Batista has worked hard to establish himself as one of the greatest Superstars in WWE’s history, but there were some toxic years. The Animal has seen great success in the company, becoming a multi-time World Champion before he became a megastar in Hollywood. He was also accused of insulting an ex-WWE diva recently.
The Animal never had a good relationship with former WWE Diva Shelly Martinez, who was known as Ariel on WWE’s ECW brand. Their beef eventually lead to her release in 2007.
While speaking to WSI’s James Romero, Shelly Martinez accused Batista of insulting her during WrestleMania 23 weekend in front of other wrestlers’ families.
“The hotel — they had a separate elevator that we can use so that the fans couldn’t have access to us. So I was in the elevator. It was a couple of wrestlers in there with their family and Dave [Batista]. I was like, ‘Oh, great,’ ’cause I was the first one to get off the elevator. I was like, ‘What am I supposed to say?’ So I said, ‘Okay bye everyone, have a good day.’ And as the doors were closing, he went, ‘D**chebag [coughs].’ I was like, ‘Come on!'”
