Eventually, the rest of the New Day came out from backstage and the trio hugged in the middle of the ring, making it an emotional moment, just like they did when Kofi Kingston won the Championship.

‘The Powerhouse of Positivity’ became the second person in WWE history to announce when he’ll cash in the Money in the Bank briefcase after announcing the date and time to his opponent.

Before Big E, hardcore legend Rob Van Dam aka RVD grabbed the title after announcing when he’d cash in.
