At what is usually one of the most unpredictable WWE Pay-Per-Views of the year, 2013 Money in the Bank didn’t see many changes. All five champions retained their belts, and both favorites won the two ladder matches.
There were a few surprises, with interference helping decided the outcome of multiple matches. Brock Lesnar, Kane and the Wyatt Family didn’t appear at the event.
Below are the complete results from Money in the Bank 2013, as well as a recap for each match. The match card included seven contests on the PPV and one on the pre-show.
WWE Champion John Cena OVER Mark Henry
After failing at several attempts to get Henry up for an “Attitude Adjustment,” Cena was able to make Henry tap put to the “STF.” Henry was dominant for much of the match, but this feud may be over after just a few weeks.
World Heavyweight Champion Alberto Del Rio OVER Dolph Ziggler
It looks like we could be headed for a third match between these two at SummerSlam. Ziggler was given a DQ after AJ tried to help him win, despite his demands that she leave him alone. Look for the couple to officially break up shortly.
Randy Orton Won the Money in the Bank All-Stars
Orton secured the victory after delivering and RKO to Rob Van Dam, who had just fallen off the ladder. CM Punk was close to winning, following interference from Curtis Axel, who attacked Daniel Bryan. He left the ring bloodied, however, when he was betrayed by Paul Heyman.
Damien Sandow Won the World Heavyweight Championship Contract Money in the Bank Ladder Match
After The Shield and The Usos got involved, Sandow was the last man standing, betraying his former tag team partner Cody Rhodes to win the briefcase.
Intercontinental Champion Curtis Axel OVER The Miz
Axel recovered from two recent losses with a clean win over The Miz. Most importantly, he was able to pin The Miz without the help of Paul Heyman, who was forced to leave ringside during the match.
Ryback OVER Chris Jericho
Finally, Ryback got his PPV win over a legitimate opponent. He was unable to pin Jericho with a “Shell Shock,” but got the victory with a rollup.
Divas Champion AJ Lee OVER Kaitlyn
AJ made Kaitlyn tap from the “Black Widow,” defeating her rival at the second straight PPV. She won without much assistance from Big E Langston.
WWE Tag Team Champions Seth Rollins & Roman Reigns OVER The Usos (Kickoff Match)
The members of The Shield retained their titles in the best pre-show match in recent memory.
