Batista returned to the ring on Sunday night at WrestleMania 35 to compete against his friend-turned-enemy Triple H at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey. Triple H defeated Batista for the first-time in his career in a single’s match.

The stipulation for the match was if Triple H lost, it would mark the end of his in-ring competition. Despite having the most losses at WrestleMania, his career lives on

Before the win, Batista was 4-0 against Triple H in prior singles matches.

“To all the WWE fans across the world that gave me the opportunity to suspend your disbelief, thank you,” he wrote in an Instagram post. “From the biggest part of my heart, thank you for letting me entertain you. Tonight was my story book ending and I wanted to leave you with all I had to give. I’ll miss this theater of violence ore than I can express in words but I am officially retiring from Sports Entertainment.

“I’m proud of what I’ve accomplished, I leave in great health, and without a doubt, the show will go on. I had a hell of a run. Thank you for the journey.”

Triple H defeated Batista in a No Holds Barred Match near the end of the main card. Triple H received an assist from Ric Flair to help extend his in-ring career in the brutal match.

This was their first battle since WWE Vengeance on June 26, 2005 when Batista defeated Triple H for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship in a Hell in a Cell match. Batista also defeated Triple H on WWE Monday Night Raw on June 13, 2005.

In the two other matches, Batista won on May 1st, 2005 at WWE Backlash for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship. Batista gained the WWE World Heavyweight Championship over Triple H at WrestleMania 31 on April 3, 2005.
