Back in 2013, former WWE Diva Shelly Martinez said the following about Dave Batista:

ďBatista and I had an aggressive conversation backstage and he said something that were unnecessary and uncalled for. If it was outside of wrestling, Iím pretty sure it could have been a legal problem for both Batista and WWE. But this is wrestling, and itís a manís business, so I fired back and they fired me. I was just a vampire girl in the fake ECW; he was Batista, and they wanted to accommodate him.Ē

In a new interview with VOC Nation Wrestling with History, Martinez talked more about her issues with Batista:

ďThe name Batista used to have a different association with me. And itís so crazy because throughout the years I always had these recurring dreams about him. And in these dreams, the common denominator is, heís trying to help me. And what Iíve realized is, my little situation with Batista was like, the last nail in my coffin [in WWE]. I realize now they fired me ó I used to think it was solely about that, but I realize, no, that was just the [final] nail in the coffin. So that actually did protect me because without really getting into it, Iím very grateful for my experiences in the WWE, both good, bad and everything in the middle. But thatís just not a place for my soul, and thatís not just a place for me. And Iím okay, like, Iím totally fine with that. Iím [not] like, ĎOh, F that place,í like whatever. Iím just saying, Iím not down with that kind of work environment and everything that comes with it. So itís so crazy how that whole thing went down. I remember lawyers approaching me when all that happened like, ĎYou want to sue them?í And all this. You know, and I would always tell them, ĎGod will deal with them.í And I know for some people thatís a lame answer, rolling eyes answer. But now more than ever, I totally get that. And itís cool because when I used to say it, I just said what was in my heart. I didnít really understand it, but now I do. And you know what, if for some strange reason Dave Batista hears this or gets wind of this Ö thank you dude, thanks. You did me a big favor, and I really appreciate it.Ē
