Shelton Benjamin Reveals Who Came Up With Money In The Bank Spots

Despite never emerging victorious in a Money in the Bank Ladder match, Shelton Benjamin was once synonymous with the match.

Benjamin participated in several of the contests, often performing awe-inspiring moves that would end up being the highlight of the match. When speaking to Sean Waltman on a recent episode of X-Pac 12360, Shelton opened up about who came up with the spots for him to do.

That was completely accidental. The first year I was the new guy, everyone else pretty established. When we finally put the match together I didn't know how anything would go. I was actually late to the meeting because I was doing the video game tournament. So, when the tournament was over, I had to go meet with all the guys.By the time I got there, they had all these ideas and it was all back to back. Edge and Chris Jericho would come up to me and say "Hey Shelton if I hold a ladder like this could you do this?" I go.....yeah. "Like you sure?" ...yeah. "Can you show me?" Nailed it no problem. Edge comes up and says "Hey Shelton if you do this, can I do this?" It was them going back and forth. They (Edge & Chris Jericho) were thinking of the craziest ideas & I was just going....yeah

Benjamin would end up competing in five Money in the Bank Ladder matches in his career before being released by WWE in 2010.
