Batista attacks Ric Flair on RAW

The closing segment of this week’s Monday Night RAW was the 70th birthday celebration for WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair. Every superstar had gathered to celebrate his birthday, from the likes of Shawn Michaels, Ricky Steamboat and even Sting.

Triple H and Stephanie McMahon hosted the segment. When it was time for Ric Flair to make his way down to the ring, he didn’t show up. Soon after, the camera cut to backstage where we saw Batista dragging a cameraman towards Ric Flair’s locker room.

Batista then dragged Ric Flair out of his room. Turning to the camera, he asked Triple H if he had his attention now. Triple H went running up the ramp and the show closed out with a swarm of WWE officials surrounding Ric Flair. However, Batista was nowhere to be seen.

So it seems that the planned Wrestlemania 35 match between Batista and Triple H, which was teased on Smackdown 1000 is going to happen after all. The match’s status was in doubt due to Triple H suffering a torn pectoral muscle, but it looks like he will be ready by Wrestlemania.

    I believe Batista is on a mission from Vince McMahon. I said this was going to be Vince McMahon last Wrestlemania and I believe I am right.

    Yeah we all thought something was going to happen but Batista attacking Ric Flair did not see that coming at all.

    To be honest when they initially announced this birthday celebration I thought it was just a way to further the Becky/Charlotte feud (did I blink and miss Charlotte last night as I do not even remember seeing her).
    As Becky came out earlier in the night, I started to wonder if something else was gonna happen, and as they started calling out the guests (why Kurt Angle? What connection does he have to Flair?), I knew he was not gonna come out and someone was gonna attack him backstage. Was a bit telegraphed. That said, I had not considered it would be Batista.

    All those segmented video’s from twitter.. serious overkill. Give your audience a single clip, damn.

    It’s no surprise to me, didn’t Dave Batista said that he wants to be heel? He is indeed the best heel

    Come on Bruce Prichard… you can do better than this. Even though this was one of the best RAW segments we’ve seen is a VERY LONG TIME.
