Chasing Glory Recap w/ Batista – WrestleMania Comeback, Looking for Closure in WWE, Working out Match with Triple H, More!
He tried not to take the fan reactions personally during that last run, but it really did hurt him. He wanted to be a heel during that run and McMahon wanted him to be a babyface, and it simply didn’t work. He says it killed him to have to leave when he did to promote Guardians of the Galaxy.
Speaking of Guardians, Garcia asked Batista about the upcoming Avengers: Endgame film. Batista says he honestly doesn’t know how much of the film he’s going to be in. He knows he will be in the film at some point, but doesn’t know which scenes or how much his character will be used. He has 4 movies coming out this year, and Guardians of the Galaxy 3 will be happening as well.
Batista says his marriage fell apart recently and that’s been hard on him. He really loved his wife but they simply became different people and drifted apart. He’s looking forward to spending more time with his son in the future however.
Batista says he’s not sure if he can compare his rise in Hollywood to The Rock. He points out that there’s something special about Rock and he’s on another level. He doesn’t think anyone can really be compared to Rock. He notes that he’s also looking for different roles than we see from Rock. Batista loves drama and takes pride in being able to portray a variety of characters.
