Great American Bash was similar to Vengeance, in other words some matches were good and others were damn right bad.
The Hardyz were super over in their matches with MVP and Umaga respectively and their matches were good, but both Hardyz lost which was disappointing. The Singapore Cain on a pole match was crap, as much as I like Sandman, Carlito deserved better, and the Cain didn't not come into play once. The triple threat match between Batista, Kane and Khali was bad, worse than that Khali used Kane's finisher which I thought was odd and when Kane and Batista choke slammed Khali on the announcers desk, it looked pathetic. The bull rope match between Randy Orton and Dusty Rhodes was rubbish, Rhodes looked 2 decades older than he actually is and the finish (Orton hit Rhodes with the Cow Bell, was an insult to the ticket buying fans). The Cruiserweight match which featured 5 performers was a joke, at the end Hornswoggle pinned Jamie Noble to become the Cruiserweight champion. Yes! Hornswoggle who didn't even participate in the match, was selected by WWE to become the next champion! The PPV had it's bright points though. The John Cena vs Bobby Lashley match was very good which was surprising, MVP and the Matt Hardy match was decent and the Jeff Hardy and Umaga match was very good.
Results from the show: MVP downed Matt Hardy in a decent effort to retain the US title. Carlito beat the Sandman in a p*ss poor Singapore Cain on a pole match. Candice Michelle beat Melina in a passable match to retain the Women's title. Hornswoggle won the Cruiserweight Championship in a pathetic match. Umaga downed Jeff Hardy in a good match. John Morrison downed CM Punk to retain the ECW championship in a decent match. Randy Orton defeated Dusty Rhodes in a crap bull rope match. The Great Khali defeated Batista and Kane to retain the World title (Khali held the belt upside down during his entrance, what a buffoon!). John Cena downed Bobby Lashley in an exciting match to retain the WWE Championship.
