Batista took to Twitter last to comment on Finlay's departure from WWE earlier this year.

"So I'm going to say this because I said I would elaborate later....and I'm sure I'll get some grief over it but I don't realy care. and this is completely the opinion of an outsider looking in," Batista wrote.

"I only know what I've been told about Fit Finlay's release and I dont know exactly what happened...but no one in this world could convince me that Fit, the honorable man that he is, did anything that would warrant him losing his livelihood. I wouldn't have made it to the top without fit, and I wouldn't have made it through alot of the longass unbearable tours either.

"I seriously think that there's a huge void in the WWE without him. He isn't replaceable."

Finlay was fired from his producer's after authorizing the interruption of the American national anthem by The Miz during a live event.
