Kurt Angle was not the only wrestler that retired from wrestling at WrestleMania 35. It has now been announced that we've seen the last of Batista too wrestling inside the squared circle.

As you may know already, Batista lost his match to Triple H at WrestleMania 35 in an action packed 'No Holds Barred' match. He then announced his retirement over on Twitter. You can read his announcement posted down below.

"@WWEUniverse Thank you for letting me entertain you. I love this business and whether you cheered me or jeered me, I’m grateful for being a small part of your life. I am officially retired from sports entertainment and I am grateful for every second of my amazing journey."

This is to be expected because Batista said in an interview few years ago that we would have liked to have retired against Triple H in his last ever wrestling match.

Now that he got his wish, Batista can retire and concentrate fully on his growing acting career.

It's a little interesting Batista was able to retire on top, but Kurt Angle had to settle for Baron Corbin on the exact same night.

Fans can still see Batista on the big screen, but this is the last we will see him inside of a wrestling ring.

As for Triple H, it looks like we will see him still wrestle for the foreseeable future. He's still involved behind the scenes too so it will be a long time until we see him retire from WWE.
