WWE.com: The 33 Best WrestleMania Matches Of All Time

#32. Money in the Bank Ladder Match (WrestleMania 21)

Location: Los Angeles
Date: April 3, 2005
Time: 20:08

Why it’s great: These days, the Money in the Bank Ladder Match is an institution. At WrestleMania 21, it was a demolition derby experiment, one that included a flying Shelton Benjamin and concluded with Edge claiming the first-ever Money in the Bank contract.

Jericho invented that: According to Chris Jericho’s book “Undisputed,” the original concept for this match was a “Hollywood Dream Ladder Match” where the winner would have any wish fulfilled. When that idea was nixed, Jericho himself came up with the first iteration of the contract as it exists today.

WWE.com: Edge & Christian Launch Podcast With Universal Champion Goldberg As Their First Guest

E&C’s Pod of Awesomeness launched its inaugural episode in the wee hours of the morning, and to ensure that Edge & Christian’s maiden voyage on the podcast sea was, well, awesome, the duo wrangled WCW icon and reigning Universal Champion Goldberg as its first guest.

“I mean, obviously, there’s no one hotter at the moment,” Christian told WWE.com. “Goldberg’s come back after being away for so many years and kind of taken the company by storm again. He’s Universal Champion, and he’s ended all of his matches quickly and emphatically. It’s cool that he’s brought that intensity back and hasn’t lost a step. He’s not getting paid by the hour — he’s getting in, he’s getting out.”

Christian is, of course, well-acquainted with that Goldberg intensity, having battled the behemoth 14 years ago during his initial WWE run.

“We’ve crossed paths here and there very briefly, but this was the first time I’d had a real conversation with him … and probably one of the only times I’d talked to him since he almost Speared my spine out of my body, which people still send to me to this day as a Twitter GIF,” Captain Charisma said with a laugh. “We also talked about that — he gets that GIF sent to him a lot, too.”

Fortunately for the podcast-listening world, Christian and his longtime friend and tag team partner — another master of the Spear — could put aside that past unpleasantness to pick Goldberg’s brain before his anticipated Universal Championship title defense against Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania, The Ultimate Thrill Ride.

“It was nice to catch up with him, get some insight into how his body is feeling now that he’s a little bit older, what it’s been like after his comeback and how he’s been navigating the waters after being away for so long,” Christian said. “Brock is an animal, but to have somebody that can match him size-wise, strength-wise and explosiveness-wise is a pretty big thing. It’s gonna be interesting. And hearing how amped up and pumped up and how seriously he’s taking it, I’m looking forward to a great show. Not just their match, but overall. I think WrestleMania is going to deliver like it always does.”

WWE.com: Edge & Christian Reveal Launch Of Their New Podcast

Their iconic “Five-Second Pose” isn’t exactly suited for audio, but rest assured, Edge & Christian will have plenty of irreverent lunacy in their arsenal when they launch E&C’s Pod of Awesomeness on Friday, March 24.

After teasing a new collaboration earlier this week, The Rated-R Superstar and Captain Charisma broke the news on Twitter.

Given the insanity the seven-time World Tag Team Champions brought to the first season of “The Edge & Christian Show That Totally Reeks of Awesomeness” — available on-demand exclusively on WWE Network — Edgeheads and Peeps alike won’t want to miss any of the iconic tandem’s weekly auditory insanity.

WWE.com: The Top 25 Summerslam Matches Of All Time, Ranked

#5. Edge & Christian vs. The Dudley Boyz vs. The Hardy Boyz — World Tag Team Championship Tables, Ladders and Chairs Match (2000)

SummerSlam has always been groundbreaking, but its most original match may have been the very first TLC bout in 2000, which blended Edge & Christian’s chair assaults, The Dudley Boyz’s table onslaught and The Hardys’ high-flying ladder excellence into a whirlwind of fast-paced hysteria.

The three-way bedlam that followed proved to be the ultimate thrill ride that did much more than allow Edge & Christian to retain their World Tag Team Championship gold. It would serve as the benchmark for one of the squared circle’s most unique specialty matches in countless contests to come – and a WWE institution that would one day become the namesake for a pay-per-view. — MICHAEL BURDICK




WWE.com: The 10 Best Matches To Not Make ‘WWE: 100 Greatest Matches’

Edge & Christian vs. The Hardy Boyz vs. The Dudley Boyz — World Tag Team Championship Tables, Ladders and Chairs Match (SummerSlam 2000)

The very first Tables, Ladders and Chairs Match at SummerSlam 2000 set the standard for every TLC Match to live up to. Hearts just about stopped when Edge & Christian sent a ladder-climbing Bubba Ray Dudley crashing through a stack of tables outside the ring. Millions cried in agony when Edge Speared an interfering Lita. And when E&C finally felled a dangling Jeff Hardy with a ladder to retrieve the titles, standing ovations mingled with sighs of relief. As for the WrestleMania X-Seven follow-up? No doubt it deserves a page in “WWE: 100 Greatest Matches,” but that match doesn’t happen without a precedent to surpass. — KEVIN POWERS




WWE.com: 25 Greatest Matches In WrestleMania History

#22. Money in the Bank Ladder Match — WrestleMania 21

Ladder Matches on The Grandest Stage of Them All tend to be great — no surprise there’s a bevy of them on this list — so the inaugural Money in the Bank Ladder Match, with its novel, game changing stipulation and can’t miss lineup of topflight athletes, Evel Knievels and a real-life monster, was bound to be excellent.

The second bout at WrestleMania 21 played out like a Michael Bay trailer with exploding robots replaced by guys like Christian and Kane. Fifteen minutes of gratuitous carnage led to Edge coming out on top — setting in motion what would become a defining run as a villain — but it was Shelton Benjamin who stole the show (and defied physics) by running up a diagonal ladder to deliver a diving clothesline to Jericho. This was the sports-entertainment equivalent of a Hollywood summer blockbuster. No wonder it spawned so many sequels. — RYAN MURPHY

WWE.com: The New Day Courts Controversy On ‘The Cutting Edge Peep Show’

Live Event Digitals > WWE Fastlane 2016
Screen Captures > WWE Fastlane 2016

CLEVELAND – Hilarity and hostility were on full display when The New Day joined Edge and Christian on the set of “The Cutting Edge Peep Show” during WWE Fastlane 2016. The two groups traded pointed barbs and amusing insults until Big E, Kofi Kingston and Xavier Woods veered into putting down The League of Nations, which prompted the four Superstars to emerge from backstage.

A couple of the more memorable taunts during the show included Big E proclaiming “Out with the old, that’s you [Edge and Christian], and in with The New Day” as well as The Rated-R Superstar telling the reigning WWE Tag Team Champions he had “never seen so much chocolate act so vanilla.”

After several minutes of the verbal smackdown, The League of Nations joined the fray. With all nine men in the ring, tempers began to boil over until both The New Day and Edge and Christian eventually exited up the ramp, where both groups lobbed a few choice put-downs at, in the words of Edge, “The International House of Dumbasses.” The insults may be over, but the animosity between New Day and The League of Nations is certainly no laughing matter.
