Batista Talks WWE PG Era In New Unleashed Trailer

A brand new Batista WWE DVD is heading your way and WrestlingDVDNews.com has posted the first official trailer. In the trailer, Batista talks about his decision to leave the WWE a few years ago with some interesting comments about the PG era.

All you need to do is watch this clip to remind yourself how great Batista was as a heel before he left a few years ago. Batista talks about the WWE’s decision to move to PG in this clip and how it impacted his leaving the company. Batista says he also wanted to try some things without WWE assistance and feels confident he succeeded.

This isn’t the first time Batista has been outspoken about the PG era. Batista cited the WWE’s move to PG as a reason for his departure in a few media interviews, one specifically being an appearance on the Wrestling Observer podcast. It seems only natural that the WWE would repurpose those quotes for their own benefit on the DVD.

I still find it hard to believe that the move to PG was most responsible for Batista leaving. While I understand his feelings, I don’t recall anything Batista did during his first run that he couldn’t have done in the PG era, other than bleeding. Am I missing something? Batista’s opposition to the era would be more understandable if he was Stone Cold Steve Austin or The Rock. I would love to know what Batista thinks he did that he couldn’t have pulled off in the WWE PG era.
