Ex-WWE champion Dave Batista ruled out a comeback to the promotion of Vince McMahon. “The Animal” Dave Batista quit WWE in early 2010 after a lengthy feud against John Cena, to take a break from wrestling.
Batista Return To WWE Is Unlikely as he has some surprisingly strong words and distanced himself from the current WWE PG product.
When asked during an interview, Batista gave his opinion about the wrestling business in [the U.S.] in no uncertain terms.
The former WWE champion said that he thought nothing of the “PG” programming of the WWE and he has lost any desire to work with the WWE since the introduction of this new philosophy.
Batista believed that it would always be harder to watch the shows and “hide the reality to be captivated by the product” (“suspension of disbelief”), as many stories now simply become too childish to still be credible .
He noted that the Batista gimmick was definitely not “PG”, so that during 2009/2010, he increasingly lost the fun of wrestling. “And if you need to deal with the hard and fast paced WWE Schedule “on the road”, the profession should at least be fun so I finally decided to resign.”
It was noted that the last heel run by Batista in the spring of 2010 was the “best Batista of all time” and it was therefore surprising that “The Animal” was not having fun at work.
Again Big Dave Batista replied honestly: “The Heel Run could that good, because I had already finished with with WWE as an employer. I knew soon [after the feud with Cena], I would leave the promotion. .”
Batista also discussced backstage WWE politics
“Usually this [WWE] business is extremely political. You always have to be very careful backstage with whom you are saying what to and what proposals [regarding the development of your wrestling character] is going on.
“Last year I knew already that I would go soon anyway, so in the end, it no longer bother me who I “piss”.
“I just have control over the presentation of my wrestling character in the shows. ” The heel Batista reflected in many ways his honest sentiment in 2010 and was played out quite naturally from his gut.
That’s why Batista feel that he probably come across as so authentic.
“The feud with Cena also pose a challenge, the audience had to really totally antagonize him, because Cena was a tweener who many of the fans did not like, which usually automatically ensure Pops for his opponents.” Batista felt it was necessarily to prevent this scenario.
Therefore, Batista had kept a great heel promo for the last RAW before WrestleMania 26 in San Jose that was not really approved backstage with the Office and was no longer “PG”. In this promo he had then insulted the audience big time heading into the WrestleMania match as a clear heel.
After the show, there was big trouble for Batista. Vince McMahon took him aside and stated that Batista “had gone too far” [in his choice of words].
Otherwise, the further course of the feud was very largely influenced by Batista. Even the “cool” outfits in his last three months, come from Batista own creation.
After leaving the WWE, Batista decide to negotiate a contract with MMA Promotion Strikeforce for a possible fight. The former WWE star underwent MMA training for many months.
However Batista MMA career come to a stop when UFC purchased Strikeforce, thus cancelling his scheduled fights.
Currently Batista is planning to open his own MMA Gym in Tampa Florida via partnership with Cesar Gracie. Batista will be providing the money while Cesar Gracie acts as the head trainer of the MMA Gym.
