“I’m super sad about that, because Dave Bautista is an unbelievably gifted actor. He’s done some amazing work. But I think when someone makes a statement like that, I think the important thing is to try and look at things from their perspective.

“He really just wants to be identified and recognized for his work. And I cannot fault him for that. I applaud him for it. To be brave enough to say something like that kind of allows him to go forth on his own and I appreciate that. I don’t have any beef with Dave and I genuinely think he doesn’t have beef with me,”

Both Cena and Batista started their WWE careers around the same time. Their rise to the very top of the WWE also coincided with both of them winning the first World Championships of their career at WrestleMania 21 in 2005. Both of them have since proven to be reliable stars in Hollywood as well.

Batista may not want to work with Cena or anytime soon but WWE fans will hope that he may have a change of mind some day in the future.
