Former WWE World Heavyweight Champion Batista recently spoke to The Daily Star to promote his movie The Scorpion King 3. Batista called the current WWE product “brutal” and talked about today’s top WWE superstars. Below are a few highlights:

Batista on the current WWE product: “It’s brutal. I can’t watch it. I can’t connect with it. I no longer know this business. I don’t do PG wrestling.”

Batista today’s WWE wrestlers: “Love me or hate me, when I was there everyone took one look at me and knew I could beat someone up. I don’t think they look at Miz that way.”

“It’s sad. It’s not their fault. These days the guys have their hands tied, they are so limited in what they can do. The difference is that guys like Rock, Austin, Triple H, excuse me, but they had to have the living sh*t beat out of them to get where they are. They went through war and the audience knows it and the audience appreciates it. The guys today will never get to that level. It’s sad, but that’s the reason for it.”
