Batista’s honeymoon with the fans ended yesterday as the Royal Rumble winner was showered with boos after they realized Daniel Bryan was not going to be in the Rumble match.
The former WWE and World Heavyweight champion however lost his cool and ended the night by flipping the bird to the fans in the Consol Energy Center, not something that a baby face usually does, unless your name is Stone Cold Steve Austin.
On the way to the back after his win and when cameras stopped rolling, Batista was welcomed with a middle finger by a fan while he was high-fiving fans by the security barricade. Eventually Batista returned the favor to draw even more boos from the already-pissed off crowd.
Batista’s gesture was caught on the big screen by WWE cameras which were still filming the post-show antics and you can see the photo snapped by a fan below.
