The Best Great American Bash In SmackDown History
D.P. | California | 10/07/2006
(4 out of 5 stars)
"My SmackDown steak continues as this was the best Great American Bash that WWE has pulled off yet. It's funny how RAW gets more effort put into it yet SmackDown has the events that are worth watching. The Great American Bash in the past two years of the WWE has usually been one of the worst (if not, the WORST) PPV of the year & it looked like the same way with alot of last minute changes (CARD IS SUBJECT TO CHANGE!) but it still came off good.
Tag Team Champions Paul London & Brian Kendrick vs. Kid Kash & Jamie Noble - Sorry but out of respect to the ORIGINAL PITBULLS (from ECW), I won't call Kash & Noble by that name. It's no secret that I'm a fan of crusierweight action & you got that here in the tag team division. Great opening match that was actually given time to turn into something good.
United States Champion Finlay vs. William Regal - Lashley couldn't wrestle due to health issues so it was just a singles match. This was unique in the fact that both guys were heels so the fans didn't know who to cheer at times and that these guys were just two straight up wrestlers so it was a good wrestling match. Finlay's "little [...]" got involved at times to keep the match humorous (Regal has priceless facial expressions) but overall, it was a good wrestling match.
Crusierweight Champion Gregory Helms vs. Matt Hardy - Hardy replaced Super Crazy who also had some health issues but again, it was a nice match. For those trivia buffs, Hardy & Helms grew up together & actually started wrestling together back in their OMEGA promotion along with Jeff Hardy & Shannon Moore. This was a case of both guys can wrestle & go in the ring when they are allowed to do so & it didn't disappoint here.
Punjabi Prision Match: Undertaker vs. Big Show - Talk about a bait & switch because eventhough it leaked out on the internet for a week that Khali couldn't wrestle due to health issues, they kept advertising Khali before the ring entrances when Big Show took his place. The prision was created out of bamboo & looked similar to the "Kennell From Hell" (Hell In A Cell & a steel cage match in one). The match rules were a unique concept in which that you had 60 sec. to escape through a trap door in the first cage that had spikes at the top of it and then escape the second cage to win the match. Undertaker & Show did their best & it was better than the original "Kennel From Hell" match with Al Snow & Bossman but still, we've seen better performances from these two.
Four Way Bra & Panties Match: Ashley vs. Krystal vs. Michelle McCool vs. Jillian Hall - It's a bra & panties match...what can be said that hasn't been said already about bra & panties matches for the last 5 years.
Batista vs. Mr. Kennedy...Kennedy (sorry, just had to do that) - It was suppost to be Mark Henry but he got injured (surprize surprize!!!) so Mr. Kennedy stepped in at the last minute but he was nothing more than a body for Batista to completely massacre. Kennedy got a few shots in but the match was all Batista & he ended up getting disqualifed but Kennedy was the ultimate loser as his head was just absoluely bloody.
World (Heavyweight) Champion Rey Mysterio vs. King Booker - The match was actually really good but it was nothing more than a setup for the heavily teased (and predictable) heel turn of Chavo Guerrero on Rey Mysterio. Booker became the most deserving World Champion in WWE since Chris Benoit.
DVD extras included a Paul Heyman talking to Big Show after the match & King Booker's celebration on SmackDown followed by his match with Rey Mysterio on SmackDown which was very similar to their Bash match with the same ending of Chavo Guerrero costing Mysterio the match.
Again, third time is the charm as this was the best Great American Bash that WWE has put on. I recommend."

"Pitbulls vs. London & Kendrick
A very good tag match that was high flying and didn't contain too many of the regular tag match clichés.
Finlay vs. Regal
This match wasn't as good as I hoped it would be as nothing much really happened in its 11 minutes. Not bad at all just a bit boring for my liking.
Hardy vs. Helms
This was a good match. I don't know why the cruiserweight title wasn't on the line considering weight obviously doesn't matter with titles in WWE. It had good back and forth action and was won at the 12 minute mark via a roll up by Helms (with the tights).
Undertaker vs. Big Show
This match really was going to be unpredictable. I am pleased to say that it definitely wasn't as bad as it could have been but it also wasn't as good as it could have been. Big Show wrestling instead of Khali was a good thing and the match was indeed more than watchable because of it. It was given a lot of time (21 minutes) but unfortunately so much more could have happened in that time. There were no submission holds or any of the Undertaker's moves from his arsenal. I liked the way the "prison" was incorporated into the match thus making this match a breath of fresh air. Good to see the Deadman win creatively before Khali could screw him. Not HIAC material, but much better than a singles match would have potentially been.
Bra & Panties Match
Nothing special. Quite crap in fact.
Batista vs. Kennedy
A very intense match. This was going very nicely but the disqualification ending left a lot to be desired match quality-wise. A nice flurry of rage after the match from Batista though.
Booker vs. Rey
I was expecting a lot more from this match. This wasn't too different from their foolish decision of a Smackdown match. The ending came from one hell of a chair shot by Chavo and it looks like they are going to feud again. I don't know if giving Booker the title is a wise choice but its sad to see the title off Rey again.
536/700 = 77%
Overall Impression = 73%
75% - Pretty good matches on this PPV but nothing great enough to get a 90%. The overall impression was affected slightly by the slightly disappointing Booker title victory. Still a strong PPV that was much better (8% on my ratings) than last years and will be remembered for the Prison Match.
SHOULD BE BETTER THAN LAST YEARS

LONDNON AND KENDRICK(CHAMPIONS) VS THE PITTBULLS

PUNJABI PRISON MATCH
THE UNDERTAKER VS THE GREAT KHALII
THINK THEY WILL BE LOCKED IN A CAGE BUT IT WILL BE BIGGER THAN THE NORMAL CAGE. THERE WILL BE NO DQ AND THERE WILL BE BARBED WIRE ON THE UPPER RIM OF THE CAGE. IT WILL BE MADE OUT OF IRON BARS AND THERE WILL BE WEPONS LIKE SCREW DRIVER AND HAMMERS HANING FROM THE CAGE AND THER WILL BE MORE WEAPONS HANGING FROM THE CAGE. I THINK TO WIN THE MATCH YOU HAVE TO PUT YOUR OPENNET IN A BODY BAG. I HOPES ITS VIOLENT AND BLOODY. I PREDICT THAT THI MATCH WILL BE REALLY VIOLENT AND JUST WHEN UNDERTAKER HAS THE MATCH WON BIG SHOW WILL COME OUT AND KHALI AND BIG SHOW WILL BEAT UP THE UNDERTAKER. JUST WHEN THEY ARE ABOUT TO DO A DOUBLE CHOKESLAM THE LIGHTS GO OUT. THEN KANES MUSIC PLAYS AND THE FIRE COMES OUT OF THE ENTRANCE WAY LIKE IT USALLY DOSE WHEN HE COMES OUT. AND THEN KANE WALKS DOWN TO THE RING AND PAUL BEARER IS WITH HIM!!!!!!!!!!! KHALI AND BIG SHOW STNAD THER LOOKING AT KANE BUT SUNDDLEY UNDERTAKER SITS UP KANE RUNS TO THE RING AND AND ALL 4 WRESTLERS GET IN A FIGHT!!!!!! FIRST UNDERTAKER AND KNAE DOUBLE CHOKESLAM BIG SHOW. THEN THEY DOUBLE CHOKESLAM KHALI AND UNDERAKER PUTS KHALI IN THE BODY BAG AND IS UNDERTAKER HE IS THE WINNER. I ALSO PREDICT THAT KANE WILL MOVE TO SMACKDOWN AND KANE,UNDERTAKER,AND PAUL BEAERE WILL BECOME A STABLE.
