Even though he entered the game a little old, he was gradually improving as time went by. Unlike some other top superstars who stayed the same after a decade of the same old shit.

Out of all the bad wrestlers the WWE has hired over the years, he was my favorite. The guy was just too funny.

Had a huge cut out of him, not sure how the fuck I even got it.

He had the best look since maybe goldberg imo

Decent in the rest. Missed his heel turn but from what I pieced together on youtube, it was great

I always liked him too, and like others have said, his last heel run before he left was awesome. I'd quite like to see him return one day.

He was pretty good but people never gave him the credit he deserved

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.

Re: What's the general feelings on Batista around here?

Fantastic look, freaky strong. Built like a brick. He was a legit beast you could buy into. He came along at the right place at the right time. He just looked like the real deal. I hate to admit it but despite his flaws, he just screamed main event. He just had IT. Charismatic for sure.

However, to me he wasn't that great in the ring. He was alright but pretty stiff and looked quite robotic. His mic skills were very limited as well, particularly as a face. As a heel it was better because they smartly booked him so he only gave out 1-3 liners most of the time and the way he carried himself in distain for everything and everyone and his attitude just carried it over well. (I loved when he would come to ring with the mic in hand and then just drop it on the floor to prove a point).

I'll remember him as a legit main eventer but limited in terms of ring ability and promo ability. He came a long at the right time with a fantastic look, charisma and was believable. All when WWE needed a star. He'll be remembered as a big star. Legend? Not a long enough career or memorable moments in my view to consider him as one.

Apparently if you hate Batista, he hates you too.
