The Great American Bash (2006) was the third annual Great American Bash professional wrestling pay-per-view (PPV) event produced by International Wrestling Entertainment (IWE). It took place on July 23, 2006 at the Conseco Fieldhouse in Indianapolis, Indiana and was a Fusion! brand-exclusive event.
The main feud heading into The Great American Bash was between Scott Wright and King Britz over the World Heavyweight Championship. On the July 7 edition of Fusion!, Britz became the number-one contender to the World Heavyweight Championship by last eliminating William Kapphan and Matt Hooper in a Battle Royal. Later that night, Britz and Queen Tia, Britz's wife, attacked Wright backstage, and executed a low blow.
"I will beat this peasant (Wright), and take the World Championship at the Great American Bash. I want it all. I want my entire kingdom to rejoice in my royal splendor. King Britz will soon be King of the world." King Britz commenting on his future World Heavyweight Championship match against Scott Wright.
The following week, on Fusion!, Wright faced off against William Kapphan, a member of Britz's Court. Steve Britz, who was providing commentary for the match, attempted to interfere and attack Wright. Wright, however, attacked Steve Britz and pinned Kapphan for the win. After the match, Wright executed a 619 and a seated senton on Steve Britz. On the July 21 edition of Fusion!, Wright defeated Steve Britz in a non-title match. Wright pinned Steve Britz after a 619 following interference from Josh Nuss.
