When the bell rang, Omos got control of the match. The Nigerian Giant started hitting everyone with a ladder. Moreover, Omos perfectly landed on his feet when he got shoved off the ladder from three feet above. However, the 7.3ft superstar was claymored outside the ring by Drew McIntyre.

Sami Zayn had the funniest parts of the match as he hid behind the ring-post while Omos was smashing everyone with the ladder. He tried to sneak himself multiple times to climb the ladder and grab the briefcase.

The time stood still for Theory when McIntyre and Sheamus caught him climbing the ladder while they were brawling. However, the former best friends gave the Vince McMahon‘s protégé a proper beat down for sneaking. Matt Riddle did a backflip from the top of the ladder on McIntyre, Moss, Rollins, and Sheamus.

The WWE Universe saw superstars putting Omos through the announce table. Pat McAfee, in his way of commentary, called this moment ‘The Flying Giant’. Two more highlights of the match were McIntyre bench pressing the ladder with Sheamus on top and Riddle connecting an RKO to Rollins from the top of the ladder.

The match had major spots, which made the crowd go wild. However, in the end, Riddle was all alone to grab the briefcase, but Theory showed up and climbed the ladder. He knocked Riddle and grabbed the briefcase, announcing himself as the 2022 Men’s Money in the Bank Winner.
