Baron Corbin's Money in the Bank briefcase won't be in play at SummerSlam after all.

Corbin closed tonight's episode of SmackDown by unsuccessfully cashing in his title shot against Jinder Mahal. The failed cash-in came after Mahal faced John Cena in the main event, with Corbin causing a disqualification as Cena had the match won following an Attitude Adjustment off the second rope.

He hit Cena with the briefcase and began to walk away before turning his attention to a prone Mahal. He cashed in the contract, but Mahal pinned him with a schoolboy to retain after Corbin was briefly distracted by punching Cena off of the apron.

Mahal will defend his WWE Championship against Shinsuke Nakamura at SummerSlam on Sunday, with Corbin also set to face Cena at the pay-per-view.

Cena and Damien Sandow are the only other wrestlers to have cashed in a Money in the Bank briefcase and not won the title.

Corbin won the title shot in the main event of June's Money in the Bank PPV. Though he lost to Mahal tonight, another storyline of a looming cash-in heading into SummerSlam remains as Carmella still holds her briefcase.
