As noted earlier, Batista was in attendance at Wednesday night’s Strikeforce: Los Angeles event. Dave spoke with a news reporter at the event about leaving WWE. He stated that he left the company because he was unhappy with the direction the company was going, and that it wasn’t the wrestling that he enjoyed (mentioning the Rock/Austin era).
Batista also noted that he did not see himself going back anytime soon, but he did not rule it out. Batista said that he was in LA looking for work, and that he was unemployed.
Batista has shown interest in MMA, and has done some training, but at his age, going into an MMA career isn’t very likely.
