I'd say Edge is an exception as his (first) cash in was not only the first, but he his character had the "ultimate opportunist" thing going on so it did make sense.
I could be wrong, but Edge was dubbed 'The ultimate opportunist' AFTER he cashed in his MitB, because everybody was expacting some promo where Edge wold call for a championship match like a week in advance, not right after the champ just had a match.
I originally thought this thread was going to be about how certain omg moment turned into boring redone every year crap. Like the ladder breaking, or someone falling from a twenty foot ladder to the outside of the ring etc.
