WWE: Batista Speaks on Khali, Benoit, & Vince McMahon

Batista has an interview with the U.K. Sun where he comments on fellow WWE superstars, including Melina, Randy Orton, Vince McMahon, Chris Benoit and The Great Khali. Regarding his relationship with Melina, he said, "It started out completely innocently, but I just fell in love with her. It’s been on and off for a long time and I still love her death. But I can’t see us getting married. I still don’t think I’m over my ex-wife." Regarding Randy Orton, he said that his ex-Evolution partner "was lost for a while." Batista said, "I told Randy I’m so proud of him, he’s finally found himself as a person and as a wrestler. He was lost for a while, he didn’t know who he was or who his character was. I think he’s going to carry this business for a long time." Batista also gives his take on Chris Benoit: "We were very close. It’s a pretty big statement, but I always tell people Chris was the most honourable man I’ve ever met up until the day he killed his family." His take on Vince McMahon: "He’s just a regular guy. Everybody’s terrified of him at first, but Vince wants you to be comfortable with him. He’s very intimidating, especially when he’s p***ed at you, but at the same time he doesn’t make you feel like he’s your boss." Batista made some interesting remarks on The Great Khali. He said seeing him hold the World Title made him sick to his stomach. Batista said, "I didn’t think he deserved the World Championship. I don’t want to say it made me sick to my stomach to see the title in his hands, but it really did make me sick to my stomach."
