Okay Show, but done with little effort
4 January 2009 | by jts0405See all my reviews

Great American Bash 2008 was held on July 20, 2008 in Uniondale, New York. It really showed that there was little effort put behind creating this event.

Match 1: The Miz & John Morrison (c) vs Jesse & Festus vs Curt Hawkins & Zack Ryder vs Finlay & Hornswoggle in a Fatal Four Way match for the WWE Tag Team Championship - This made for a decent opener at a pay per view such as this one. The Miz & John Morrison are a good tag team, but this WWE Tag Team title reign has gone on long enough. I was hoping that Jesse & Festus or Curt Hawkins & Zack Ryder would take the gold in this one. In the end Hawkins pulls Jesse off the top rope for the win. Hawkins & Ryder start their first run as Tag Champions, ending a long 250 day reign of Miz & Morrison in the process.

Match 2: Matt Hardy (c) vs Shelton Benjamin for the United States Championship - Something seemed off with Matt Hardy during this one. He seemed to be walking on his toes the entire match almost like he was injured. This wasn't built to be exciting because it was announced before the event began just so they could have enough matches. We all were expecting Hardy to retain, but Benjamin moves out of the way from his signature legdrop off the top. Benjamin retaliates by hitting the paydirt to claim the United States Championship. Average, yet sort of dull match that could have been better.

Match 3: Mark Henry (c) vs Tommy Dreamer for the ECW Championship - I really like Tommy Dreamer, but hate to see him used as a jobber like he currently is. Everyone expected Henry to retain because he just won the title a month before. This was a dull, lousy match with no entertainment involved. Dreamer begins to get the upper hand, but Colin Delaney all of a sudden jumps ships and turns on Dreamer. Henry ends up picking up on were Delaney left off and hits his World's Strongest Slam for the win. Nobody cares about Colin's heel turn, nobody cared about him in first place.

Match 4: Chris Jericho vs Shawn Michaels - This really was the first excellent match of the night. Michaels sold the injury well in this one. He kept favoring his eye, but still fought back at the right time. Jericho busts Michaels open after nailing him repeatedly in the eye. In the end the referee stops the match and hands Chris Jericho the win. With this win Jericho seems thrilled, but continues to pummel Michaels. A great match once again from both men. I enjoyed this out of all the previous matches.

Match 5: Michelle McCool vs Natalya to crown the first Diva's Champion - SmackDown has a Diva division no better than Raw does. These two pulled a stiff womens match that just could have been done on a SmackDown instead of a pay per view. McCool beats Natalya to be crowned the first champion. Jericho comes out while McCool celebrates just to inform us that Shawn Michaels will never wrestle again (yeah right).

Match 6: CM Punk (c) vs Batista for the World Heavyweight Championship - These two didn't get the right amount of time to really build up the excitement for their battle at the Bash. They carried a decent, but not memorable match at best. They both give a great battle for the title, but in the end Kane attacks both men resulting the match in a no contest. Kane keeps asking us 'Is he dead or is he alive'. Punk still is champion after a nice match.

Match 7: John Cena vs JBL in a New York City Parking Lot Brawl - A fantastic hardcore battle. Cena and JBL do some things that make your jaw drop. After scoring two wins at Judgment Day and One Night Stand Cena finally drops to JBL in this memorable match when JBL slams him onto the hood of a car for the pinfall.

Match 8: Triple H (c) vs Edge for the WWE Championship - Both of these men didn't begin to feud until the last week before this show. Triple H gets under Edge's skin and makes his wife Vickie Guerrero resent him. These two have an epic battle for the WWE Championship. One of the better matches of the night. Triple H really uses the cheating against Edge, when his wedding planner and his wife both interrupt causing Tripe H to retain.
