Batista est présentement en tournée de promotion pour la sortie du film Final Score, qui paraîtra cette semaine. “The Animal” a accordé une entrevue à What Culture, que vous retrouvez ci-bas, dans laquelle il a mentionné qu’il aimerait revenir à la WWE et qu’il y pense tous les jours.
“I have to say that it’s something I think about daily,” Batista admitted. “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.”
Celui qui aura 50 ans en janvier prochain mentionne vouloir revenir quand le timing sera optimal et contre l’adversaire idéal. Il rajoute que lors de son dernier retour, il n’a pas reçu les choses qui lui avaient été promis. Il dit être en pleine forme et qu’il aimerait que son retour ait lieu dans la prochaine année, puisqu’il ne veut pas être le “vieux” sur le ring.
“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.”
“I told them next year would be my last year,” Batista said. “I’m turning 50 next year, I’d be willing to. I feel great. Physically, I’m in great shape. I’ve never let up on that. But I just don’t want to be the old guy in the ring and I don’t want to overstay my welcome. I just want to end my career the right way and next year will be the last opportunity, so if we can’t make something happen by next year, then I’m just gonna officially hang it up.”
