** Has stated on Wrestling/ChrisJericho's podcast that Wrestling/VinceMcMahon fining him $100,000 for blading when Jericho beat him in a steel cage for the World Heavyweight Championship by knocking him off with a piece of the cage was the moment he realized the company's business had changed in a direction he didn't want to be a permanent fixture in anymore.

** Boxing superstar Manny Pacquiao, who Batista has publicly supported out of patriotism due to their common Filipino ties, once made pointed comments about homosexual sex. Batista, whose mother is homosexual, was so pissed off about Pacquiao's comments that he launched into a ClusterFBomb tirade when the topic came up on ''TMZ''.

* A slight one as Deacon Bautista. Being fought off by someone a third your size can deflate you, especially if it is ''before'' [[Wrestling/TrishStratus she became a multiple title holder who wrestled with a broken face and was just off valeting]].

* {{Badass}}: Except maybe Deacon Bautista, being fought off by someone a third your size can deflate you, especially if it is ''before'' she became a [[Wrestling/TrishStratus multiple title holder who wrestled with a broken face and was just off valeting]].
** BadassGrandpa: Yes, he ''is'' a RealLife grandfather. Not only that, he became one ''before he turned 40!''
** BadassInANiceSuit: A holdover from his time in Wrestling/{{Evolution}}, his promos frequently show him sharply dressed. With his penchant for pink dress shirts and ties, crosses over frequently with RealMenWearPink. Plays this straight nonetheless as Mr. Hinx.
** HandicappedBadass: He has asthma, but doesn't let it bring him down.

* HumiliationConga: The months after ''[=WrestleMania=] XXVI'' to his 4 year retirement could count as this right up to his last night. Also might qualify as a DownerEnding.

** BeardOfEvil: He also started sporting a pretty dark five-'o-clock shadow during his 2010 heel run (which he later grew back for ''Film/{{Spectre}}'').

** After repeatedly failing to beat John Cena for the world title, and getting injured in a match, he quit Wrestling/{{WWE}}. But that was only on Kayfabe, because he had later stated that he didn't like the direction in which the company was going.

Batista has been a longstanding detractor of the company's PG Rated mandate.

* TheScapegoat: For WWE's terrible booking. Dave himself outright admitted he knew that his return was not going to end well when he learned of their original plans, but he wasn't able to convince creative to scrap those plans until the backlash became too great to ignore. After time had passed and the fans looked at things more objectively, they began to feel apologetic that Batista had to take the heat and have his return ruined like that, but at the same time were unapologetic because it was the only way they had to get the company to listen them and change their plans and get Bryan on top. Dave became the FallGuy for their BS -- understandably, after he left to promote ''Guardians of the Galaxy'' and was offered tons of movie roles thanks to that film's success, he decided not to come back.
