Any body who still thinks Batista has a shot at winning the RR this Sunday is loopy.
I thought 'The Return of Batista' last nite was garbage.
First he comes out dressed like a fool.
OK. He got the big return pop when his music hit and he did the machine gun thing, but after that he really started to suck the life out of the crowd.
It took forever as he climbed up on all ring posts.
The he kissed the ring mat? Really?
Then he speaks, but the guy could never talk to begin with.
Later he comes back out and Batista Bombs Del Rio, and the crowd went mild. (At least he hit the power bomb without having to roll over on his back after he hit it like he usually does.)
Here's Batista's career in a nutshell...
They caught lightning in a bottle on The Road to WM21. They put him over at WM21 although Cena's 1st title victory should have been the focal point that nite.
Batista gets injured.
Batista has good chemistry with Undertaker and has a good feud with him
They have nothing to do with Batista at WM 24 so they give him a throw away match with Umaga.
Batista gets injured again.
Batista puts Cena over on his way out the door and it takes him forever to leave.
Then Batista comes back four years later, and looks like a bloated version of the Rock wearing a pair of jeans from high school and a track shirt that he borrowed from the Funkasaurus.
Give me a break.
He didn't even try to get his belly button tattoo removed in the past four years?
Are u serious?
Not only is Batista not going to win the Royal Rumble, but watch as this man will sink each and every week with a milder and milder crowd response.
Look for Batista to wrestle Shameus on the WMXXX pre-show in a match to determine who gets to spot HHH the next time he goes bench pressing.
(That's only if Batista doesn't get injured before then.)
