*Video* ICYMI Baron Corbin Cashed in His MITB Briefcase


On tonight’s episode of WWE SmackDown Live, WWE Champion Jinder Mahal competed in a non-title match against former 16-time World Champion John Cena. Cena gave Mahal and Attitude Adjustment but Mahal kicked out. Cena then gave Mahal a Super Attitude Adjustment off of the top rope and appeared to have the match won until Baron Corbin entered the ring and interfered, causing a disqualification.

Corbin attacked Cena with his Money in the Bank briefcase and then cashed in the MITB contract for a WWE Championship title match with Jinder Mahal. Cena got back up and Corbin knocked him off the ring apron, which gave Mahal the opportunity to sneak up on Corbin and roll him up for a pinfall victory.

As a result, Baron Corbin becomes just the third person in history to cash in the Money in the Bank contract and not win a World Championship. The other two people to do so were John Cena and Damien Sandow.

Highly passionate MMA Journalist, and I've followed the sport ever since my favorite fighter, Vitor Belfort won the heavyweight tournament at UFC 12. After that I've tried to go to every local MMA event around the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas and decided to make it a point to have a career in some aspect in the fighting sport other than fighting in general (didn't want to ruin my face). I'm currently enrolled at Southeastern Louisiana University working towards a degree in Communication. I cover MMA, Boxing and Football for The Daily Star newspaper in my hometown of Hammond, Louisiana, in addition to working as a promotional writer for a local Boxing promotion known as BoxnCar and I cover boxing for 8countnews.com however SciFighting.com is my home. My main goal is to bring more publicity to MMA in my area and to the sport as a whole as all of us involved with the sport are merely scratching the surface and laying the foundation of what mixed martial arts competition will be further down the road.
