Dave Bautista was recently interviewed by WhatCulture Wrestling to promote his new film, "Final Score". During the interview, Batista spoke about a potential return to WWE and what would need to happen in order for him to come back.
"The Animal" says he misses wrestling everyday, but for a WWE return he would need it to happen at the right time and against the right opponent:
“I have to say that it’s something I think about daily. I miss it daily. I love it, I have a passion for wrestling. I feel that at the core of me that’s just who I am. I’m a physical performer, and I miss it every day. I think, one, it would have to be the right time, and two, it would have to be the right opponent.
"That’s pretty much it, and it would have to make sense,” Batista said. “Yeah, I think the last time I went back was with really good intentions and I felt like I wasn’t delivered what I was promised and that was just creatively.
"So, that would be it, I’d have to have a strong say of what I did and who I worked with. It would have to make sense as far as time, not only do I have to be free, but I also have to factor in there is a risk that I would be injured.
"If I got injured I would need some time to rehabilitate myself, so I always kind of factor those things in.”
