It wrestlinINC.com who reported what the superstars thinks of his last time in 2014 when he returned and forced to departed as “bluetista”.
Batista accepted that his run in WWE in 2014 was nothing but a failure. He wanted to start as a heel since he has the idea that fans would not jell with him well as a face. But, WWE creative was in total opposition from his opinion and so he had no option but to start fresh as a babyface. It was Mr. McMahon who thought that people would love him as he was the popular one.

That year Daniel Bryan or CM Punk was the favorite to win. Soon realizing the fact, Bryan was inserted into the title picture. But they were a little bit late and Punk already left the company. Though WWE fought back by giving the fans Daniel Bryan, Batista had to leave soon without making any mark to the fans.
