Batista recently spoke with Chad Dukes of CBS Radio Washington
DC 106.7 The Fan, here are the highlights…
On Roman Reigns & The Shield: “I thought they were pushing him a bit too soon.
The guy’s obviously, he’s a huge star, he’s gonna be a huge star. I feel like if
they push him out there before he’s ready, it’s gonna put a fizzle on
everything, man, I’d just hate to see that. This is just my opinion, but I think
they should have kept [the Shield] together a little bit longer. Let ’em have
that babyface run just a little bit longer.”
On Returning as a
Babyface: “I’ll be honest with you, I
just don’t want it. I love being a heel, man, you know that. That’s what I love
to do, man. I think I’m the guy that people love to boo and I’m okay with that
and I love being heel. I’m the worst babyface in the history of wrestling.
[Laughs] I’m just not good at it. When you do promos sometimes you gotta say
things that people wanna hear instead of telling them things they should hear.
You know it’s hard for me to be that guy always saying the politically correct
thing. I just don’t like it I’m not comfortable with it.”
