2012 Money in the Bank Results Recaps:

The pre-show opened with a look at fans lined up inside the arena.  Matt Striker and Scott Stanford opened on commentary and ran down the card for tonight's PPV.

They had a backstage segment with Zack Ryder wishing Santino Marella good luck in the MITB ladder match.  Santino showed Ryder how he had a miniature blue briefcase made for the Cobra to carry around.  Damien Sandow showed up to talk about the "mental mediocrity" of these two guys.  Ryder dissed Sandow for being lame and having a bad beard.  Sandow told Ryder he can thank him for having the night off since he beat him in the MITB qualifying match.  Santino intervened to get Ryder out of there before a fight.

Hunico & Camacho vs. R-Truth & Kofi Kingston
WWE Tag Team Championship Match

This match was a free live streaming online match as part of the 7:30PM EST pre-show from WWE.  Kofi and Truth came out to the ring first, followed by Hunico and Camacho.  Hunico rode on the bicycle and had a mic, speaking mainly in Spanish, as they rode to the ring.

Kofi and Truth gained the early advantage as they did several double team moves on Hunico, and kept him isolated from the tag, while Camacho stayed on the apron.  Camacho eventually got into the action to help out Hunico, then tagged in to take control of Truth.

Kofi eventually made a hot tag after Truth landed a leg to Hunico's head.  Kofi hit the Boom Boom Drop then revved up for Trouble in Paradise.  Hunico got up and Kofi went for it but Hunico ducked the move to take control.  He tossed Kofi out of the ring and Camacho looked like he was ready to attack.  Kofi prepared for a springboard move, but Camacho grabbed the ropes to cause him to fall.

After Hunico had the advantage, Kofi eventually made the escape to bring in Truth.  Truth had a near fall but Camacho and Hunico were both in the ring, and the pin was broken up.  Truth grabbed Hunico and tossed him towards Kofi in the corner, with Kingston connecting on Trouble in Paradise.  Moments later, Camacho tried to grab Truth to hit a move for the win.  Instead, Kofi Kingston intervened and then shoved Camacho towards Truth.  Truth hit his finishing move, the Little Jimmy to plant Camacho face first into the mat for the winning pin.

Winners: R-Truth and Kofi Kingston defeated Hunico and Camacho by pinfall to retain the WWE Tag Team Championships.

Josh Matthews talked to Chris Jericho backstage, who said his strategy tonight is simply to win.  He alludes to his tough opponents Kane, Cena and Show.  Jericho said he's never won MITB, but that changes tonight and he'll be referred to as "Greatest of All-Time."

Josh Matthews spoke to Daniel Bryan backstage about the AJ marriage proposal.  Bryan said AJ isn't his ex-girlfriend, but his future wife.  He calls her an honest and caring woman.  He said tonight he'll emerge with the WWE title and AJ's heart.

Daniel Bryan vs. CM Punk

WWE Championship Match

WWE Diva AJ will serve as the special guest referee for this match.  The match received a new stipulation that it was a no disqualification match.  Therefore all sorts of weapons were used by both men including steel chairs and kendo sticks.  AJ helped (and didn't help) by screwing with both guys by stepping on a kendo stick when they went to use it, or standing in front of Bryan when Punk went to attack him.

Late in the match, CM Punk brought a table into the ring, then put Bryan on top of it.  Bryan rolls off the table before Punk goes for a jump from the top rope.  Bryan starts to battle, punching and kicking Punk in the face.  The two end up fighting on the corner turnbuckle, with Punk ultimately hitting a huge backdrop from the top rope to smash Bryan through the table.  Punk makes the cover and AJ counts the pinfall.

Post-match, AJ gets the WWE title belt and gives it to Punk who goes and celebrates in the corner.  AJ seems confused and upset over it.  AJ continues watching Punk celebrate, as Bryan is knocked out on the smashed table.

Winner: CM Punk wins via pinfall over Daniel Bryan to retain the WWE Championship.

Ryback vs. Reks and Hawkins

However, despite their attempts at doubleteaming the undefeated Ryback, he made a comeback. Ryback hit a huge slam move on Hawkins, then ran over Reks when he tagged in. Ryback eventually threw Hawkins to the outside floor, then hit a huge clothesline on Reks. He follows with his finisher, Shell Shocked, to get the big win.

MITB Match for a WWE Championship Contract

Competing in this match are John Cena, Big Show, Chris Jericho and Kane. The winner is the first one to retrieve the briefcase hanging above the ring which contains a contract for a future WWE Championship match.

There was a surprise entrant as The Miz showed up as the fifth competitor in this matchup.  Late in the match, Cena was up top of a strong, reinforced ladder that Big Show had brought in for himself.  Chris Jericho had a sleeper locked on Cena nearly making him pass out at the top of the ladder.  Jericho had to battle with Miz though and ultimately Cena fell to the mat.  Jericho knocked Miz away and made his attempt to climb for the case, but Big Show was back in.

The grand finale saw Big Show knock both Jericho and Miz off the ladder, looking like he would yank down the briefcase.  However, Cena managed to rush up the other side of the ladder and used the hanging briefcase to bash against Big Show as a weapon.  He ultimately grabbed the case and used it to knock Show off the ladder, winning the match, and the championship contract.

The close saw Cena celebrating as the MITB winner.

Winner: John Cena wins the MITB ladder match to earn a WWE Championship match contract.
