• Batista Comments On WWE’s Creative Process Being A Nightmare – Says WWE Doesn’t Have A Long-Term Vision
During a recent interview on Wrestling Sheet Radio, former WWE World Heavyweight Champion Batista talked about WWE’s creative process and said the following:
“The creative process, I still don’t get. It was a nightmare to me the last time I was there which was 2014 and it seems like it’s become worse. It seems that they’re just — I feel like they don’t have a clear vision or a long-term vision. Everything’s just week-to-week and it doesn’t seem like they stick to a plan very much.
I don’t think that guys — and I’m gonna steal this from somebody — but Jericho pointed out something to me that makes complete sense. He said that John Cena, he’s the last guy. He’s the last guy who’s gonna be over like he is. It’s because performers now they’re limited, their hands are tied. They can’t go to war like we used to.
We used to go to war and beat the crap outa each other and it earned a level of respect from people. It was like a different level of respect. It was a different level of getting over. We had more freedom. We could be more full of piss and vinegar. We could be more on the edge and the guys are just not given that freedom anymore.”
