    This is a waste… Mick Foley should be on something like NXT so he could help put over the newer talent. But I suppose some Foley is better than no Foley.

      No Foley is better than some Foley…

        I disagree, Foley has proved himself to be a great worker and he has helped a lot of younger guys over time. The guy is also popular amongst fans of all ages since he has had several gimmicks and has been in wrestling for quite a long time.

    Soon Batista Soon…. One of my favourite guys even though everyone else hates him. He defined ruthless aggression.

      Might be a while before that happens, my freind! Batista is in MMA now and with his recent successful victories in MMA I dont think that Dave will be leaving the company any time soon… but I do remember an interview with Batista not long ago where he said that he will return to the WWE when the PG stuff is over, so possibly never xD. But, seriously, with WWE.com reporting his new acting role, Batista may return to host a PPV or something. I would love to see the animal return though, so do not think im disagreeing with you!

        But is the “PG” stuff ever going to be over?I don’t think so!(Although I personally wished it was)WWE goes with whatever can bring in the most money.With virtually no competition,they can pretty much do as they please.No longer are the days of “out maneuvering”the other guys.There aren’t any “other guys”to out maneuver!

          That was my first thought. Remember, I didnt say that, Batista did.
