¬†Batista On CM Punk’s Departure:

“I know for a fact that he loves professional wrestling… I couldn’t see him taking a step down and wrestling for a lesser organization. Unless he spent some time in Japan, I just don’t see it.”

“I think eventually he’ll come back. I think he belongs there. I think the fans really love him and miss him.

“I think he loves it and misses it just as much. I’m really not sure why he left.

Batista On Which Former Shield Member Wins Gold First:

I think Roman [Reigns]… I think right off the bat… we knew that they had big plans for Roman, I think he’s going to be the first guy to see the ‘top of the totem pole’.”

Batista On Taking Advantage Of The Streak:

” I think obviously they need to do something with Brock… if they don’t capitalize on that then they’re idiots.”
