Batista recently appeared on the Edge and Christian’s podcast and commented on the state of the current WWE product.
“This is not a dig on anyone, but I just don’t feel that the product is as good as it used to be. I think it has just changed in a lot of ways and not for the better. When I came up with you guys (Edge and Christian), I mean, everybody was rockstars, man! They were real, live rockstars! They were real performers and everybody had kind of an edge to them. They were interesting and different individuals and I feel like a lot of that has been lost. I feel like a lot of the edginess has been taken out of wrestling, the creativity. There’s still great stuff going on with the company, but I don’t… and I feel like a dinosaur when I’m saying this, but I don’t feel like the product is as good as it was.”
It’s worth noting, this is the same Batista, who Dave Meltzer embarrassingly claimed would headline this year’s Hall of Fame.
