2. Former WWE Champion Reveals Why He’ll Never Return

During an appearance on “Talk Is Jericho” podcast, former WWE Champion Batista talked about why he doesn’t plan on returning to WWE. Below are the highlights:

On if he misses Pro-Wrestling:
“There’s nothing like it. You know how it is. There’s just an adrenaline rush that goes along with it. What I don’t miss is the company, to be honest with you. I don’t miss WWE. I miss wrestling. I just don’t miss dealing with the company and its bull****. Yeah, the bull****, man. It’s just too much bull****.”

On if he has contacted WWE for a return:
“I guess WWE is not interested. And I’ve run it by them a few different times. They just say, ‘meh, we’ll think about it.’ Vince, every time I ask him, ‘meh, I’ll think about it.’ I’ve asked, but now it’s at a point where I’m tired of asking. The last time I talked to Vince about it was a while ago and I said, ‘if we say we’re going to do it, I can put it in my calendar’ but now my calendar fills up pretty quickly. Like, I’m already booked up for the next year and a half, so my window is getting smaller. I’m not getting any younger. But see, I don’t know if it’ll ever happen.”

On if he would be willing to work with someone other than Triple H:
“At this point, no, because it would be like my retirement thing. It’d be what I go out on. I’d come back and I’d do it. I would do a whole program and I’d be done. But that’s how I’d want to go out because we have such a history together and there’s so much history built in. There’s an easy story to be told and I think people would get into it and they’d like it. And Hunter, he’s just awesome to work with.”
