The Money in the Bank ladder match (sometimes abbreviated as MITB) is a ladder match held by the Caw wrestling promotion SCAW. At first contested at SCAW E-Extravaganza from 2008 to 2013, it is now contested at SCAW Blood, Sweat & Tears starting at 2015. The prize in the match is a briefcase containing a contract for an SCAW Championship match, which can be "cashed in" by the holder of the briefcase at any point in the year following his victory.
The Money in the Bank ladder match features 6 participants, with the objective being to retrieve a briefcase that is suspended 20 feet above the ring. The briefcase contains a contract that guarantees a match for the SCAW Championship. The primary gimmick of the Money in the Bank (or MitB, for short) briefcase is that it can be cashed in at the holder's sole discretion, at literally any time on any SCAW programming. This enables the holder to take advantage of a moment's weakness in the champion, even if the Champion had just finished a title defense for the night.
The contract is valid for one year and the briefcase holder – dubbed "Mr. Money in the Bank" – can cash in the contract at the date, place, and time of their choosing. The briefcase may also be defended in matches, similar to how championships are defended. All of the briefcase holders have successfully cashed in the contract except Captain America.
Captain America won the first Money in the Bank at E-Extravaganza 2008. He lost his shot to Mr. Clean at Day of Destiny 2008. Mr. Clean then gave the MITB to Spider-Man who used it to defeat Guile at Spring Showdown 2008 for the SCAW Championship.
Ichigo Kurosaki won MITB at E-Extravaganza 2009. He tried and failed to cash in on Homer Simpson at Superstar Sunday. George W. Bush (the then-new SCAW president) gave Ichigo another MITB shot at Ascendance 2009 against Inuyasha who had just won the title in an Elimination Chamber match.
The Green Lantern won MITB at E-Extravaganza 2010. He then confronted the champion Iron Man at No Guts No Glory 2010 and told him straight up that he will cash in at the Three Year SCAW Anniversary. He did just that at the event. He beat Iron Man again in their rematch main event.
