Batista was recently a guest on Talk Is Jericho where he revealed his favorite WWE match from his career and if he will return in the future. Below are some highlights from the interview with a H/T to WrestlingInc.com for the transcriptions.
On if he will return to WWE:
“My in-ring career is done,” Batista stated “If they invited me back to become a personality, say hi to the fans, cut a really bad promo (laughs), I would do it. Because I love professional wrestling, I just love it. But, I will not disrespect myself or my career and go back and wrestle.”
On his favorite WWE match:
“It was with Rey Mysterio at a house show in Mexico,” Batista revealed. “I begged and pleaded to get this match. We weren’t set up to work each other, but I was leaving the company, it was 2010-ish, I was really hot as a heel at this point and I felt it was my last chance to work Rey as a heel in Mexico, it’s the dream. We went and gave them a pay-per-view match. We went back and got a standing ovation. Rey kicked out of my finish, we gave them every bell and whistle we could think of. That’s what I wanted my career to be. I gave them their hero. I was really proud of that match.”
