HHH vs edge would be good

 

Got to agree with this (I know shock horror).

 

But I'm hoping that a top of his game Edge will be able to reignite Triple H.He has been stale for a long time and a Triple H v La Famillia angle could be great and the matches should be great.With all the heat Edge and Vicky get the crowd could be white hot for it as well.

Now we know why Edge isn't in that poster!

We also know why Punk is :lol

 

I am very suprised that WWE has not gone with the Stars and Stripes on the poster being all patriotic as they are but rarther have gone for a generic car crash which has nothing to do with the actual PPV other then it has BASH in the title of it

I would hazard a guess at Batista vs Punk for the Title. Wait till Summerslam for the Cena match.

Smackdown spoiler ahoy!

 

 

Edge vs HHH is the Smackdown main event for the show

It is expected for there to be a three-way match for the World Heavyweight Championship at WWE Great American Bash PPV between CM Punk, John Cena and JBL.

if the E are serious about punk they will need to use this match to give him some creditability and i think he would need to pin Cena cleanly (as no one really cares enough about JBL for it to work)

Cena gets pinned cleanly too much now. Since Punk did the Edge-thing, "the ever opportunist", have Cena take out JBL, Punk take out Cena momentarily, but with time enough for him to pin JBL.

every tom dick and harry has pinned JBL at one time or another since he has been there no punks pushes begins at cena.

 

also i could buy punk beating edge, because in IMHO edge didn't work well against the taker as a heel because everyone could see edge geting beaten up badly by him and that is why they gave him the belt back because he sucked chasing it. i have never rated edge much as a champion myself i prefer cage

HHH v Edge should be a good match and hopfully a really good feud. HHH has wanted to do something with Edge for a while so im looking forward to that one. Oh, and the poster sucks.

It would make more sense for Punk to pin JBL.The best way for them to go with CM Punk (particuarly with his lack of build-up) is to go the way that's been discussed on the Raw thread.Have Punk as a genuine underdog,have him win luckily against the heavy odds and have him use every tiny advantage he gets (i.e Cena has JBL beat and CM Punk steals the win).It could be one of those interesting things where they can go in any direction.If the fans buy into it and get behind the underdog then bang you have a different niche face who is over.If the fans crap on it then you can turn him heel easily whilst maintaining the character.Have him become more and more desperate to retain the title,and with desperate times come desperate measures.It could be a real genuine heel character transition.Not a "look I am using coward tactics all of a sudden because I am a heel".It could be a fresh run from out of nowhere really.

but JBL isn't over so beating someone who isn't over would do what? for punk gets him no where

I think its wrong to say JBL isn't over.Sure he doesn't get mega heel heat.But he is a respected heel with a good main event history so it will do the job fine before moving on to someone else.And for Punk it has to be a slow build thing.Just making Cena job to him isn't going to make him be percieved as genuine main eventer.It will just be percieved as giving him a push or God forbid pushing him down are throats.Punk is different to the main eventers they have got push him in that way,treat him as unique,give him the slow burner treatment and see what you have got on your hands.Just don't do the predictable biggest thing in the company has lost to him so therefore he must be good,its Lashley build.Show some variety.

I cant understand what you are trying to say.Are you saying they should have made him the World champion on Smackdown rather then Raw?

yes, they should have gave if the WC of the B show rather than the A show if they were going for the slow burner treatment. as he is on the A show he needs to do more.

 

but he could also lose the match without being beaten at all which could lead to Punk Vs Cena at Summer Slam but in the end the main event for GAB is actually

 

World Championship Match

CM Punk © vs. Batista

 

I hope punk wins as i am not much of fan Dave "threesome when my wife is ill" Batista.
