Batista Talks Hating The Streak Ending, Best Rib Ever Pulled On Him, If Sting Will Wrestle In WWE
Source: The Huffington Post UKThe Huffington Post has an interview with Batista, who was promoting Guardians of the Galaxy. Here are a few highlights from the interview:
The best rib that's been pulled on him:
"I'm not the biggest ribber, so this is not so much of a rib but as you know, I made my WWE debut alongside Devon. I was a rookie and - I learned this the hard way - sometimes you should just keep your mouth shut. I made a bet with him when we were somewhere in New Mexico, because Devon was notoriously late, I told him that if he beat me to the show that I'd run around the building naked. Even though I hadn't really meant it, he picked up on it and ran with it. So he ended up winning the bet, of course, and I was going to keep to my word and run around the building naked. One of the WWE producers vetoed the idea but I was the rookie and obligated to suck it up. So I was at his mercy and the trade for the naked run was that I had to do 25 individual push-ups whenever and wherever he told me to. After each push up I had to scream out 'I'm Devon's b***h'. I did them - I think he let me out of about five of them because he eventually just felt so bad. But I did them in random places - it was on planes, it was in restaurants....."
The Undertaker's streak ending:
It sucked! Honestly, I thought it sucked. I haven't really talked much about it but I think it was a bad decision, a horrible decision. I don't have any say in the matter but to me, watching as a fan, it made me sick. Brock Lesnar beating him didn't seem to work and it really wasn't good that Brock left the day after. I just don't see how that made sense at all. I don't think anyone wanted to see the streak broken and it just didn't make sense to me.
If Sting will wrestle in WWE soon:
"I don't know - you know, they've been talking about that for years. I've never even met him. But I hope so. I think he's got a place there. But they need to do it soon because the audience is changing so much that if they wait any longer, the audience is going to be a bunch of kids and when he comes out they're going to chant CM Punk!"
Batista also talked more about Guardians of the Galaxy, if he'd like to see the Guardians join the Avengers, who to look out for from NXT, why fans booed him, Jeff Jarrett's GFW and more. You can check out the full interview by clicking here.
