Dave Bautista Opens Up On Why He Wanted To Face Triple H In His Final Match At WRESTLEMANIA

Dave Bautista officially announced his retirement from pro wrestling after WrestleMania and in a new interview, The Animal weighs in on what led to him deciding to choose Triple H as his final opponent.

Dave Bautista returned to the squared circle at WrestleMania last weekend for an entertaining Falls Count Anywhere match against Triple H which he ultimately lost after a distraction from Ric Flair and a Pedigree from The Game. Now, The Animal has explained why Triple H was his top choice of opponent for what would be his final bout. 

"I felt like my career really got started when I started working with Triple H," he explained. "I never have been around the bush about it, Hunter made me a star. He put a lot of stock into me. He invested a lot into me and put himself on the line physically for me. Not only did he put me over three times clean in the ring to make me a star, but also took the time to have me ride with him and have me pick his brain."

"He just groomed me to be a star in that company, so I wanted to finish out my career for him by just saying thank you to go out laying on my back for the guy."

"That is what I have always believed,"
he continued. "It is the old school belief that I have, when you go out you go out on your back. If you go out and build a star do that, and obviously, Hunter is already a star, but I wanted my last match to be with him on my back, because that is literally the only way that I can thank him."

It's easy to see where Bautista is coming from and while Triple H didn't exactly need the rub, it was still a great moment and a nice finish to their story.
