Coming live from the Arco Arena In Sacramento, California, WWE’s ‘The Bash’ is the new name for ‘The Great American Bash. This was the original name when produced under the professional wrestling promotions World Championship Wrestling (WCW) and Jim Crockett Promotions. The first The Great American Bash event was produced under the National Wrestling Alliance’s Jim Crockett Promotions and took place on July 6, 1985 at the American Legion Memorial Stadium in Charlotte, North Carolina.(Source: Wikipedia)

The event kicked off with the ECW championship scramble match, a concept that some still find confusing! Christian comes out as the champion defending against 4 other men in this all action opener to the show.

Edge is backstage with Teddy Long, trying to persuade him the only way the Rated R Superstar can, that he should make the World Heavyweight championship match a Triple Threat and include him!

Rey Mysterio Vs Chris Jericho is a feud that had been building up for a number of weeks, with Jericho trying to take Rey’s mask infront of all of his adoring fans!

Jericho and Long exchange heated words backstage after the match.

Dolph Zliggler vs The Great Khali is obviously some sort of punishment.. not for Dolph, for us watching it!

Vince McMahon greets Teddy backstage and says he was harsh putting Teddy on probation but Teddy has acomplished nothing in his long 5 year General Manager’s reign. I can think of worse GM’s!

The Unified Tag Team Championship match was The Colon’s Vs Priceless (Legacy or whatever they were called that week!) and Teddy Long came out to add Edge and Jericho to the match much to my sheer delight at the time! I remember practically levitating above my sofa in excitement! Awesome match but it makes me very sad for what could have been a truely classic tag team run! Fantatic to watch this again! Get well soon Edge PLEASE!!!

Randy Orton is backstage waiting for Priceless to come back after their match, he tells them not to worry about the match they just had as long as they help Randy keep his WWE championship title. The young Mr DiBiase isn’t happy!

Melina defends her Women’s championship next against Michaelle McCool. Melina has come a long way I like watching her and I think she’s a good Champ; McCool however.. just likes the right people.

Another classic encounter between CM Punk and Jeff Hardy for the World Heavyweight Championship. I never got tired of seeing these two face off in the ring, I thought they definatly brought out something good in each other and Im only sad it had to end! Hopefully they can resume their feud some day!

John Cena finally gets his hands on The Miz next, an ok sort of match but way too short and left me feeling slightly cheated of the payoff for this feud! The Miz is definatly growing on me and I have to say it.. Miz Is Awesome! (I am now truely out of the closet!)

Triple H Vs Randy Orton seemed like it would be a rehash of the last 50 times these two had wrestled. Unlike Austin/Rock they can’t carry it off over and over without getting boring and no, I don’t blame Randy! As it happens the match was pretty good and not as boring as I expected it to be. I remember NOT watching it when this pay per view was origionally aired, so I made the effort to watch it on the DVD instead and wasn’t too disapointed. The three stages of hell were reserved for the opponents and not the paying audience! They both worked very hard, although it did seem like they were maybe pushed for time somewhat they managed to pull off a good ‘Falls Count Anywhere’ match and a decent ‘Stretcher Match’ aswell. Worth watching again!

As for the “Special Feature’.. It involves Mark Henry so.. I refuse to comment on the grounds that it may incriminate me at a later date…
