When we think of WWE, a lot of us think of Vince McMahon. The two just go hand and hand. But it is not necessarily for a good reason.

WWE fans love to hate their chairman and McMahon doesn't mind being hated. But what McMahon does care about is control.

McMahon's addiction 

Even at the age of 69, McMahon is not going to retire, at least according to reports, and he loves to have the final say on practically everything.

WrestleMania 30 was a prime example as McMahon flipped the script on the day to see The Undertaker lose his WrestleMania streak to Brock Lesnar.

McMahon has a desire for control and if anybody gets in his way they will feel his wrath.
And superstar wrestler Batista revealed as much in the past week.

Batista's interview  

The powerful wrestler is currently on hiatus from the company because of his burgeoning movie career which saw him star recently in blockbuster film Guardians of the Galaxy.

Batista has been around lately promoting that movie and he also sat down with Chris Jericho on his podcast, Talk is Jericho, in the past week. 

It was a pretty frank and honest interview with Batista revealing many issues about the WWE which make the company look bad.

He complained about the creative team, but it was his comments on McMahon which proved the most interesting.

Batista has always been uncomfortable with WWE's decision to go PG, and he revealed a time when he locked horns with McMahon over his decision to shed blood in the ring, which prompted a huge fine from McMahon.

Revealing comments 

"This was a point where we weren't shedding blood any more," Batista recalled. "We were PG and that didn't make any sense to me. I just didn't want to hear that, especially when there's a title match involved," Batista told Jericho.

The comments are regarding the match below in which Batista drew blood and felt the wrath of McMahon as a result. 

It is understood that Jericho rang up McMahon about the incident in the match, but all that Jericho got was a message from Vince to "shut up and ***k off."

"Then he starts passing out fines," added Batista on Talk is Jericho. "So my fine was $100,000. My heart dropped. I thought it would be like $25,000. When he said $100,000, I was just heartbroken. I literally think that he sucked the life out of me that day. I think that's the day that I knew things were never going to be the same."
