1 Batista: PG Rating Killed The WWE
As a kid, Batista was a huge wrestling fan. When he commented on the state of wrestling today he took the approach of a mega fan, as opposed to a former employee. Batista was quite blunt when assessing today’s situation, with the former WWE Champion claiming that John Cena killed wrestling. Batista discussed how the days of edgy, in-your-face wrestling are done, and the days of John Cena and PG rated programming destroyed what made wrestling so great. Batista went on to discuss how it’s great that children love the product and John, but the true diehard wrestling fans like himself are suffering and leaving the business altogether, slowly but surely. Batista also claims that he left the business for this very reason; the PG direction was just not appealing to him. Got love him for being honest.
