Many wrestlers backstage are starting to show more appreciation for HHH’s work after seeing him carry Batista in their feud. After watching Batista’s most recent matches after coming to SmackDown, many say that the quality of his ring work has lowered in comparison to what he was doing on Raw vs. HHH. During his match at The Great American Bash vs. JBL, Vince McMahon was said to be visibly frustrated and angry. Many within the company are starting notice that since Batista went to SmackDown, he is alot more green then what showed in his matches with HHH.
