Should Batista Have Been Chosen instead of Cena?

In 2005 at Wrestlemania 21 they both won the top 2 titles of the company and were the 2 top guys ala Austin/Rock and Vince decided to make John Cena the face of the Company ahead of Batista, What I'm saying is was it the right move? Was cena really the right guy? I don't think so as it's been shown Dave has had crossover ability like the Rock or at least he is starting to, while people say that cena is the more talented one or the better company guy I don't think so as I've already stated non-wrestling fans like or at least know of him now while cena is pretty much unknown outside the wrestling world and Batista seems the better choice to me overall as he has the better look as he's clearly more jacked that cena, he has better mic skills on my opinion and has more talent. Yes people can say cena is better because he isn't going to leave but Dave just like Austin had his reasons for leaving and it shouldn't be just about guys that'll spend more than 10 years or so with the company, it should just be about the overall talent.

For my own personal enjoyment, Yes

Keep, Dave on Raw and send Hunter to Smackdown to work with Taker heading into WM 22. Dave could've had some great feuds on Raw in 05 through 06.

My ideal WM 22 would've been:
Edge Vs Batista for the WHC
Cena Vs Orton for the WWE title
Taker Vs HHH HIAC

Definitely not. Cena was a lot younger and more dedicated to the business. Cena is also better at dealing with the media and a better talent. Across the board, Cena wins.

This by far, plus he's done a very very good job, even if you're not a Cena fan, you have to admit this, because he has.

I wonder how we'll look back on Cena when the next face had been in a while.

Cena was the guy on Raw, Batista was the guy on Smackdown. There was some balance.

Unlike Cena, Batista wasnt getting booed out of the building half the time.

Re: Should Batista Have Been Chosen instead of Cena?

I prefer Batista, but I understand why WWE choose Cena. Younger and a more goody-two-shoes family friendly guy.
