This week on “Smackdown Live”, Baron Corbin cashed in his Money in the Bank contract. Here’s what happened:
Corbin cashed in his briefcase but lost the match to champion Jinder Mahal. Corbin cashed in after John Cena had laid Mahal out with a super AA but Cena offered a distraction, allowing Mahal to roll Corbin up to retain the title. This makes Corbin only the third person ever to cash in his briefcase and lose.
Opinion: I could not be happier about this. Since Shinsuke Nakamura became #1 contender to Mahal’s title, there has been the threat of Nakamura winning the title and having Corbin cash in to win the belt a few minutes later. That’s no longer a threat and it’s such a nice relief. I’m not a fan of the briefcase whatsoever so getting rid of it for nearly a year feels great.
Do you like Corbin losing? Does Nakamura take the title on Sunday? Let us know in the comments below.
