Batista announces his retirement from professional wrestling

Former World Heavyweight champion Batista announced his retirement in a post on social media, just hours after losing the match against Triple H at WrestleMania.

“To all the WWE fans across the world that gave me the opportunity to suspend your disbelief, thank you. From the biggest part of my heart thank you for letting me entertain you,” Batista wrote. “Tonight was my story book ending and I wanted to leave you with all I had to give. I’ll miss this theater of violence more than I can express in words but I am officially retiring from Sports Entertainment.”

Batista always said that he wanted one final match at WrestleMania for his final bow out and requested it to be against Triple H. He had been chasing it for a while but finally it happened this year. And as the tradition always goes, you do the job on your way out…and that’s what the now-Hollywood actor did.

“I’m proud of what I’ve accomplished, I leave in great health, and without a doubt the show will go on. I had a hell of a run. Thank you for the journey!”
