During an interview with the UK’s Daily Star to promote his new Scorpion King 3 DVD, former WWE superstar Batista had some harsh things to say about today’s WWE product.
Batista, who rose to superstardom right before WWE shifted to the current “PG Era” of programming, says today’s superstars are at a serious disadvantage compared to the previous generation of stars like Steve Austin, The Rock and Triple H.
Here are some highlights of what Batista said about:
The current WWE product: “It’s brutal. I can’t watch it. I can’t connect with it. I no longer know this business. I don’t do PG wrestling.”
The Miz and today’s Superstars: “Love me or hate me, when I was there everyone took one look at me and knew I could beat someone up. I don’t think they look at Miz that way. It’s sad. It’s not their fault. These days the guys have their hands tied, they are so limited in what they can do.”
“The difference is that guys like Rock, Austin, Triple H, excuse me, but they had to have the living sh*t beat out of them to get where they are. They went through war and the audience knows it and theaudience appreciates it. The guys today will never get to that level. It’s sad, but that’s the reason for it.”
