PPV Fusion: Money In The Bank 2012
The 2012 WWE Money In The Bank Pay-Per-View starts with a video recapping past Money In The Bank cash-ins and hyping the upcoming Money In The Bank Ladder Matches, followed by the World Heavyweight Championship Money In The Bank Ladder Match to kick off the PPV, which sees Dolph Ziggler (accompanied by Vickie Guerrero), Santino Marella, Cody Rhodes, Damien Sandow, Tyson Kidd, Sin Cara, Tensai, and Christian taking each other on.
The match sees Ziggler get the victory to become “Mr. World Heavyweight Championship Money In The Bank”, when he climbs up the ladder and retrieves the blue briefcase.
After a video hyping the availability of “No Holds Barred” starring Hulk Hogan on DVD and Digital, and Josh Mathews interviewing Sheamus about his match with Alberto Del Rio later on, Justin Roberts introduces The Miz who is returning after a two month absence.
The Miz makes his way out and talks about how he is now a movie star and was treated with the respect he deserves, and after pointing out that he has won the Money In The Bank Ladder Match before and successfully cashed it in too, he says that he will be a part of the WWE Championship Money In The Bank Ladder Match too, and he says that he will win it and eventually become the WWE Champion – because he’s The Miz, he’s a movie star, and he’s awesome.
After a video recapping Mick Foley (as Mankind) winning the WWE Championship on the 4th January 1999 episode of Monday Night Raw, as well as the comment on WCW Monday Nitro that night that caused 600,000 viewers to immediately switch to Raw, to hype the upcoming 1000th episode, and a video recapping the events that led to the upcoming match, Alberto Del Rio is pitted against Sheamus for the World Heavyweight Championship.
The match sees Sheamus get the victory and retain his title, when he hits Del Rio with the Brogue Kick for the 3-count. Afterwards, Ricardo Rodriguez and Alberto Del Rio attack Sheamus, and once their attack is over, Dolph Ziggler’s music hits and he makes his way to the ring to cash in his Money In The Bank contract for a shot at the World Heavyweight Championship, much to the crowd’s delight as they have been chanting “We want Ziggler”.
The match never officially gets going however, as Del Rio attempts to argue with Ziggler, only for Ziggler to hit him with the briefcase instead, but when Ziggler turns around after handing the briefcase to the referee, Sheamus hits him with a Brogue Kick.
