Batista wrapped up his in-ring career at WrestleMania 35 and he did so the way he wanted to do it. Although not everything went according to plan like the famous “give me what I want” promo, Dave Bautista is quite happy with hanging up his boots.
While speaking to Chris Van Vliet, The Animal explained that his pro wrestling career is done. He doesn’t care what might happen next, no matter if he loses all of his money. The point is that he won’t be wrestling ever again.
“This is a real wrestling retirement. I am done. My in-ring career is over. I would love to go back on the show because I love the company and I believe in the product so I would go back and go on the show. If they ask me to go in the Hall of Fame I will. But I will not have another wrestling match. I will go broke before I have another wrestling match and I will not go and work for another promotion.”
Dave Bautista is very happy with his career’s current trajectory as he should be. No matter what happens he made it very clear that he won’t be wrestling again no matter who it’s for.
