WWE News: Batista on whether he wants to return to WWE, whether he was happy to have Daniel Bryan in the WrestleMania 30 main event
WWE star Batista told the WWE website that he was happy to have Daniel Bryan added to the WrestleMania 30 main event. "Oh, I was super excited," Batista said. "I was super excited, because, you know, we needed that element. Even speaking from a fan's standpoint, for me, it's hard to get sucked into a [bad guy vs. bad guy] match. We needed a hero, man, and Daniel Bryan was the biggest hero in the company. I knew this was gonna be good. It's so much better when the fans have an emotional investment. And they were so emotionally invested in Daniel Bryan, and they were so absorbed in their hatred for me that I knew it was gonna be good stuff."
Batista also spoke about the possibility of returning to WWE. "We've already been talking about that," he said. "We were talking about when I would come back before I even left. I don't feel like my career is over. I felt better leaving this time than when I got in, because I came in with an injury and I left feeling healthy as can be. It's hard for me to leave now because I feel like I was just hitting my stride. I think a lot of people forgot I was away from wrestling for four years, and it took me a couple months to really start getting in touch with the audience because it's a completely different audience, man. It was really weird for me at first. I just started finding my stride, so it's weird for me to leave, but I don't feel like my career is even close to over, man. I got a lot of good matches, and hopefully it'll work out." Read the full interview at WWE.com.
Powell's POV: Batista has a great attitude about the fans turning on him that comes through many times during the interview. It's a good read and he also discusses who he would like to work with, his ideal retirement match opponent, and much more.
