NZPWI interviews Batista and Shane McMahon

NZPWI Editor Dion McCracken interviewed World Heavyweight Champion Batista and Executive Vice President of Global Marketing Shane McMahon today.

Batista spoke to Dion about the rigorous schedule he maintains as champion, how it felt to win the title at WrestleMania 21, and the passing of his close friend Eddie Guerrero. Dion presented Batista with “the largest All Black jersey ever made,” a gift the champ was thrilled to receive.

Shane McMahon talked about his famous crazy bumps and high spots, the possibilities concerning a new Raw General Manager, and even gave our soon-to-be-a-dad editor parenting advice.

The interviews, which were conducted in person, were filmed and the videos will be released on NZPWI later this week.

Also next week, NZPWI will be releasing interviews with Chris Benoit and WWE Diva Sharmell. The release schedule (subject to change) is as follows:

  • Monday: WWE Diva Sharmell
  • Wednesday: WWE Superstar Chris Benoit
  • Friday: Shane McMahon
  • Sunday: World Heavyweight Champion Batista
