Sheamus, the gigantic Irish wrestler kicking ass in the WWE, won the Money in the Bank ladder match, where seven competitors fight to collect a brief case that guarantees them a Heavyweight title shot at any time over the next year.

Sheamus outlasted Roman Reigns, Dolph Ziggler, Neville, Randy Orton, Kofi Kingston and Kane to reach the top of the ladder and we are looking forward to him performing the Brogue Kick on champion Seth Rollins in the next year.
