Headlies: WWE Celebrates The Great American Bashams

Columbus, OH – Following the success of this past week’s The Great American Bash on NXT, WWE has decided to keep the theme going with a new event called The Great American Bashams.

Throughout the weekend, the WWE Network highlighted the career of Doug and Danny Basham. The former two-time WWE Tag Team Champions received the star treatment with an hour-long documentary. Interviews from WWE officials and former members of The Cabinet JBL, Orlando Jordan, and Jillian Hall, gave fans a behind-the-scenes look at the mid-2000s tag team.

The highlight of The Great American Bashams celebration, was their reunion on NXT. Sporting studded Uncle Sam-style hats and red, white, and blue ball gags, the tag team was joined by their manager Shaniqua. In a brief match, the leather clad duo easily defeated NXT tag team champions Imperium in a non-title match.

Executive Director of NXT Triple H explained the reasoning behind the move.

“Well, look. The Bashams were in instrumental part of Smackdown in fifteen years ago,” said Triple H. “There’s nothing more patriotic than a bunch of weirdos freely expressing themselves. Rockets red glare, sweet land of liberty. That sort of thing. Definitely not because Vince thinks it’s funny. Not at all.”

While there are currently no plans to continue featuring The Bashams, WWE Shop is already selling American-themed Basham riding crops, Basham sparklers, and Doug and Danny Basham gimp masks.

    Rumours have started to float that WWE plan to do a Great American Males Bash – it will feature skantily dressed muscle men wearing only smiles and body oil dancing around the desk of a highly excited Vince McMahon whilst the entrance music for forgotten WCW tag team The American Males plays on repeat. Attendance is by invite only and Roman Reigns and Baron Corbin can expect to be roofied.

    Also The Great American Hash, where Rob Van Dam and Val Venus etc etc

    • Thomas Moffatt says:

      Great American Stash would work there – they could bring in Van Hammer and Duke the Dumpster Droese, too…

    I think you’re all confused. It’s the Real American Bash, brother!

    Also the Great American Crash: A look back at the career of Crash Holly including never before seen Hardcore Title matches under the 24/7 rule with an exclusive interview by R-Truth commenting on the legacy of the 24/7 Title and how the idea came from the Hardcore Title. (however at the end of the taping R-Truth was pinned by the cameraman)

  5. C Boz says:

    Shouldn’t this story be shown as coming from the newly renamed Flavortown, Ohio?

  6. Rich Phillips says:

    The Great American Tash featuring Rick Rude and Dutch Mantel must be on the cards somewhere
