Cameron Grimes and LA Knight took each other to hell and back. They used the ladder as a weapon several times. The finish of the match saw Cameron Grimes come extremely close to unhooking the title. However, LA Knight tipped the ladder sending Cameron Grimes through the bridging ladder.

LA Knight then climbed the golden ladder and claimed the glass case that contained the Million Dollar Championship.

He is now only the sixth WWE Superstar to hold the Million Dollar Title in history. DiBiase and Virgil held the title before it was deactivated in 1992. It was brought back for Stone Cold Steve Austin who held the belt as The Ringmaster from December 1995 – May 1996. Ted DiBiase Jr. also  held the title for a few months in 2010, but it was deactivated again until tonight.

It will be interesting to see how the title is treated in NXT and what is in store for it in the future. Only time will tell.
