Former WWE superstar Batista was recently interviewed by The Sports Daily where he discussed a number of topics. Among them were why he left WWE and if he thought it was a smart move or not.
Below are some highlights from the interview:
On why Batista left WWE for Hollywood:
“It came about out of spite. First I have to say it came from me discovering I was a horrible actor and I wanted to be a better actor and I wanted to do it while I was still with WWE. They wouldn’t give me the opportunity within the company so I said that I should be given the opportunity to do it outside of the company and they said absolutely not.”
On if he thought it was a good decision:
“It was brave, maybe a little stupid. It was three years of me barely working. You know, it was a nice thing with the WWE, I made a very good living there, I was very comfortable and I could’ve stuck with that. But I wanted to do something else.”
