Former WWE Heavyweight Champion and "Guardians of the Galaxy" star Dave Bautista revealed that he had engaged in talks with WWE bosses Vince McMahon and Triple H about making his final run as a pro-wrestler.

Bautista, who is also known by his pro-wrestling name as the Animal Batista, told WWE superstar Chris Jericho on his podcast "Talk is Jericho’" about his attempt to make another comeback in the squared circle.

Batista vs. Triple H

Bautista disclosed that he pitched an idea to McMahon and Triple H about running a program/feud with his former Evolution stablemate, but the WWE executives appeared uninterested in pulling the trigger on what would be the final wrestling run for Batista.

"I've asked, yeah, I've asked.

Well, there's... I've asked for what I want. I'll tell you and I've talked to Hunter about it and I've talked to Vince about it. I said I would come back and run a whole program with Hunter. That's the only thing I'm interested in doing. They're just not interested in it, you know,?" Batista said.

Despite expressing his frustrations with WWE and its backstage politics, Batista admitted he missed his life as a professional wrestler, especially his in-ring interactions with fans.

Chris Jericho’s Farewell

Last week’s episode of "SmackDown" served as the end of Chris Jericho’s latest run in the WWE. The first undisputed WWE champion had entertaining programs with A.J Styles, Seth Rollins, Roman Reigns and Kevin Owens and also popularized the iconic ‘List of Jericho.’

Many wrestling scribes even considered it the best run Jericho ever had in his pro-wrestling career, lauding his effort for reinventing new gimmick everytime he returns from hiatus.

Jericho, who added the United States championship to his long list of titles, also thinks his recent WWE run was up there with his program with Shawn Michaels, Rey Mysterio and partnership with Jeri-Show.

'Was this the best run of my career' that's not for me to answer, it's for the fans and the people who watch the shows to decide. It's definitely one of my favorites, top two along with the Shawn Michaels feud and that era of Shawn Michaels, Rey Mysterio, Big Show was my partner,” Jericho said in an interview with Busted Open.

Jericho rejoined his band Fozzy on Wednesday to officially kick off their Judas Tour Live. And despite rumors about Jericho’s retirement, the 46-year old superstar is expected to make his comeback later this year, per Cageside Seats.
