Batista Rips John Cena For Killing Hardcore, Edgy Wrestling

Former WWE superstar Batista appeared on The Chad Dukes Wrestling Show this week and had some interesting comments about John Cena. To listen to an audio clip of Batista’s appearance, visit the Chad Dukes website.

Many fans have expressed their dislike of today’s sterilized “PG” product – and Batista blames John Cena for the change.

“I think, you know, they did the whole PG direction thing, I think that works for Cena; the little kids love him, cause he’s a great character, he’s someone they can look up to. The girls love him, good looking guy, says all the right things, does all the right things, but the hardcore fans can’t stand him. He is Mr. Hokey, Mr. PG… to me; he killed hardcore, edgy wrestling.”

Batista also commented on his feud with John Cena towards the end of his WWE run. Batista said he was the one booked as the heel, but he had to work extra hard to get booed, because some fans hate John Cena so much:
“I was playing the part of the heel, but they were still booing the hell out of Cena. I really had to go that extra step to be a heel against this guy.
