The final two spots in the Money in the Bank ladder match for the WWE world heavyweight championship were determined on tonight's episode of Monday Night Raw in Cleveland, Ohio. One slot would be determined in a Stretch match between Kane and John Cena (results for that when they come in) while the other would be a battle royal.

Well, the battle royal is over and Roman Reigns is your winner.

He wasn't even supposed to be in the match, what with The Authority barring him from it in the opening segment of the show. But he proved to have brains as much as brawn and spiked Stephanie McMahon's coffee, getting her so sick she had to be rushed to the hospital by Triple H. Vickie Guerrero was left in charge and after some sweet talking, she inserted Reigns in the match.

Well, he tore ass through it just like he did at the Royal Rumble, last eliminating Rusev after a short but electric one-on-one showdown that he finished with a Superman punch while Rusev was on the apron.

Here's the updated list of participants in the title match:

- Sheamus
- Alberto Del Rio
- Bray Wyatt
- Cesaro
- Randy Orton
- Roman Reigns

And here's the updated Money in the Bank match card and line-up:
