When someone says "sus promesas cayeron en papel mojado". That means that he did not carry out their promises.
"Papel mojado" is something that it isn't useful. For examples: his promises are not useful because he did not carry out them.
It is very similar to: saco roto. "Todo cayó en saco roto".
You are saying that everything was useless.
