Dave Batista - The Animal

Australia’s very own Herald and Weekly Times had the wonderful opportunity to interview Batista online yesterday. The Times got The Animal Batista to talk about his poverty-stricken childhood in Washington D.C. with a single, lesbian mother.

The interview detailed how Batista lived in a dangerous part of the city. Batista was quoted saying “We saw some bad things,” …. “We saw a couple of people die. There were fights all the time, stabbings were common. That’s all I knew. It didn’t seem out of the norm to me. Yes, there was a dead body in the alley, but I was still out there playing with my friends.”

Batista goes on to talk about how Batista and his mom eventually moved to San Francisco to get away from all the violence. Batista continues to openly talk about his mother being a lesbian. “I never had an issue with my mother’s sexuality. She loved us, she cared for us and that’s all that mattered,” he said. “She was with my dad for a small part of my life. After that, I don’t remember her having anything but girlfriends.

“I was terrified of girls. I had only been in long-term relationships,” he says.

He didn’t realise he was a sex addict.

Batista’s friend, the late wrestler Chris Benoit, told him it was a problem.

“I saw a lot of things out on the road — drink and drugs,” Batista says.

“I thought I didn’t have any issues. I felt fortunate. Then I realised.”
