Batista: “I’m actually retired”

Apr 20, 2021 - by Steve Gerweck

While speaking at Justice Con, Batista was asked to address his WWE in-ring status. He made it very clear that he has no intention of returning to the squared circle.

He said “Don’t put that out there, people will jump all over that. ‘He’s coming out of retirement!’ No, I’m not. It’s so hard to convince people that I’m actually retired. You have no idea how tough that discussion is. When a professional wrestler retires, they don’t really retire, they kind of retire. If the paycheck or event is big enough, they’ll come out of retirement. It’s just not that way with me.”

    He’s retired until Vince waves with a check that’s big enough.
    You can’t believe most guys if they say they are retired.

    @Hans Maulwurf
    It’s a pretty safe bet he’s not gonna come back for the money, whatever Vince offers him would be much less than what he’s making right now.
