I think they were trying to make him exactly like Aquaman sadly. I am glad it was cut. The Duel between Gallia and Grievous should have been longer and one of the other planets needed to be cut. I would have loved if there was a duel between Plo and Grievous in the deleted scenes. They kinda overdid the hat fetish with Bane in the aired version as it is. There is no need to see how kinky Bane could get about a hat.
