Trivia

During the Concrete Crypt match between The Undertaker and the Dudley Boyz, Paul Bearer was not actually in the crypt. WWE had recorded close-ups of Bearer inside the crypt 24 hours prior to the PPV. During the PPV, a stunt double was inside the crypt during the match, as only the home audience could see Bearer and the crypt he was in. Since he wasn't actually there, no-one else could be shown on screen with Bearer. See more »

Worst pay-per-view of 2004
6 July 2004 | by (gothenburg) – See all my reviews

Did they use the name Great American Bash just to embarrass the former WCW because they knew from the beginning how bad this show was going to be?

Match 1: Cena vs. Booker vs. RVD vs. Dupree. Fatal Four Way Elimination.

  • Why do they book a US Title match with four of the best wrestlers on


the roster in an opening match? And can anyone tell me why RVD and Booker T is put into this division? Booker is a five-time WCW Champion and RVD is five-time Intercontinental Champion so why would anyone care? RVD and Dupree are eliminated early and Cena then beats Booker cleanly to retain the title and make sure the burial of Booker continues. A good match for most part. Cena turns up the crowd as usual.

Match Rating: 3/5

Backstage Angle tells Charlie Haas that he is disappointed in him and that he will have to face Luther Reigns immediately.

Match 2: Luther Reigns vs. Charlie Haas

  • The crowd quickly dies for this. 'Boring' chants in the second match


isn't a good sign. Haas carries this match. Highlight: Reigns finisher Roll of the Dice.

Match Rating: 2/5

Match 3: Chavo vs. Rey Mysterio.

  • After giving the belt to a woman and an old man I guess there's


nothing left to do but to give it to the default cruiserweight; Rey Mysterio. Rey and Chavo are excellent wrestlers and work well together but the match could be even better; Chavo spends too much time working on Rey's ankle and Rey sells the injury so much he can hardly move. What the f*** is up with that booking? Nice reversals and a great finish. Rey keeps the title.

Match Rating: 3/5

Backstage Torrie, Noble, Kidman and Funaki argue about which one of them should be cruiserweight champ, or something... Terrible segment.

Match 4: Billy Gunn vs. Kenzo Suzuki.

  • Billy Gunn comes to the ring and maybe three people care. As for


Kenzo Suzuki, he is one of the the worst wrestlers I have ever been seen. He is weak, has zero in-ring skills, zero charisma and a worthless gimmick – there is a reason why gimmicks like these have failed in the past; nobody cares, plain and simple. What is even worse; it seems like they are actually going to push the guy. Hell, why not sign David Arquette as well? Match goes to a No Contest when everyone in the entire arena loses interest in what is going on.

Match Rating: 0/5

We see Paul Bearer and Heyman backstage.

Match 5: Torrie vs. Sable.

  • Awful match! I honestly can't find the words to describe how sad this


is. Torrie wrestling always equals extreme sloppiness. Torrie pins Sable despite Sable's right shoulder are nowhere near the mat. That was five minutes of my life I will never get back.

Match Rating: 0/5

Backstage Dawn Marie interviews Dupree but FBI interrupts. What the hell is FBI doing here? Another bad segment.

Match 6: Hardcore Holly vs. Mordecai.

  • If they want to get Suzuki and Mordecai over (IF being the key word


here) they shouldn't put them against Holly and Gunn. Mordecai beats Holly with the Crusifix Bomb and I did SO not need to see this match.

Match Rating: 1/5

Match 7: Bradshaw vs. Eddie Guerrero. Texas Bull Rope WWE Championship.

  • Someone in the crew is sleeping on his job. The lights are off when


they should be on and one light is consistently blinking. Anyway this is an unusual stipulation and a good exciting match. JBL hits a nice DDT and Eddie takes some hard bumps. Eddie seems to be the winner when he hits the final turnbuckle, but Angle comes out and reverses the decision. Replay shows that Bradshaw is the first to touch the last corner. I read in a review that the part where Angle used the instant replay sucked because it was cheap and it made the referee look incompetent. I agree 100%. As for JBL winning the title, I guess the bookers think that three face champions are too much. And Eddie is so over right now he doesn't need the title.

Match Rating: 3/5

Match 8: Undertaker vs. The Dudleys. Concrete Crypt Handicap.

  • Is THIS the main event??? Heyman interrupts the match several times


and bugs the living hell out of me with his ugly voice. Nothing worth mentioning here, which means it is a usual DUDley match. Undertaker does all the moves he gets pops for and nothing more and gets a clean win as usual. WWE shows how much the tag titles mean by booking the champions to lose a handicap match. I wasn't enjoyed by this match at all and I won't comment the post-match stuff because I really don't give a sh*t, but I can assure you that Paul Bearer won't be back in WWE.

Match Rating: 1/5

The Good: Rey/Chavo, but most of all the fact I watched it for free.

The Bad: This was the worst piece of horse-crap I've ever seen trying to pass itself off as a wrestling p.p.v. How can anyone book such half-assed sh*t? First we get some absolutely horrible backstage segments and awful promos for feuds that nobody cares for. Then we're treated to legends like Hardcore Holly, Billy Gunn and promising young talent like Kenzo Suzuki and Mordecai (who has already been sent back to OVW!). The booking of the card was stupid and so was the finish to the WWE Title match. Dreadful main event. Close to a 0/5 rating.

Great American Bash Rating: 1/5
