Sort of how Vader was after Luke beat him down in Jedi.
This did pretty much happen though, when Batman was hammering away on him shouting "WherezDATRIGGARRR?".
That's why I was satisfied with where it ended. Bane's two-part demise served to finish off his arc with Batman and then worked as a good way to put some punctuation on Batman/Catwoman's storyline and offer Selina redemption without softening her up too much.
It was perfect.
