It's safe to say that Batista's return to the WWE hasn't been the smoothest of sailing.
The man himself has gone as far as to admit it in a recent interview with the Washington Post as a build up to Wrestle Mania.
Ever since his return to the organization a few months ago after winning the Royal Rumble, the 45-year old has been roundly booed near enough every single time he has taken to the ring.
“They told me that I was going to come back and be this huge babyface," he told David Malitz.
"I said, ‘no, it’s not going to work.’ They said, ‘no way, they’re dying for you to come back.’ I said, ‘that’s going to last two minutes, just watch.’ And sure enough it did.”
Despite not being bothered by any of the times he is meet with a negative reaction, Bautista did say that he thinks the fans are being idiots during shows and are desperate for their 15 minutes of fame.
“They used to want to interact with the show, but now the crowd almost wants to be the show," he went on to say."
"Well, if you wanna be the show, take your a– to wrestling school, just like I did, just like everybody else here who is busting their a– and actually become part of the show! Don’t just sit in the audience and try to randomly steal the show.”
The battle between fans and writers is personified by the man that is Daniel Bryan.
Bryan is loved by the fans and his "YES!" chant is one of the most talked about things right now and is expanding into other sports.
But the writers were too slow to pick up on this and they have hurriedly rushed to get him a match against Triple H at Mania this weekend when they originally didn't have anything big planned for him.
But Batista will still be booed no matter what. Not even a team up with Bryan could save him.
