Batista’s final run in WWE before his retirement was against Triple H which culminated at Wrestlemania 35 a couple of years ago. One of the most popular lines during that feud saw Batista telling Triple H to give him what he wanted over and over again. Batista was also supposed to be inducted into the WWE Hall Of Fame last year but due to timing issues and scheduling conflicts, it did not end up happening. WWE also paid huge money for the return of Batista.
While Dave Bautista was supposed to be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2020, this did not happen due to the worldwide pandemic and due to previous obligations on Batista’s end. However, fans have been clamoring for ‘The Animal’ to get his due and to be inducted as quickly as possible.
In an interview on the Insiders Edge Podcast, former WWE diva Cherry recalled how The Animal was happy to offer his opinion if she started dating someone:
“I became really good friends with Batista. He’s so down to earth, so cool. He was always so funny. He was always like, ‘If you start dating somebody, you have to talk to me first and I need to give the okay.’ He was so, so cool, so I got close with him.Big Show’s awesome,” Cherry continued. “Big Show came to my apartment once because we were all gonna go out to dinner, and it was funny to see my neighbors like [looking up at Big Show] because I didn’t socialize with a lot of the other people in the apartment, so I don’t think they knew what I did. That was funny. Flair took a huge liking to me, which I didn’t mind. Who’s not gonna like a friendship with Flair?”
