Re: Batista Returns Discussion Thread

Some of the GOTG promo items have begun to come out ahead the trailer, which gives us a good look at Batista as Drax the Destroyer. He looks pretty badass.


Spoiler for big picture:

"Return to me again empty-handed, and I will bathe the starways in your blood."



Thanos is only beaten because he allows himself to be, and he only allows himself to be beaten because, in spite of his ambition to attain ultimate power, he sub-consciously knows that he's not worthy of it.

Did you hate his heel run too? Even most of his haters on the internet admit that it was entertaining and probably why there's such a positive response from so many for his return.

Don't mind Pyro, once he makes up his mind that something sucks, he'll never change his mind no matter how much that performer proves he's now good. The only exceptions are The Miz and CM Punk for him, but for guys like Batista, Seth Rollins, etc. no matter how much they prove that they have improved astronomically and are now good on the mic, they are just not his guys.

Judging by that poster, he would also make a great looking Kratos if they ever did a God of War movie.

Re: Batista Returns Discussion Thread

I liked Batista pretty much the whole run. Became a fan in 2004, loved his 2005 and 2007 years especially, plus his feud with Edge in '08 was very entertaining. Granted, I stopped watching in 2006 but I've seen plenty of his post-2006 stuff since. I was watching again in '09 when he turned heel and loved his whole heel run until he retired. I did hate how one sided his last feud with Cena was, but it was expected since we all knew he was leaving soon. I hope he goes heel eventually, though I expect him to be face for at least the few first months after his return.

Re: Batista Returns Discussion Thread

I think Batistas entrance when he returns is going to be both the machine gun pyro and the spotlight. He will first do the machine gun pose, then he will point to himself making sure the spotlight is on him

Proud mark and supporter of Triple H. All of his wins are well deserved and he has earned his spot. Theres nothing you guys can do about it. Haters can suck it.

My 10 Favorite Wrestlers of all Time
1. Stone Cold Steve Austin
2. Shawn Michaels
3. Chris Jericho
4. Triple H
5. Edge
6. Undertaker
7. The Rock
8. Bret Hart
9. Kurt Angle
10. Mick Foley

Yeah this sounds great!

Slightly off-topic, but Batista's performance in Guardians of the Galaxy is getting unanimous praise, which will only increase his mainstream appeal, and that can be nothing but great news for getting eyes on the WWE product.

Quote:
Also, Dave Bautista's performance in the film apparently received nothing but high praise from other Guardians cast members: “Every single person we spoke to on the set talked about how blown away they were by what Bautista has been doing with the role.”

Yeah, I did. You know why people loved his heel run? Because he was against John Cena. The IWC would cheer the Third Reich over him.

I changed my mind on Bray Wyatt, I changed my mind on Del Rio when he showed up on tv after having terrible vignettes, etc. So you're making shit up. Batista and Seth Rollins still suck on the mic, that's why I haven't changed my opinions. They're STILL bad. The fact that I make exceptions proves it's not a bias. I make high standards, if your standard is Seth Rollins then you obviously don't care how cringeworthy somebody is, and good for you, it makes wrestling a lot more bearable I'm sure, but unfortunately, I don't have the power to hold myself to such a low bar.

What everyone really wants for Christmas:

Great point pyro. And what's that say when people ONLY praise Batista about that certain heel run? Lol. Don't understand what people see in him at all. Batista owes his life to HHH.

Top 10 all time favorites:

Stone Cold Steve Austin
The Undertaker
Shawn Michaels
Chris Jericho
Brock Lesnar
Kurt Angle
HHH
Edge
CM Punk
Kane (98-04)

Ha, I know. He even admitted in another thread a while back that when he usually makes up his mind on something, he keeps his opinion (usually negative).

It is funny to read some of his posts that are still around from 2006, though. One of them was him mocking Punk fans as delusional indy marks.

Wouldn't be so sure about that. People in here have still hated on Ryback for instance, even when he was feuding with Cena. I would've doubted Batista's ability on the mic prior to that but seeing him cut the heel promos on Cena showed that he is capable of cutting good promos that are not just brief backstage segments.
