• Batista Reveals Why He Wanted To Endure Pain At WrestleMania 35

Former WWE Champion “The Animal” Batista had his final match at WrestleMania 35, where he lost to “The Game” Triple H in a No Holds Barred match.

During a recent appearance on Talk Is Jericho, Batista opened up about taking a bad bump during this match.

Below is what Batista said:

“I was really beaten up. I took a really bad bump. The bump that looked like it hurt the least, hurt the worst. It was this bump I took on a table, I took it all kinds of wrong. So, I felt a little beat up, but I felt really satisfied, at peace with myself, I was happy to go out with that. It was weird, I had such hatred coming back on my last run, but I felt all love this time around. I wanted to beat myself up to show the fans it meant something to me.”

Batista’s nose ring was ripped off during the match by Triple H and Batista revealed that HHH came up with that idea:

“That was all Hunter. I would never wear that out to the ring. But Hunter asked if I was going to wear it out and said he had a spot and explained it. I said, ‘Hell yeah I’ll wear it out!’ We talked about pulling it out, it was great.”
