poor but some great matches,
This review is from: WWE - THE GREAT AMERICAN BASH [DVD] (DVD)
The WWE's take on the great american bash as yet to really rival the WCW or NWA branded versions and and in 2007 they had another whack at it and fouled the ball again.
The event opened with a title match,always encouraging,the united states championship to be precise,the champ MVP went up against matt hardy in a sluggish,sloppy encounter that let everyone down,a good finisher aside this was very poor.
The cruiserweight championship was up next in open invitation form and the champ chavo had alot of work cut out as this match took shape with plenty of high risk moves and speed coming from those involved,the ending was beyound revolting,such a slap in the face for the division and for us the fans,i was nearly sick,im nearly sick now thinking of it.
A singopore cane on a pole match was up next as carlito fought the sandman who wasnt his normal self on the way into the ring which was annoying,the match itself was horrible and a very cheap ending ,the cane was hardly used and this annoyed so many.
The womans title was up next,candice vs melina,this was dull as dishwater,so poor,pity me please.
The WWE intercomtiental championship was up next,the champ umaga went up against jeff hardy,this was,much as it pains me to say it,the first great match of the night,plenty of things happening,end to end in terms of dominance and a very good in ring chemistry shared ,very pleasing indeed.
The ECW championship was up next as the champ john morrison fought CM punk,this was an excellent match and although these two fought so much in that year i felt they both went for it with conviction and with heart and this was a real crowd on their feets kind of match,belting.
A texas bullrope match was next and was contested between dusty rhodes and randy orton who was on a great roll in 2007,this match wasnt pretty really and didnt last long but a very convincing ending meant that i walked away thinking this was a worthwhile match.
The world heavyweight title was up for grabs next in a triple threat match that didnt have the greatest hype as if memory serves me rightly it was meant to be edge versus khali but edge got injured and had to give the belt up so khali won it and defended it here in a decent match that didnt blow my eyes out of their sockets in any way really,but there was some good hits and moves here and it didnt drag on thankfully.
The main event was next,the WWE championship was contested with lots of hype and interest between the champ john cena and bobby lashley,this match was class through and through,lashley has since left the WWE and didnt leave the greatest impression but he bang on form here as was cena and they went for it guts and all,this was a very worthy main event and 2.5 stars is the events reward.
