Batista talks about his favorite match from his career in wrestling.
Former 6-time WWE World Champion Batista put the final touches on his in-ring career at WrestleMania 35 with a match against WWE Hall Of Famer Triple H. Batista had called for the match with Triple H to happen for years and he received his wish after many attempts at getting said match. Batista logged in a decade in total as a part of WWE and out of the many matches he had in the company, he revealed that his favorite was against Rey Mysterio at a house show in Mexico in 2010.
Batista shared that information during his appearance on the Talk Is Jericho podcast and stated that he was on his way out of the company at the time and pleaded to have one last match with Rey in Mexico. Batista claims that he and Rey tore the house down and gave the fans a pay-per-view quality match.
“Yeah, it’s weird man. It was -- you’ll [Chris Jericho] get this, not a lot of people will get this, but it was with Rey Mysterio and it was at a house show in Mexico and the reason why -- I begged and pleaded to get this match. We weren’t set up to work each other but I was leaving the company and it was 2010-ish and I was really hot as a heel at this point, and I thought this was my last opportunity to be able to work Rey as a heel in Mexico." Batista continued, "It’s a dream, and I begged and pleaded for this match and I got it and we went and gave them a pay-per-view match. It only happens a few times but when you go back and the locker room is standing up, cheering -- how good does that feel? Yeah, but we went and Undertaker was back there and we gave them a pay-per-view match. Like Rey kicked out of my finish and everything. We gave them every bell and whistle we could think of and I just -- the crowd was just loving it and I felt like, that’s what I want my career to be like -- I gave them their hero. Like I was really proud of that match. We gave them a pay-per-view match.” He said.
"The Master Of The 619" is slated to return to WWE TV tonight after suffering a separated shoulder in June.
