Former WCW trainer reveals he turned down Batista after tryout


During an interview with SK Wrestling, former WCW trainer Buddy Lee Parker revealed he turned away WWE star Batista after a tryout at the WCW Power Plant Wrestling school.

You can see Parker’s comments below:

“You know what, WCW was set-up for training program there,” Parker recalled. “He did come for a tryout, I did run him off but I knew WCW was not going to take him like he was. I thought I did him a great favor going to WWE because I sent him to the Cincinnati – whatever their training ground is. But he still holds it against me. But all things looking at it, it was the best thing to happen for him.”
