WWE Fans: Stop Booing Batista

Batista, WrestleMania XXX, WWE

The WWE fans in attendance at recent events have booed Batista mercilessly, turning him into a heel much sooner than the WWE had planned on. It’s been great to see the heat that fans have given this clearly out-of-shape wrestler, and the booing has created change. But now fans need to realize that booing only does good things for him, and could lead to the WWE giving him the belt at WrestleMania XXX.

Heels, as is obvious, are meant to make themselves hated. Batista has done a great job of that by flicking off fans and telling them to, “deal with it.” The surprising part of these heel-actions are that Batista originally returned as a face. These actions forced fans to hate him and made him a heel organically. Fans genuinely hate him and boo him loudly. Unfortunately, this may be the downfall to fans’ plans.

On a nightly basis, Batista is booed louder than not only Randy Orton, but also Bray Wyatt and even Triple H. While it is good that his heel character is getting this heat, too much heat could be seen as positive by members of the WWE Creative team. If fans want to prove that they genuinely don’t like him, and aren’t just playing to his heel persona, they should stop booing him and become silent as he walks to the ring; if not, this general disdain will just be seen as character hate instead of personal hate.

While I’m not saying we should not have our voices heard, sometimes being too loud can be a bad thing, and in this case could lead to WWE changing their minds once again on the direction of the company, by giving Batista the WWE World Heavyweight Championship at WrestleMania rather than Daniel Bryan.

    WWE actually wants to make money, it’ll be batista you wait and see, this moron who wrote this post calling batista “out of shape” is a fucking riot. He posts telling there people how to react so HIS favorite can get better treatment. Daniel Bryan’s fans need to stop talking for other people, there’s a good 50% of the fans that don’t want him to succeed either. I don’t get how these marks even get approved as legitimate articles, so opinionated and not true to what would actually happen, no one deserves to win 2 wrestlemania main events wwe doesn’t nearly think that high of Daniel bryan

      Dude, we all saw Batista deprive the crowd of oxygen while being carried like a sack of potatoes his first month back.

      He has been improving, but he was in absolutely dreadful shape upon return. He still might have had the look, but he was sluggish, sucking wind, and just really bad.

        Wwe doesn’t care about that, they care about the money he makes them and especially is going to make them walking the red carpets with the titles.

          Whatever you say Dave. If you haven’t been following, Daniel Bryan is #2 in merch while Dave is barely in the top 10.

          Seems that Bryan is making WWE money. Lots of it. More money than doodling down a red carpet is going to make them, especially considering all the role really needed was muscles.

          Merch is where the big bucks are when you are a touring show.

          I believe Dave himself cares about how crappy he was working, as it is clear with him on the road full time and working every night that he takes having a good match at WMXXX seriously too.

          So not really sure what your argument is. Batista is a really good heel in my opinion and has looked better week after week.

            Batista is actually in the top 4 with 1 shirt when bryan has like 10 and Batistas been back for a month, how is there more money to be made with the crowd saying yes over mainstream publicity for wwe with guardians of the galaxy, doesn’t matter what the role is for, he’s in one of the biggest summer movies period, Daniel bryan moved more merch at a few house shows, how about wweshop He even gets beat by sin cara on there. Did you just saw wwe would make a lot more money with bryan than batista? Dude separate your marky love for Daniel bryan for the truth, he’s not even the the 4th biggest draw he’s behind cena orton batista and punk, bryan making more money for wwe then a movie star who will get tons of mainstream publicity? That’s a riot, as a batista fan like you said, you should know better then that , ryback got chants too and sold more shirts then bryan ever has , but just like bryan he still didn’t draw ratings or buyrates, Bryan’s 5 ppvs in a row for the wwe title all got worse and worse buyrates as it went on, bryan is over, but he isn’t money, not at all compared to others they have.

            Nope, you are wrong about PPVs. Hell in the Cell had a better buyrate than TLC. TLC offered a unification match and HITC offered Bryan-Orton for the 3rd time in as many PPVs. Who is kidding who, after the Dusty finish at Night of Champions, no one believed that anything would be settled until HITC anyways so they were wise and chose not to buy Battleground, which was easily one of the worst PPVs of the year.

            Bryan surely was a part of the drawing power behind HITC. Having HBK as ref helped, but Bryan-Orton for the 3rd time in 2 months still outdrew Cena-Orton to unify the belts.

            Do you really think that Orton carried that buyrate at HITC? Or do you think that THAT buyrate is a part of the reason Bryan seems likely to be in the main event of Wrestlemania?
