Matches are slowly coming in week by week. So far confirmed thanks to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WWE_The_Great_American_Bash and the main WWE site http://www.wwe.com/shows/thegreatamericanbash/ and other source links (see the source links thread for those):

Chris Jericho challenge to Shawn Michaals, feud match

HHH vs. Edge for the WWE Title (The new Smackdown title)

CM Punk to defend his new World Heavyweight title (The New RAW Title)

There will be more to come of course, and this site does quite a good job on the updates, keep it up!

ADDED:

Well we got at least the main card now. For me I see it as a big test for RAW's youth movement and seeing how the moves go. And please, no one cares about Vince, WWE. :P

Edge vs HHH - I want to say Edge of Canada from here, eh can win but he's going against the Game and his "influencial swing". It would be better if HHH chased the belt as face as to continue the wedding angle (still tops in heeldom right now with Vickie so fine that they flipfliopped this week the idea to have the 2 feud) and then of course, HHH can of course work more towards his # of title holds that Flair has. BTW Am hearing Flair might be slipped into this feud now...such a waste for the retirement now, too soon to bring him back like to say Woo for that giveaway but I digress.

Winner-Likely HHH but an Edge win would be nice to further that feud.

CM Punk vs Batista - Up here I'm hearing a few reviewers say Batista can't hang anymore and even a heel turn would flop like with Taker. I don't concur and think Batista needs the turn now in this match, lose the match but make himself #1 heel on RAW until Orton returns (maybe even re-teaming with him for a new Evolution?). Punk needs to stay strong and WWE needs to keep the faith and be patient, the youth will rise and the fans will slowly come to like them (it's WWE's own fault for using established stars for too long and shutting down pushes for recent new talents).

Winner-CM Punk retians but Batista turns heel to continue the feud to Summerslam

HBK vs. Y2J - Only the best feud in any fed right now. Yes I'm a Y2J mark but also am happy how HBK has been doing with it too. The promos and progression have been perfect and I almost think it's too soon to end it, so let's say HBK loses this one but sets up a blowoff match at Summerslam...say...a ladder match anyone?

Winner: Y2J via cheating, like how the fans cheat him in his view.

Natalya vs. Michelle McCool - This was announced this week finally for the Butterfly title on Smackdown. I figure Natalya should win and they start a face chase of the belt for McCool. I do like the submission angle for it of Sharpshooter versus leglock (from the MMA influence of late, you can thank guys like Taker for that influx).

Winner and NEW Diva champ: Natalya

John Cena vs. JBL, NY Street Fight - Really tricky to get these guys to click but they did have an I Quit match the first time they feuded on Smackdown and that worked OK since JBL is really hurting, like Kurt Angle like hurt and needs rest after this. Just end it so Cena can move on and PLEASE writers, stop the poop jokes with him; I am not a big fan of Cena but I know his improv promos are far superior to the BS the writers give him these days. It's 5 year old humour for a 30 year old average crowd...grow up but again I digress...

Winner: Cena and sending JBL off to rest a while...

Mark Henry vs. Tommy Dreamer - The forgotten as usual ECW title is up for grabs here, announced this week. I do like that they finally gave Henry a good mouthpiece in Tony Atlas and did the double cross this week perfectly (Hear that Russo? heh.). Tommy is so reliable and long time hard working, and even in loss, he will give a good match despite not being an athlete like some. He's like Mick Foley, a hard working fighter. I say sadly Henry's reign won't end but at least he doesn't need to talk so much. Now give him D'Lo Brown back!

Winner: Henry with Atlas' help.

OK there we go for now, if anymore matches come up I'll try to give my 2 cents to them as well, take care!

ADDED Part 2:

Fatal 4 Way Tag Team Match for Smackdown Tag Titles: Morrison and Miz vs. Finley and Hornswoggle vs. Jesse and Festus vs. Ryder and Hawkins - I thought the other belts would be on the line (still might be with 3 days to go) but this one has been sort of midcarded as well in 2 stroylines. While I hate the M and M jobbing to the Midget with Finley being face (he's such a better heel), they at least still have the titles and have some of the best chemistry in a weak division that can't seem to hold base until recently. Hawkins and Ryder are sort of there in Edge's faction, while I have taken a liking to the Biscuits and Gravy tag team (note how with JR moved to Smackdown he puts them way over with catchphrases and praise?). I'd like to see the Gravy boat come to Jesse and Festus but I'd rather see it in a normal tag match, and I certainly don't really want to see it on the Irsh team or the Edge team. This is sort of the likely opener if they don't go to the usual plan of opening with the useless ECW belt.

Winner: M and M retain but maybe finally spin away from the Irish team and feud with one of the other ones.

ADDED Part 3:

US Title Match: Matt Hardy vs. Shelton Benjamin-Thank goodness, I forgot to mention how forgotten the Hardyz were in this PPV (at least one got in a match at the last minute) just like other talent from Kennedy to MVP to Mickie James. I am happy to see this one get another go as their match from a bit ago was solid and both work hard to be creative and entertaining in ring. Just PLEASE continue the Benjamin build, easily the #1 under-used talent in WWE for years!

Winner: Matt will retain but let's hope they continue the feud!

Enjoy the PPV!

Well i thought i'd better give my 2 cents worrth on what I think may happen at the PPV.

Chris Jericho vs. Shawn Michaels-This could easily steel the show as the build up for this match has been very impressive.Jericho seem's to have hit his stride now as a heel 6 months or so since he returned.I antcipate this feud to continue onto Summerslam with maybe a Jerhico/Cade vs HBK.London tag match on raw in between.
Prediction Jericho via help from Cade

NYC Parking Lot Brawl: John Cena vs. JBL-First off Cena's promo on RAW was one of he best i've seen from him full of emotion and intensity.Cena should get the win here to move onto a title match at Summerslam but a JBL victory could lengthen out the feud some more
Prediction Cena via pinfall

WWE Tag Team Title Fatal Four Way Match: John Morrison & The Miz © vs. Finlay & Hornswoggle vs. Curt Hawkins & Zack
Ryder vs. Jesse & Festus
-Surprised what got this tag titles match and not one from Raw.The current champs have had a good run with the titles and devloped quite nicely as a team,though in saying that i think they'll drop the belts this time and be moved into singles programs.Of the 3 contenders,Finley and son would be okay champs but not for a long run,The R army possibly going to be involved with that faction's impending split but a tag title run would give them a push.Jesse and Festus hmmm well they've been
show cased a bit but again not a long term prospect IMO.
Prediction-Hawkins and Ryder to win via outside help

Smackdown Diva's Title Match: Michelle McCool vs. Natalya Neidhart
-This match could be surprising and depends on future planning.McCool wins you've got 2 clear heels chasing her with Natalya and Victoria.Natalya wins you have this rivialry contiuing for a while.50-50 on this won so go with a win to Neidhart
Prediction Neidheart via submisson or heel tactics

WWE US Title Match: Matt Hardy © vs. Shelton Benjamin
-Another intresting match.Hardy is on the cusp of moving up to main event sometime in the next year while Shelton has tremendous potential but is underused.Both men would benefit with the win Matt to build him up more,Shelton to get pushed.Agian i'm 50-50 on so i'll say Hardy retains
Prediction-Matt via pinfall

ECW Title Match: Mark Henry © vs. Tommy Dreamer
-Would like Tommy Dreamer but unfortunatly don't see it though seeing as Henry just won the belt he ain't going to drop it soon.
Prediction Mark Henry bia pinfall after Tony Atlas helps

World Title Match: CM Punk © vs. Batista
-Like everyone i was overjoyed when CM Punk became the world champ.Like a majority i hope he's not going to be a transitional champ and even after Raw and the reported Dark match where he was done in 3 minutes by Batistia I can see him retaining.Batistia need's a heel turn now,and losing another title match may be the spark to lunch it begining the next night.Will Kane interfeare,proably though i'd like Punk to go over clean without looking lucky.
Prediction CM Punk via pinfall after Kane interfears

WWE Title Match: HHH © vs. Edge
-I feel this match could be a classic if things are done right.An HHH win leaves him to either sometime turn heel and feud possibly with a Jeff Hardy or possibly Kenedy if he's pushed right.Also they possibly could further this one through to Summerslam for a big gimmick match leading into the Undertaker's return while HHH takes some time off playing daddy .If Edge wins he in turn could feud with the aforementioned as well as possibly Matt Hardy until Undertaker returns or when HHH gets back.The possiblites are endless what will happen we'll have to wait and see.
Prediction Edge but via DQ re match at SummerSlam.


Anyway there are my 2 cents worth of thoughts on the Great Amercian Bash 2008.
