When it comes to the Money in the Bank Ladder Match, what does that exactly entail? To make it easy for us all, the winner of both the Men's and Women's match is awarded with a briefcase that contains a contract for a world championship match. The winner can cash in the contract at any time and place of his or her choosing within the next year, and it starts the evening they win the briefcase. The winners have a year to cash in the contract, and with the winners, it should be a very important moment in their careers.

And with the men who were in this years match, there was certainly an argument for every one to deserve the win, so at the start of the match there was a moment of unknown on who was going to win but that is when WWE Official Adam Pearce came out to make an announcement, it was an announcement that changed the night completely. He added Theory to the match, who earlier in the night lost his United States Championship. Theory, who is Mr. McMahon's next made man took this opportunity to the finish line as he ended up climbing up the ladder to retrieve the briefcase. Becoming the youngest Money in the Bank winner in history at 24 years young.

Theory is someone who is easy to hate and that is his charm, he is super talented and has so much future ahead of him. He was loved on the independent circuit, but now that he is in the WWE, people now hate him. The fact that he is Mr. McMahon's hand picked talent for the future is making wrestling fans hate him. And since it is the cool thing to hate every single thing the WWE does, people have their blinders up on how great Theory could be and will be. Imagine ten years from now, where he will be, and that will be simply a multi time WWE Champion among thousand of other accolades. The fact that people hate him is a blessing. Look at The Miz, look at John Cena, look at Roman Reigns to name a few. Everyone hated their pushes and they all are in different levels of WWE immortality, it has worked out ten fold. Every single one of those performers are game changers in the industry, Theory will be no different. And thanks to the big win he had at Money in the Bank, we are witnessing the start of something special. Everyone should enjoy it now, because we are in for quite the ride.

He has a year to cash in his briefcase on likely Roman Reigns, and as soon as the upcoming SummerSlam show, but likely they will drag it out a little bit, which is fine and will be great because it will build him as a star and it will lead to newer stars because whomever beats Theory will be loved even more. We are here for the ride ahead, because it will be epic. You heard it here first.

And then that leads us to the winner on the Women's Money in the Bank match, which has its owns advantages.

Always the bridesmaid and never the bride, Liv Morgan has had chance after chance to become an elite competitor in the WWE and one that will be remembered forever and also has had the fans on her side day in and day out, but finally she cashed her ticket into future immortality as she finally won the big one, and has finally won the 2022 Women's Money In The Bank match to the utter delight of everyone in attendance and watching worldwide. She gives almost a complete opposite look of what people think of Theory, which adds to it all since we can now see both sides of storytelling in the Men's and Women's division. With Morgan's win, she took advantage of her good luck almost immediately as she became the WWE's SmackDown Women's Champion later in the night as she cashed in on current champion Ronda Rousey, who had a difficult match with Natalya beforehand.

Morgan took her chance and succeeded and we love every single minute of it because it now gives her the chance to prove herself in the division. She will likely have a rematch with Rousey at SummerSlam, which if she wins can lead into more matches with returning Charlotte Flair, and if Morgan chalks up victories on Flair and has two pin falls on Rousey, then Morgan can write her own ticket to make the SmackDown Women's Championship into a title of prominence once again.

Morgan is ready, she has plenty of competition and since she is locking it all down now, this past Money in the Bank may be looked at as the start on the new WWE. Since the WWE is always evolving, Morgan and Theory winning are the right picks, now it is up them to live up to their potential and we think it is going to happen.

With these two victories, other important things happened on the show, take a peak on those results below.
