Ambrose wins ladder match, cashes in for WWE title at Money in the Bank

By Ivan Saldajeno

LAS VEGAS--Dean Ambrose stole the limelight from fellow Shield members Roman Reigns and Seth Rollins as he won the WWE title at Money in the Bank at the T Mobile Arena on Monday (Philippine Time).

Ambrose, who won the Money in the Bank ladder match against five other wrestlers earlier in the day, quickly cashed in and spoiled Rollins' historic moment.

Rollins, who had his first pay-per-view match since suffering an ACL injury last year, took the belt away from Reigns, but Ambrose entered the ring and took advantage of a tired Rollins to cash in and win the title.

The moment was also historic in another way as all the three members of the defunct stable, which became a well-loved group by fans since entering the WWE main roster from NXT in 2012 before the creative team decided to give each member his singles limelight in 2014, had a hold of the title on the same match.

Meanwhile, AJ Styles defeated John Cena in an undercard match that ended up in an intriguing twist.

Supposed to be only a one-on-one match-up, Styles' The Club teammates, Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson, stepped into the ring with the referee knocked off, ganged up on Cena and helped Styles pin him before leaving the ring as soon as the referee got back.

Gallows and Anderson earlier lost in a fatal four-way match for the WWE Tag Team title, which was retained by New Day.

In the other championship match booked for the day, Rusev defended his United States title against Titus O'Neill.
