Steamboat Update, New SmackDown Diva, Batista’s Training & More

– Jim Ross wrote the following update regarding Ricky Steamboat on his Twitter page: “Steamboat out of ICU & should be released from Tampa hospital in a few days. Should be good 2 go in a month.”

– Tuesday’s episode of WWE NXT on SyFy scored an 0.83 cable rating with 1,128,000 viewers.

– A video package will air on tonight’s Friday Night SmackDown that introduces a new WWE Diva to the main roster. It’s speculated that the new Diva is WWE developmental talent AJ Lee. Lee was on the road with WWE a few weeks back.

– Batista is currently training with Cesar Gracie’s team out in California to determine if he wants to further a career in MMA. People at the training facility really liked Batista and feel that if he dedicates himself, he might do well because of his strength and athleticism.

    Ha, such naive kids, why don’t you look up the Batista Crump Workout video on YouTube, that’s some athleticism and training.

  • He got a BACYCLE

    Hr you are a moron, when you grow up why don’t u puff puff and stfu…

  • Truthiness

    Since when did Batista have athleticism? He is one of the stiffest looking wrestlers I’ve ever seen. That entire quote is crap.

    I’ve never ordered a UFC PPV but if Batista ever faces Brock Lesner, I will pay whatever it costs to see Batista get hit with cold, ego-shattering reality in the form of a humiliting, decisive beatdown.

  • mannul

    i didn’t see any video package on smackdown for her,just for that guy alberto del rio….who isn’t going to last it seeems like.

    Perfect camp for Batista. The same camp responsible for the melee on national television. I cannot wait for all the drug tests he is going to fail because of the Diaz brothers saying “puff, puff, pass!”
