    Cool batista interview

    credit thesun.co.uk

    The star, who is now carving out a successful acting career with a role in Scorpion King 3, says he left the business after WWE decided to take a more child-friendly direction.

    In an exclusive interview, The Animal told SunSport: "I don't keep up with wrestling that much these days.

    "The reason I left was the PG direction the company took, it got too corny for me. I was a hug fan of the edgy era of DX, Stone Cold Steve Austin and those guys. The change in direction really ruined it for me.

    "It's well recorded I'm not a fan of the likes of John Cena or The Miz. It's such a different company these days and not in a good way."

    In a world where everyone always seems to return to the WWE eventually Batista is not ruling out following the likes of Chris Jericho and making an in-ring comeback.

    But he does insist things would have to get more grown-up again before he'd consider it.

    He said: "I've no plans to return anytime soon. I was offered the job of working on Tough Enough, I just didn't think it was for me. I hear it went well with Steve Austin and good luck to them.

    "I need to be excited by a project and I didn't feel that way about Tough Enough.

    "If I did return to the WWE, it would be for a run not just a one-shot deal.

    "I'd have to be a constant for them not someone who drifts in and out to boost ratings. If I did I'd love to work with Triple H again or Undertaker.

    "They are the best workers there in my opinion and they'd make it worthwhile to return.

    "The show would have to change though, so I can't see my return being anytime soon can you?

    "But, you know, I pretty much did it all. My favourite wrestling moments are not necessarily my best ones, they are however the ones that mean most to me.

    "My first World Title win meant a lot to me, winning the tag team titles with Ric Flair is up there too.

    "I can't complain about the matches I had and the people I faced, I had an amazing time in the WWE."

    Looking at other wrestling companies such as TNA, ROH and New Japan, Batista added: "For me, the WWE is the number one wrestling organisation.

    "I'd hate to end my career somewhere that's a step down. If I go out, I go out on top and working for the company on top."

    The star, whose real name is Dave Bautista, is concentrating on the world of film instead his latest big budget flick is The Scorpion King 3: Battle for Redemption.

    However he insists that he'll never forget his wrestling roots.

    Dave told us: "I'm trying to learn the craft of acting, coaching and getting advice from my co-stars.

    "Scorpion King 3 was an exciting and very positive experience. My role is a pivotal one and it was good to work with such talented guys as Billy Zane and Ron Perlman. The whole cast helped me greatly.

    "I would love to try comedy one day, but I firmly believe at heart I'm a wrestler and I act, I'm not trying to distance myself from that.

    "Wrestling is what gave me these opportunities."

    Batista bitching about PG gets annoying. Shut the fuck up Dave, you were never "edgy" enough to warrant them staying 14. Actually, Cena's edgiest gimmick was far more so than anything he's ever done in his career.

    If Steve Austin was complaining about PG its one thing, since his character was one that didn't lend itself to PG. But the edgiest thing Batista ever did was be apart of Evolution's titantron video in which the Evolution members were getting freaky with some of the girls -- and Batista wasn't one of them!

    The funny thing is that Austin has actually been vocally supportive of it.

    Batista was a big star and accomplished a lot, but the guy was hand fed by Triple H. I don't think Batista would have become a big star any other way other than having a feud with Triple H. It's one of those "right guys, right time" scenarios.

    Meh, fuck Batista. Bad in the ring, can't even cut a good promo for shit. Only reason he was over was because of the amazing booking that gave him is push.

    MOGUNS and Pete were far, far too literate to be Batista, though.

    I can understand why he feels that way--he liked the Attitude Era more, and it's what attracted him to wrestling, even if he himself wasn't all that edgy. (Even if he had his moments, like with Melina.) Although Batista was someone who could have been right at home (though not as a main attraction) in the Attitude Era.

    Of course he supports it, the thing he hates is the scripted promos and the piss poor creative that the WWE has been pushing throughout the past few years. Every time someone asks him about a storyline or feud, Austin always criticizes it, "I think they really could have done the creative on that a lot better". And he makes some very valid points.

    I don't know what Batistas beef is. If I makeing the kind of money he was getting pay I not going to care if its PG 14 or just PG.

    I don't understand Batista to be honest. I mean he was apart of the whole change to begin with in 2005 with Cena. He's lucky Orton was too green for his push at the time and the fans wanted HHH's head for turning on Orton the way he did(if Orton was anything like today back then Batista would still be carrying HHH's bags). I always hear some people say Hogan was right guy at right time which is wrong imo for many reasons, but Batista fits that statement. I'm saying this and I had no real issues with Batista when he was around as I just seen him as being limited, but used his hype and skill the best he could.

    BTW, I agree Batista was never edgier than Cena even pre-rapper days. Is he forgetting his gimmick when he came in? Attitude Era was long gone and he stuck around for that I think he's trying to score points with the attitude era Austin/Rock fans. He may have been a fan, but the company's direction sure didn't resemble that Attitude Era(Ruthless Aggression more like it).
