In recent months, WWE fans have become accustomed to CM Punk venting his frustration at the organization using social media. This weekend, though, it was the turn of another former member of the main roster.

Dave Bautista, aka Batista, took to Twitter over the weekend to lash out at WWE and the decisions that are being made by the company.

Lashing out

And, in doing so, the former Superstar-turned-Hollywood star effectively revealed his retirement from the WWE altogether.

Taking to Twitter, the 46-year-old suggested his career was "over" after what appeared to be a rather embarrassing situation:

Batista hasn't been seen in the WWE ring since summer 2014, after quitting the business due to 'creative differences.' Indeed, over the past 12 months he has used his 6 ft 6 inch, 278-pound frame in the movie business instead.

Still, having said back in April that a WWE return was possible in the future, the door had remained open. Now, though, it looks like it has been firmly shut.


And, in answering a fan's response to his original message, it is clear the former WWE Superstar still harbors resentment toward those making the decisions:

Oh, and before you thought CM Punk would allow another wrestler to steal his 'WWE-hate' thunder, the Chicago native managed to have the last say when quoting Batista's own tweet.

Former employees

It is clear that there are plenty of former members of the WWE roster who are unhappy with the way the company is run.

Unfortunately for them, and the fans, it doesn't look like Vince McMahon and co. are about to overhaul the creative team anytime soon - even with WWE ratings dropping in recent months.
