Batista has now retired from the wrestling business following his loss to Triple H at WrestleMania 35, since The Animal is now concentrating on his thriving acting career.

It was rumored for a long time that the former World Champion would make his return to face The Game at WrestleMania after there were teases on SmackDown’s 1000th episode back in 2018. Triple H then suffered a pectoral injury at Crown Jewel as part of his main event match against The Undertaker and Kane, which left the match up in the air.

Ric Flair’s 70th Birthday celebrations then took over Raw earlier this year which allowed Batista to make his return and set up a match with Triple H at WrestleMania. While their match did have a fantastic build and aside from a few awkward moments, was definitely one that stood out on the night, it could have been very different.

Batista recently joined Chris Jericho on the Talk Is Jericho Podcast where he revealed that he actually pushed for the match to be a Hell In A Cell match, but Vince McMahon wasn’t a fan of the idea.

“Originally, we wanted a have a Hell In A Cell but Vince, because of the pay-per-view, he didn’t want to have a Hell In A Cell, and we really wanted Hell In A Cell,” he said via Sportskeeda.

Batista went on to explain that he thought the feud deserved a violent end, even though Triple H was able to pull out his nose ring with a pair of plyers, it could have been so much more.

“They’re just great matches… they’re violent. We needed bells and whistles. We’re two older guys, we hadn’t wrestled in a long time and we needed the drama. We’ve already got the history, so we just needed the violence.”
