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.”

Forbes.com: Edge And Christian Think ‘Broken’ Matt Hardy Would Work In WWE, Talk Paige

One of the true signs of a legendary career is one where the legend in question is at peace. This demonstrates both fulfillment and accomplishment, which describes the careers of childhood friends and former WWE Superstars Edge and Christian.

Each had wildly successful runs both as singles and tag team performers, and neither have any desire to get back in the ring even as a stadium filled with over 80,000 screaming fans awaits at WrestleMania 33. I spoke with the entertaining duo as they prepared to release the first episode of their podcast, E&C’s Pod Of Awesomeness, which will feature WWE universal champion Goldberg as its first guest.

“We want it to be very fan-interactive. We’re going to have a voicemail where you can leave ideas or just rambling whatever and we play it on the air,” said Edge.

“We don’t take ourselves too seriously, so it leaves a lot of room to just have fun with stuff, so hence you get the TV show on the [WWE] Network and I’d like to think, in terms of a podcast, we’ll try to bring the same thing.”

Christian followed up, saying “we want to talk about everything. We’re both fathers and we want to talk about that. [Edge] is big into music…we both like all types of different types of sports and we can actually formulate a sentence or two, so good for us.”
