Batista Talks Working with Bryan at WM30, His Return to the Company

new wwe logoIn a new interview conducted for WWE.com, Batista had the following to say regarding working with Daniel Bryan at WrestleMania 30:

"Oh, I was super excited," Batista said. "I was super excited, because, you know, we needed that element. Even speaking from a fan's standpoint, for me, it's hard to get sucked into a [bad guy vs. bad guy] match. We needed a hero, man, and Daniel Bryan was the biggest hero in the company. I knew this was gonna be good. It's so much better when the fans have an emotional investment. And they were so emotionally invested in Daniel Bryan, and they were so absorbed in their hatred for me that I knew it was gonna be good stuff."

Batista also had the following to say regarding his eventual WWE return:

"We've already been talking about that," he said. "We were talking about when I would come back before I even left. I don't feel like my career is over. I felt better leaving this time than when I got in, because I came in with an injury and I left feeling healthy as can be. It's hard for me to leave now because I feel like I was just hitting my stride. I think a lot of people forgot I was away from wrestling for four years, and it took me a couple months to really start getting in touch with the audience because it's a completely different audience, man. It was really weird for me at first. I just started finding my stride, so it's weird for me to leave, but I don't feel like my career is even close to over, man. I got a lot of good matches, and hopefully it'll work out."
