- As noted before, former WWE Superstar Batista was at last night’s Strikeforce MMA show in Los Angeles.
Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer asked Batista why he left WWE. Batista said he was sick and tired of WWE’s direction and had to get out. He said that it wasn’t the kind of wrestling he grew up watching and wasn’t the product that he had always enjoyed.
Batista didn’t rule out a return to WWE but did not seem in a hurry to work with the company again. Batista, who has lost some weight since leaving WWE, said he was out in Los Angeles looking for work. He was seen talking with Strikeforce CEO Scott Coker but The Animal entering the MMA world to fight seems highly unlikely.
