Batista Didn't Expect "Give Me What I Want" Promo To Blow Up

Batista got what he want... well, kind of. 

Batista already mentioned that he and Triple H didn't practice their WrestleMania 35 match ahead of time for fear of re-injuring HHH, but they also didn't plan the meme-worthy "give me what I want" promo. When speaking to Chris Van Vliet of WSVN-TV, the retired wrestler opened up about the process of the now famous segment.

"We didn't really figure it out, we didn't talk about it, it wasn't written out. So there were certain things we were looking for in that promo and there was something that I hadn't said so he kept dragging it out and I wasn't sure what it was so I have to keep escalating because once I went there, I couldn't go back. So that's why I kept screaming it louder and louder. I'm waiting for his cue and he's waiting for my cue and we just weren't getting there and finally it dawned on me that I needed to say something in that promo and I can't remember exactly what it was. That's why it kept getting bigger and bigger and bigger. It wasn't intentional," said Batista.

Now that his wrestling career is over, his movie career continues, with Stuber releasing in July. He's already been a part of a half-dozen films that have hit $100M at the box office, and looks to do the same with an original concept for the first time.
