CM Punk is a history maker for many reasons. When it comes to Money in the Bank matches, he's the only man that he can say that he's won two of them in back to back years.
The first Money in the Bank win happened at WrestleMania XXIV when Punk defeated six other men to capture the coveted briefcase. I didn't expect Punk to win it that year. I thought it was going to be somebody like Chris Jericho or MVP.
Punk was still a part of the ECW brand, which was clearly number three on the brand totem pole, so when he was able to capture the briefcase by battling Jericho at the top I was genuinely surprised by it.
The second Money in the Bank win happened at WrestleMania XXV when Punk defeated seven other men to win the briefcase for the second year in a row. Once again, I didn't expect Punk to win the briefcase this time because he had won it the year before and it was rare to see somebody do it two years in a row.
Like most others that have won the Money in the Bank briefcase, Punk went on to win a major championship a few weeks later.
