• Batista Recalls Getting Kicked Out Of A WWE House Show

During an appearance on Talk Is Jericho, former WWE Champion “The Animal” Batista recalled getting kicked out of a WWE House Show for going backstage without permission.

Below is what Batista said:

“I shed a few tears, the first time I was in that arena [in Washington DC], I was kicked out.

I had called Jim Cornette looking for a job and no one would return my calls. They had a house show there, had some friends make a couple of calls to see if Cornette would be there and I just went down there. I didn’t know any better, went backstage, no one stopped me and I’m just walking around backstage looking for him.

Security came up and asked if they could help me and I told them I was looking for Cornette, they told me I had to leave.”
