Batista wants retirement feud with Triple H but doesn’t miss the WWE bulls**t

It is several years since Batista ‘quit’ WWE after his brief stint with Evolution – the reason for ‘The Animal’ departing at that time was for the bright lights of Hollywood and it seems to have worked – playing a role as Drax the Destroyer in Guardians of the Galaxy 2, which incidentally he is receiving great reviews for.

All that said, he stated¬†on Chris Jericho’s podcast that he still misses ‘wrestling’, but not WWE:

“Yeah, I miss it a lot. … There’s nothing like it, you know that. There’s just an adrenaline rush that goes along with it. What I don’t miss is the company, to be honest with you. I don’t miss WWE. I miss wrestling, I just don’t miss dealing with the company and its bullshit. Yeah it’s the bullshit man, it’s just too much bullshit.”

Jericho also mentioned his surprise that WWE hasn’t asked him to come back and do something:

“I’ve asked, yeah, I’ve asked. Well, there’s… I’ve asked for what I want. I’ll tell you and I’ve talked to Hunter about it and I’ve talked to Vince about it. I said I would come back and run a whole program with Hunter. That’s the only thing I’m interested in doing. They’re just not interested in it, you know?”

¬†Batista mentions he has been told “they will think about it” on numerous occasion and says he has no interest in working with anyone other than the Game:

“At this point, no, because it would be my retirement thing. It would be what I would go out on. I would come back and I’d do a whole program and then I’d be done.”

Batista would clearly like to have a final run with the company and retire on his own terms in a program with Triple H, but it doesn’t look to be in the offing anytime soon. Maybe WrestleMania 34?

    I’m not surprised HHH won’t do a program with Batista. After all, he was never in WCW.

    Lol I understand that. But Drax would have no impact if he died like many others would. He’s not high enough for it to be a big deal and he’s not low enough that people won’t care. If anything it would be higher up like; Rodgers, Stark or Thor. Or lower on the totem pole like; hawkeye, Scarlett witch or Vision.

    I don’t think you understand. The Infinity War is going to have ALL the Marvel characters. EVERYBODY is going to be in it. That is why there have been movies to introduce the characters.

    The whole premise of the Infinity War movies is that the Guardians Of The Galaxy will join forces with the Avengers to battle Thanos.

  • Kristopher Robinson

    I see your point, but I highly doubt that drax would be killed. Especially seeing as how they killed Yondu in the GOTG2. Draw dying wouldn’t really affect the MCU as much as; Rodgers, Iron or Thor would. GOTG probably won’t even be as well present as the Avengers will in Infinity Wars. But it is possible.

    A LOT of characters are going to die in the Infinity War. A LOT.

    The point is that Drax The Destroyer probably won’t survive the Infinity War meaning Batista’s run in Marvel will be done unless they plan on making a Drax the Destroyer origin pic (which is highly improbable and wouldn’t make sense after him being destroyed in Infinity War,) or he gets cast as a different character which isn’t impossible considering Josh Brolin is currently catst as Thanos, but has recently been awarded the role of Cable in Deadpool 2.

    Yes, the Deadpool movies are made by FOX, but Cable and Thanos are both Marvel characters obviously. It’s not the same as Ryan Reynolds playing Green Lantern in DC, but Deadpool in Marvel. Chris Evans played the Human Torch in the first two Fantastic Four movies, but now he is captain America. Now that Fantastic Four has been reboot with Michael B. Jordan as the Human Torch it makes it less silly.

    So Batista will probably be done after the Infinity War. A lot of actors will be. Even several of the main Avengers actors will be done.

    He not going to get wipe out. He one of the major stars in GOTG2.

  • D2K

    Well…..until he gets wiped out in the Infinity War movie. I can’t see him lasting in the battle against Thanos.

  • jack

    hes a marvel superhero bfs!! batista made it outside of wrestling!! you’d think WWE would be delighted to have him. what a mess.

  • D2K

    Batista was freaking savage in GOTG2. This guy will be able to write his own ticket even more than before with a performance like that.

    This is what HHH will be doing at WM from now on. He going to do retirement matches and he may do a Kurt Angle match at WM 34.
