Batista discussed his return to WWE in a new interview with The Chad Dukes Wrestling Show. In it, he said he left the company in 2010 for "very specific reasons" because his deal was too constrictive. He said there were certain guys getting opportunities he wasn't getting and he wasn't cool with that. Batista reaffirmed he always wanted to come back and he got to accomplish what he wanted to accomplish while away.
Batista said he didn't demand a lot of money for limited WWE dates either. He agreed to come back and work live events as well as Smackdown. He also talked about being selective when choosing movie roles during his hiatus from pro wrestling.
