Baron Corbin Loses Title Match After Cashing In MITB Briefcase

Aug 15, 2017 - by Bill Fenbers

At the end of tonight’s SmackDown Live, Baron Corbin cashed in his Money In the Bank briefcase for a WWE Championship match.  However, due to a distraction from John Cena, Corbin would lose via pinfall to champion Jinder Mahal on a roll-up.  Corbin joins Damien Sandow on the list of MITB winners, to NOT win the WWE Championship or the now-retired World Heavyweight Championship, after cashing in their briefcase.

Damien Sandow cashed in his Money In The Bank briefcase for a WWE Championship match against John Cena on the 10/28/2013 Monday Night RAW, but lost the match.  Cena himself cashed in HIS Money In The Bank briefcase on RAW 1000 on 7/23/2012;  he defeated WWE Champion CM Punk via disqualification but didn’t win the title, as titles can’t change hands on a disqualification unless match stipulation says otherwise.
