Back in 2019, Karrion Kross challenged Batista to a match at Bloodsport 2.
Taking to Twitter over the weekend, Kross recalled issuing the challenge at the event.
Despite fan interest for the bout to happen, Batista never responded. Kross wrote,
“Wild story here.
Had came off wrestling Moxley & heard Batista was in the building shooting a zombie film.
Was a huge fan of his growing up, bummed to hear he retired & thought he’d KILL it in Bloodsport.
Was hoping he’d return & would be honored to open that door.”
