It seems like almost every week, former WWE superstars are presenting their own versions of just what it is like to work in the WWE.

With the departures of stars like CM Punk, Rey Mysterio and Cody Rhodes, several very negative accounts of the company have been created.

Even more horror stories

Now another former WWE Champion has come forward as the Animal Batista has been talking about his time with the company.

Batista was talking on the MLW Writers' Room Podcast, Batista has revealed harrowing tales from his two stints in the company.

The Animal reveals stories about Stephanie McMahon and Triple H, the fall of the Shield and of course stories about Vince McMahon.

Claiming that he was arguing with Vince and the creative team on a daily basis, he also claimed that during his return in 2014, he wanted to re-enter the WWE as a heel.

Instead the WWE had him return as a face and go on to win the Royal Rumble - a victory that was met with mass hostility from the fans.

After his departure in 2014, Batista tells it that he wanted to return for Summer Slam and help to promote his film the Guardians of the Galaxy.

That idea was however rebuffed by Triple H and Stephanie who supposedly claimed that they 'didn't even know if the movie was going to be any good'.

Tales of him being pulled from movie auditions because the WWE owned him and even breaking his back in his final match against John Cena all paint a very negative picture.

Arguably the saddest story however, is that on his final day during his first stint with the company, Batista claims that no-one even said good bye to him.

Shield reunion.

Batista touched on the topic of the Shield and their eventual demise - the same night that he seemingly quit the company for the second time.

We will see the three members of the Shield in the ring together at Battleground but according to Batista, he thinks that they should have been allowed to continue on as a faction for a bit longer.

The Shield overcame Evolution at Payback 2014 and according to Batista, that made them look like "a million bucks" and that should have been allowed to continue.
