I am one of Cena's biggest critic but even I wouldn't agree with that. The biggest mistake is changing his character to fit the PG era and then moving him to Raw and then never turning him heel. But he is a hell of a talent. There is no denying there.

I agree and it’s the reason I stopped watching. Started watching again last November time I still change the channel any time I see him. Thankfully it’s very little

they wouldn't be feuding all the time but would cross paths.

but you could easily keep them separated.

Re: Batista should have stayed on RAW in 2005

I think putting Cena on Raw was their biggest mistake of the past 15 years. He was fine on Smackdown beating up on guys like JBL, Big Show and Booker T but the second he rocked up on Raw and started throwing around Jericho, Angle and Shawn everyone turned on him. Batista was Raw's guy and they threw him under the bus for a wanna be rapper in jorts.

Cena had already went over Angle on SmackDown. I guess you forgot that Angle was drafted to RAW a few weeks after Cena. Also they didn't throw Batista under the bus. Cena was younger so of course they were going to go with him (and Orton).

He is a blind Cena hater.

I'm not so sure, I think in hindsight we can look at it and think it was the wrong decision but given Cena had just won the WWE Title and was the golden boy then anything but number one status for Batista on either show would've been a step down,I think the plan would've been for Batista to go to WM22 and face Taker and Cena to face HHH then have Batista be drafted back to RAW in the July 06 draft and move towards a Cena vs Batisa main event for the WWE Title at WM23 but injury nixed that plan, Cena/Batista should've happened at Mania 24 though a year later, I know Cena's injury in late 07 threw a lot of plans in thr air but aftwr 2008 it felt like the horse had well and truly bolted

You didn't answer the question. Please name a promotion that has pulled that off. I'm waiting. I'll be waiting forever, because it has not occurred.

WWE I see why they did it to keep the younger Cena to be the face to get better longevity out of him, but lets face it everyone was watching RAW back then not Smackdown, they should have kept both of them on the same show, the brand split back then was pretty much dead then anyways. HHH was already on vacation for the Summer so they could have moved over a few new faces to RAW to feud with Dave.
Batista was over, but let's not get carried away here.

Just because you never got a blowjob before doesn't mean you won't get one eventually.
