Suzuki having used the maneuver to very good effect. Natalya’s sharpshooter isn’t original to her either, as she literally learned it from her uncle Brett Hart.
3. The Usos versus The Street Profits
The Usos and The Street Profits have wrestled 23 times, which in this writer’s opinion, is too many times. They know the intricacies of each other’s games, know what moves are coming and exactly how to counter them when they do. Fortunately, fans will certainly earn even more chances to see the duo face-off, as they will surely wrestle over and over again for years to come.

2. Bianca Belair versus Carmella
Carmella might as well be called Ms. Money in the Bank as, from 2017-18, she owned the Pay-Per-View’s namesake match and the SmackDown Woman’s Championship as a result. While she isn’t booked for the Women’s Money in the Bank Ladder Match this year, as she is instead wrestling against Bianca Belair for the RAW Women’s Championship, Mella still holds the record for the longest time holding the Women’s Money in the Bank briefcase at 287 and that probably won’t change any time soon.
1. Men’s Ladder Match
Much like the Women’s match, the Men’s Ladder Match features not one, but two former Money in the Bank winners in Sheamus and Seth Rollins. While neither has won the briefcase this decade, both have previously cashed in their briefcases successfully on a certain “Head of the Table” in the past, meaning that either superstar winning could make things interesting for Roman Reigns.
