Former WWE Superstar Batista did an interview with GQ to promote his new movie, Stuber.
In the interview, Batista talks about his desire to see The Undertaker used more effectively by WWE and even says that he jokingly tried to talk The Undertaker out of what ended up being a very bad match with Bill Goldberg at WWE Super Showdown:
I called, man. I called ‘Taker and said, “Is there any way I could change your mind?” He laughed, and I knew I couldn’t change his mind. He said it sounded good when we first started talking about it. I only saw highlights which were, you know, low lights. it was not good. It’s just bad circumstances all the way around. I feel like Taker’s there for the right reasons. I think he’s there because he still loves it. But I wish that they would utilize him in the right way. I think a novelty match with Goldberg is the wrong way. I just don’t think it’s good for anybody and especially it’s not good for the fans. I wouldn’t have gone to Saudi at all. I don’t care who they would’ve booked me with. I just would not have gone.
But I loved my final match at Wrestlemania, with Hunter [better known as Triple H]. The fans wanted to see two old guys go to war. That’s what we did. That’s the way the match was designed.
Dave Bautista also talked about his willingness to return to WWE in a non-wrestling capacity:
