In 2005, he was probably one of the hottest properties in the entire company. He had one of the best feuds of the year with Triple H and while their initial match at WrestleMania 21 was nothing special, as time went by, from Backlash to Vengeance, things improved.
Now, 2 years later, for the most part, for whatever reason, Batista no longer has that same "magic" about him. Some may say that is due to him constantly being in the main event, however, if that is the case, why is that John Cena, guy who began his run with the WWE title in the same time frame as Batista, is still able stir emotion in people, still able bring some kind of excitement, where as Batista does not?
...or am imagining things? Could it be that I am blowing things out of portion?
So, I ask you, the people of WWEv, what do you think? Do you think Batista is still hot property? If so, explain. If not, why?
