During an appearance on Talk Is Jericho, Batista vented his frustrations about WWE when he was asked if he missed WWE.
“Yeah, I miss it a lot. … There’s nothing like it, you know that. There’s just an adrenaline rush that goes along with it. What I don’t miss is the company, to be honest with you. I don’t miss WWE. I miss wrestling, I just don’t miss dealing with the company and its bullshit. Yeah it’s the bullshit man, it’s just too much bullshit.”
When Jericho mentions his surprise that WWE hasn’t wanted him to come around to do something, Batista made the following remarks:
“I’ve asked, yeah, I’ve asked. Well, there’s… I’ve asked for what I want. I’ll tell you and I’ve talked to Hunter about it and I’ve talked to Vince about it. I said I would come back and run a whole program with Hunter. That’s the only thing I’m interested in doing. They’re just not interested in it, you know?”
When Jericho wants to clarify that “they don’t want you to come back and work with Hunter,” Batista mentioned that he believes that’s the case.
“I guess not. They just… I’ve run it by them a few different times and they just say ‘yeah, we’ll think about it.’ That’s every time I ask them about it. ‘Yeah, I’ll think about it.'”
Batista continued to talk about how he wouldn’t want to work with anyone except for Triple H.
“At this point, no, because it would be my retirement thing. It would be what I would go out on. I would come back and I’d do a whole program and then I’d be done.”
