# 22 on their list Dean Ambrose vs. Kevin Owens vs. Chris Jericho vs. Cesaro vs. Sami Zayn vs. Alberto Del Rio — Money in the Bank Ladder Match (Money in the Bank)

WE SAID: If there is such a thing as a glass ceiling, Dean Ambrose had been slamming his head against it for a solid year leading up to this star-making match for The Lunatic Fringe. But to only highlight Ambrose’s ultimate Money in the Bank victory — and subsequent cash-in — would do a disservice to the magnificent performances of Kevin Owens, Chris Jericho, Cesaro, Sami Zayn and Alberto Del Rio, all of whom laid their bodies on the line in the most inventive fashion possible to reach the proverbial next rung. Ambrose’s victory was sweet, to be sure, but anybody here would have been a worthy champion-in-waiting. To quote one of the participants: Drink it in, man. — ANTHONY BENIGNO

THEY SAID: “I hate Ladder Matches. If I’m never in another Ladder Match again for the rest of my life, I’ll be happy. But on that night I had a job to do. Had to get up that ladder, get that briefcase. The way I figure it, every time we step in the ring, it’s some kind of gamble. So if you’re gonna roll the dice with your body and your safety, you might as well go all in and go for the big money all in one night in Las Vegas.” — DEAN AMBROSE

# 16 The Miz vs. Sami Zayn vs. Cesaro vs. Kevin Owens — Fatal 4-Way Intercontinental Championship Match (Extreme Rules)

The Fatal 4-Way Match at Extreme Rules 2016 did not just put Cesaro, Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens in contention for The Miz’s Intercontinental Title. It also put a quartet in the same ring after weeks of meddling in each other’s business, capping a rivalry which had been boiling over since Owens and Zayn inserted themselves into a WWE Payback 2016 battle between The Miz and Cesaro. This foursome wanted to humble and humiliate each other at Extreme Rules as much as they wanted to leave as Intercontinental Champion. They blitzed each other with clotheslines, European uppercuts and Blue Thunder Bombs. They broke up nearly every pinfall attempt, brawled all over ringside. In the end, The Miz somehow escaped with his coveted title in as dramatic a Fatal 4-Way Match as any you’ll ever see. — MATTHEW ARTUS
