Re: What's the general feelings on Batista around here?
As far as I know, the internet fans mostly hated him when he and Cena took the top guy spots and never looked back. I, for one, am a fan. He had an awesome look with a lot of charisma, decent mic skills with whatever botch he made being some of the best memes ever and he was one-dimensional in the ring but given the right opponent, it could work. Looking at him in 2003 and early 2004, he may seem like your average no-personality-having roid-abuser but when he got a chance to show his personality heading into 2005, fans started loving him and he quickly rose to stardom in an instant. I don't think he was bad in the ring but he was a bit limited with strictly power moves and if paired with a boring opponent, the matches sucked. But when he got to work with entertaining wrestlers such as HHH, Undertaker, John Cena and so on, the results were great. Also he even had a match with The Great Khali at No Mercy 2007 which I actually enjoyed. Maybe for comical reasons with the Punjabi Prison thing but nonetheless, I liked it.
