– WWE’s decision to relocate Batista, who recently returned, to the SmackDown roster is seen as interesting among industry types. While the idea of bolstering the thin SmackDown main-event roster makes sense, especially with Mysterio off the road until next month and Undertaker not working an active house show schedule, Batista is not the most logical candidate for the role.
The Wrestling Observer Observer notes that because Batista returned early from injury, he will presently be working a limited schedule (primarily television and pay-per-view). So, if WWE were looking for someone to beef up the touring card, Batista is not the guy, and many are thus perplexed that WWE would so hastily blow off his feud with Randy Orton.
