Gerweck:

WWE World champion Batista recently did a chat with The London Sun
discussing a number of topics. Highlights include:

The Reaction to Batista criticizing the Smackdown roster last year: " Oh
yes - tons of heat! I got lectured by Vince McMahon, The Undertaker and
all the way down. I had good friends who just turned on me. Well, I
thought they were good friends. Some of them are not with the company now.
But I spoke from my heart then and I still feel that today. Maybe I chose
the wrong forum to voice that opinion but I was speaking from the heart.
When we were having that discussion we were talking about the competition
between Raw and Smackdown. I didn't mention anybody on Raw, but there were
guys on Raw I had the same sentiment about - who were absolutely lazy, had
no passion and I thought should not be there. The same goes now. I'm
putting my foot in my mouth again but I still think there are guys on both
shows who are lazy, couldn't care less and show no dedication. But we're
slowly weeding those guys out. I want everybody in this company to work as
hard as me, Triple H and The Undertaker do. I want them to sack the guys
who lack the passion for this business and this company - I don't want
them to be part of my show. Some of the guys who I think should be on
their way out the door are still being given opportunities to shine, and
it's up to them to take the bull by the horns and show that they really
want to be out there."

Whether the move to Smackdown was a demotion: "Looking at the two shows
compared to last season I wouldn't say Raw have a stronger talent base. On
Smackdown we have Randy Orton, Chris Benoit, Eddie Guerrero and The
Undertaker. That's a very strong line-up. I get a sense that we're
starting over and building the brand - telling new stories and starting
new feuds. Right now we're in the transition phase and once we get our
feet under us - especially now we're on Friday nights - it's going to be a
whole new Smackdown."

His Feud with JBL: "It was very difficult and I was a little disappointed
with our matches. JBL and I have absolutely zero chemistry. Enough said
about that."

The Muhammad Hassan character: "Muhammed Hassan, a different person would
have made that character work. He was helped a lot with his promos and in
the ring I don't think he held his own at all. Daivari, on the other hand,
was perfect - if only we could have taken Daivari's mind and stuck it in
Muhammed Hassan's body. I liked Mark Copani as a person, but he's one of
the people whose heart just wasn't in it. He said he could live "with or
without" wrestling and that is hard to listen to for guys like me who live
and breathe for this business."

OVW preparing WWE talents: "I really wasn't prepared well for the WWE in
OVW and when I came up there were a few times where my job was in jeopardy
- and I think that's not fair. There are still people brought up without
the right preparation. Look at Bobby Lashley - I don't even think he's
close to ready. Bobby Lashley, if held back for a while, could have been
another Brock Lesnar. He's got the amateur accolades and he's an
incredible athlete."

TNA as a competitor to WWE: "I've actually not ever watched any of their
shows. I saw a press conference that they did, which I wasn't very
impressed with. I've also seen clips of their car wreck matches with AJ
Styles doing his stunts. That's not wrestling. Wrestling is storytelling.
But at the same time, I have friends in TNA and I wish them the best.
Those type of matches definitely have their place, it's just not my thing.
I also welcome the competition, which I think can only be good for the
wrestling business."

Being World Champion: "I remember having a drink with Undertaker before I
won the title. I told him I was enjoying myself and he said: "Enjoy it
while it lasts, because when you win that title you'll be working your ass
off." Being world champion is physically so demanding, ask anybody who has
held the belt. You're constantly travelling and working and there is also
the mental pressure, as you're stressing over business aspects that you've
never had to worry about before."

His Dream Wrestlemania opponent: "Brock Lesnar, without a doubt. It's a
dream match for a lot of people, including myself. We could have the bout
that Goldberg v Lesnar should have been. People expected so much from
that, but neither one of them had their hearts in it. I think if Brock did
return my heart would be in it, as would his - we've always had a healthy
competition between us. I have sent the message out to Brock as much as I
can, I really hope he comes back. He said he's done a lot of growing up
and mentally I believe he's ready to return. So much weight was put on his
shoulders at the time so fast, and he was just a kid then, that he
couldn't cope with it."

Fuck you Batista, fuck you. So wrestling in your mind is you stumbling around trying to perform moves such as:

The Clothesline
The Spine Buster
Maybe an arm bar
And a fucked up Powerbomb

Yeah, you sure know what wrestling is.

Fucking retard.

I was thinking the same thing when I read that.
