They have the exact same set as last year.

Paul London & Brian Kendrick d. The Pitbulls to retain the WWE Tag Team Titles (14:00). Very good match. Crowd was a little quiet early, but got into it. Kash was going for his brainbuster on London, and Kendrick hit a top-rope sunset flip, and London assisted with his drop-sault, for the win.

Khali was in the back, and wanted to call out Undertaker before the match (angle alert!). Daivari pleaded with him to not do it. Khali then picked up Daivari, looked him in the eyes, and screamed "BWAAAAAAAAAAAGWHRH!" I LOVE KHALI~!~!~!~!

Teddy Long came out and announced that Lashley could not compete due to elevated enzymes found in his liver. The best part of this was, when the announcement was made, Michael Cole acted SHOCKED! Then, 30-seconds later, Cole said that he had read about this on WWE.com this weekend. Good one, Cole. Lashley came out and said he wanted to compete. Lashley got a superstar reaction, here. Long said he couldn't, but would get a US Title match when he was healthy. Finlay & Regal came down. Finlay said to Long "give me some skin, player!" FINLAY!!! Finlay wanted Long to declare him the winner by forfeit. Long instead said that Finlay & Regal would wrestle each other for the US Title.

JBL: "I have a liver like Jake Roberts, and I've never had elevated enzymes!" This show ROCKS!

Finlay d. William Regal to retain the WWE United States Title. Crowd didn't give these men a chance. It was pretty good, as they stiffed the hell out of each other, but they did it amongst 'boring' chants. The Little Bastard stole Regal's boot, and then Finlay hit Regal with him, and pinned him with his feet on the ropes.

Chavo Guerrero met with Rey, basically telling him that he had his back tonight.

Gregory Helms d. Matt Hardy to retain the WWE Cruiserweight Title (11:00). Good match. JBL: "Gregory Helms game is elevated! His enzymes might not be, but his game is!" JBL is so great. Speaking of which, JBL made a lot of Jeff Hardy references here, so.... Helms won with a roll-up, using the tights.

Big Show & Khali attacked Undertaker.

Teddy Long met up with Daivari, Show, and Khali. Long said that the match was now Undertaker v. Big Show. Khali responded by screaming: "Nahw! Nahw! Thess es my mawtch! NAWH! AAAAAARRRGH!" Khali > Every other human being on earth. Long's reasoning here was completely illogical, and this just ended up feeling like blatant false-advertising.

Undertaker d. Big Show in the Punjabi Prison Match (22:00). Basically, the ring is surrounded by a bamboo cage, and then that is surrounded by another bamboo cage. The inner cage has four small doors, that will be opened by a referee when the wrestler calls for it. The door will remain open for 60-seconds. The outer cage has no doors, and spikes on top to keep you from exiting. You win by escaping both cages. I so wish Khali was in this match. He could eat his way out. Went way too long. The finish was Undertaker jumping off of the inner-cage, onto Show, who then fell back and they both went through the outer cage. Show held on too long though, Show then fell gingerly back, but the cage busted anyways. Looked horrible. Bad match. Only redeeming quality was a spot where Undertaker SWUNG ON A ROPE to kick Show. Undertaker then delivered a FAME-ASSER onto Show, through an ironing-board which was covered in bamboo sticks and palm leaves. That 2-minutes of greatness, however, could not save this.

Krystal v. Michelle McCool v. Jillian Hall v. Ashley in a bra & panties match is up next. Ahsley won by stripping Krystal. Ashley & Jillian then stripped each other after the match, to no reaction.

The Miz interviewed Mr. Kennedy. I hate Miz.

Mr. Kennedy d. Batista via DQ (9:00). Kennedy was bleeding badly. Not sure if it was a blade-job or hardway. Batista was choking Kennedy in the corner with his boot, wouldn't break for the five-count, so he got disqualified. Afterwards, he powerbombed Kennedy. I guess WWE wanted to protect Kennedy with that finish, but it's not like they really did a good job of it or anything, so Batista might as well have just gone over clean.

Booker T d. Rey Mysterio to win the World Title (17:00). Booker was brought out on a throne, which was on the back of a car, which was driven by a KNIGHT! Good match. Chavo came down and KNOCKED THE FUCK out of Rey with a steel chair. Just a brutal shot. Booker then scored the pin. Show went off the air with Sharmell screaming "ALL HAIL KING BOOKER!" I love these two.

Okay show. Not on the level of the previous SmackDown PPVs this year, though.

I had given up hope of Booker ever winning a World title in WWE a few years ago. It's nice to see him finally get one.

I generally don't have as strong of opinions on booking decisions as others, but not having Batista win clean over Kennedy seems retarded to me. So you protect (or try to protect) Kennedy against the man who will soon be going after the World Title, but let Matt freakin' Hardy go over the same guy clean?

With this being basically the return match for arguably the biggest star of the show, shouldn't Batista have gone over clean over basically anyone?

You know, take this for what it's worth since I didn't see the show, but to me Batista getting DQ'ed makes perfect sense if you're going to turn him heel, and you want to show that he's out of control and what not. Of course, it would have made sense to turn him heel if Rey was going to retain, but makes no sense with Booker getting the belt. Maybe they were trying to swerve people into thinking Rey was going to retain? (If so, that's pretty wrong-headed. Don't book to swerve; book to entertain and to keep interest up.)

I agree with your observation, but I also disagree with it. Consider Batista's promo on Thursday/Friday: he's filled with hate and rage and wanted to take it out on someone...and that someone was Kennedy. He wasn't out for a victory, he was out to cause pain. To me, the ending made sense, and now Kennedy can say he has a victory over Batista...which will make for some interesting interviews, and maybe a return match.

I always like to pull for the return match, but the "inspirational first win after an injury" has been done too often. This was really awesome.

As someone who's watched, and liked, Booker T since 1997, just lemme say this (and this is no disrespect to Rey, whom I also like):

ALL HAIL KING BOOKER! Your six-time, six-time, six-time, six-time, six-time, SIX-TIME, World Heavyweight Champion, now can you dig that... SUCKAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!

You can say about WWE what you want, but just look at the guys they made world champions this year: Edge, Mysterio, RVD and Booker T! That´s pretty cool I´d say! Sure - Most of the time WWE sucks! But then again: Vince always seems to give the deserving ones their shots - sooner or LATER! See: Bret, Shawn, Austin, Foley, Jericho, Benoit, Eddie and all those guys mentioned above! WCW didn´t make those guys champions in the first place (except Benoit and Booker)! ECW didn´t as well!! Vince did! That makes you almost forget about all those years (!) when Hulk or HHH held the title! ;)

WWE.com has an article about the title match, and clearly says Chavo screwed Rey.

to quote:
"Chavo Guerrero, who earlier in the night told Rey that he was at the Bash to help keep the dream alive, stunned the world when he picked up a steel chair and leveled his friend over the head. At the Conseco Fieldhouse, the site of Rey Mysterio’s first WWE match, and Eddie Guerrero’s final match, Rey’s impossible and unlikely dream came to a sudden and tragic end"

I'm not sure how Batista going apeshit and destroying Kennedy would make him a heel. If anything he'll be more over after this.

Okay show. The tag match was NWA-riffic, and Finlay/Regal was about as good as could be expected given the limitations. I wish WWE would stop creating these interesting gimmick structures then sticking two bad workers in them. The PP match could've been something really memorable if Taker had someone better to wrestle in there.

Also, WORLD CHAMP BOOKER, BITCHES.



To those who say people wouldn't look; they wouldn't be interested; they're too complacent, indifferent and insulated, I can only reply: There is, in one reporter's opinion, considerable evidence against that contention. But even if they are right, what have they got to lose? Because if they are right, and this instrument is good for nothing but to entertain, amuse and insulate, then the tube is flickering now and we will soon see that the whole struggle is lost. This instrument can teach, it can illuminate; yes, and it can even inspire. But it can do so only to the extent that humans are determined to use it to those ends.

Agreed.....but I wouldn't put Taker in there either.

Put a couple of guys in there that could really go and just turn them loose.

Heh....I know it'll likely change, but as of now that makes Kennedy the #1 contender to Booker's title, does it not?

It reminds me of the scene following No Way Out '00, where immediately following the show the WWF Title match at Mania would have been heel HHH vs heel Big Show if nothing had changed.

I didn't see the show, but reading this reminds me of late 1997 when Austin broke his neck and wasn't allowed to defend his IC title. That was a cool angle.

Regarding Mr Kennedy, he required 20 stitches in his scalp for the bang to the head he received from the steel steps.

I thought the Super Crazy vs Psicosis match on Smackdown was for the no 1 contenders spot for the Cruiserweight title at GAB.

Sites were touting this, yet suddenly out of the blue we get Matt Hardy.

New script please JBL, you get more irritating with every show you do. My opinion is nothing to do with his role as a heel colour commentator, he just lacks ideas.

I do get amused by his comments on the UK though. He even managed to mention William Regal's and my hometown's status as a tourist attraction.

I saw a 1983 match involving Finlay in a tag team match taking on an 18 year old Owen Hart and his brother, Ross on ESPN UK yesterday. An interesting watch for many reasons.

I did not watch the show, but I had to say congrats to Booker. Depleted roster or not, I had conceded that he would never win the big one after jobbing to HHH and JBL. So good for him. I do feel bad for Rey, perhaps the worst booked World champ ever. However, his feud with Chavo should be good, and I expect a solid match from them at 'Slam.

Wwe.com has a video of Booker addressing his subjects after the PPV. The video runs next to a looping flash ad for a Tales of the Crypt DVD, complete with thunder rumbles that perfectly complement Booker's speech.

Six years after the letters ceased to exist, and much longer since they ceased to mean anything, WCW's homegrown superstar (not named Goldberg) and one of its more decorated champions, completes a late career resurgence by pinning the man who helped revolutionize the WCW cruiserweight division for Vince McMahon's second (or maybe even third) most important World championship.

In the undercard, WCW's perenial TV champion, attempted to wrest away the US title (with its proud lineage of title-holders like Tully Blanchard, Magnum TA, Ric Flair, Michael 'PS' Hayes) from his long-time WCW rival Fit Finlay. Both men themselves examples of overcoming injuries, the effects of age and, in the case of his Lordship, addictions to experience unexpected second careers.

All this takes place at 'The Great American Bash,' the NWA/WCW's crown jewel of the summer.

SD, that fantastic little wrestling show that no one talks about, might be dubbed unironically as 'Where the Big Boys Play.'

Quite the night for nostalgia; for the rememberance of that maligned company where charisma was secondary to talent and there was nothing more awesome than a blood feud in July.

Congrats to Booker, from all accounts a good man and fine champion. I'll stave off the 'All Hail chants' for this post and simply say...

CAN YOU DIG THAT....SUCKAAAAA!?!?!

Everybody keeps saying this, but it's not true. The spoilers are always filled with innacurate garbage that everybody picks apart before they see the show. I actually watched Smackdown, and they don't mention it as a #1 contender's match. Helms does commentary and even talks about "whether it's one of these two, or whoever it is."

And was I just partying a little too hard, or did that main event rule? It was one of Booker's best matches that I can remember.

The Punjabi Prison looks neat but it seems like a lot of effort and expense went into something that can only be used if you have an Indian (or guy pretending to be Indian, not counting Tatanka, who it's un-PC to call an Indian) on the roster.

I assume thanks to King Booker, we can now go back to calling it the World Heavyweight Championship?

All hail King Booker!

And talent was secondary to creative control, lest we forget.

You're not seriously nostalgic for WCW, are you?
