One of these topics had to do with his match at Wrestlemania 35 against Triple H. It turns out that Vince McMahon rejected their original pitch for the match.

Here is what Batista said:

“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.

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.”
