Batista opens up on wanting to face Triple H in his final match



Former WWE World Heavyweight Champion Batista spoke about a wide range of pro wrestling related topics when he joined Lilian Garcia’s podcast. During the interview, he talked about why he wanted to have his last match against a certain name.

“The Animal” shared the squared circle with Triple H in a No Holds Barred Match at WrestleMania 35 in East Rutherford, NJ at MetLife Stadium on the WWE Network. Batista lost the match and announced his retirement just a few hours after the event.

Batista would elaborate about how he wanted it to be with someone he was familiar with and had a backstory with after a few years away from the ring. Also, he wanted to give back to WWE and thought Triple H fit that role well.

“I felt like my career really got started when I started working with Triple H. I never have been around the bush about it, Hunter made me a star,” admitted Batista. “He put a lot of stock into me. He invested a lot into me and put himself on the line physically for me. Not only did he put me over three times clean in the ring to make me a star, but also took the time to have me ride with him and have me pick his brain. He just groomed me to be a star in that company, so I wanted to finish out my career for him by just saying thank you to go out laying on my back for the guy.

“That is what I have always believed. It is the old school belief that I have, when you go out you go out on your back. If you go out and build a star do that, and obviously, Hunter is already a star, but I wanted my last match to be with him on my back, because that is literally the only way that I can thank him.”
