Batista Tried Talking The Undertaker Out Of Working WWE Super ShowDown

Batista The Undertaker

Bautista spoke with GQ while promoting his new film Stuber to talk about a wide range of topics including The Undertaker. 

This is where the future WWE Hall of Famer expressed his take about the way that WWE has used “The Deadman” specifically his most-recent match.

The match between Goldberg and The Undertaker at the WWE Super ShowDown pay-per-view event that had received a ton of criticism from fans. 

Batista brought up how he tried to talk Taker out of the match and Taker laughed at it, which is when Batista knew he couldn’t change his mind. Taker said it sounded good when they 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.”

WWE has announced a tag team match that will see The Undertaker and Roman Reigns vs. Shane McMahon & Drew McIntyre taking place at the Extreme Rules pay-per-view event.
