WWE Money in the Bank 2024 highlights and results

WWE’s 15th annual Money in the Bank pay-per-view proved to be one of the most chaotic events in recent history. Cody Rhodes suffered his first pinfall loss since becoming the undisputed WWE Champion. Tiffany Stratton and Drew McIntyre emerged victorious in their respective Money in the Bank ladder matches, while CM Punk once again turned the world heavyweight championship match on its head.

McIntyre kicked off the event by winning the Men’s Money in the Bank ladder match and, true to his word, cashed in during the world title match between Damian Priest and Seth Rollins. However, Punk intervened, attacking McIntyre and setting up Priest to pin “The Scottish Warrior.” This outcome not only denied McIntyre the world title but also barred Rollins from challenging for it again as long as Priest remains champion, according to the pre-established stipulation.

Also on the show, John Cena shocked the WWE Universe by announcing his retirement, though it won’t be effective immediately, revealing his plan to retire after a farewell tour starting next year.

“Tonight, I officially announce my retirement from WWE,” Cena declared, prompting the crowd to chant, “No! No! No!”. He later clarified in a post-show press conference that he’s eyeing at least 30 dates on his retirement tour between January and December 2025.

“People say they’re walking away, and two years later they come back. I want to set the record straight right now, I’m done. This is it,” Cena said in the press conference. “If you ever wanted to be a part of this one last time, we’re going to do it as big as we can and we’re fighting everybody and we hope you come enjoy the fun.”

Matches and Outcomes:

  • Main Event – Cody Rhodes, Randy Orton, and Kevin Owens vs. The Bloodline: Jacob Fatu was the game-changer, allowing Solo Sikoa to pin Rhodes and secure the victory for The Bloodline.

Solo Sikoa wins via pinfall.
  • Women’s Money in the Bank Ladder Match: Tiffany Stratton’s victory was a highlight, with her impressive performance solidifying her as a top contender in SmackDown’s women’s division. Stratton’s win was well-received and featured several intense moments. Tiffany Stratton wins by retrieving the briefcase.
  • World Heavyweight Championship – Damian Priest vs. Seth Rollins and Drew McIntyre: McIntyre’s cash-in attempt turned the match into a triple threat, but Punk’s interference led to Priest’s successful title defense. This match added another chapter to the Punk-McIntyre storyline and set the stage for a must-see match at SummerSlam. Priest wins via pinfall.
  • Intercontinental Championship – Sami Zayn vs. Bron Breakker: Zayn retained his title in a competitive match that showcased both wrestlers’ strengths. The back-and-forth contest highlighted Zayn as a babyface champion that will fight until the end and Breakker’s growth as a formidable competitor. Sami Zayn wins via pinfall.
