WWE threw the first hint at a possible Triple H vs Batista match last night during the Smackdown 1000 episode.
Batista, making his first WWE appearance in a few years, accompanied his fellow Evolution members on the show and was full of praise for his partners. He told Ric Flair to keep his thing in his pants, said Randy Orton has more talent in his pinky finger than half the people who stepped foot in this ring, and said that Triple H has done everything in this business…except beat him!
The crowed popped huge for the reference and Triple H did not look particularly happy with the statement. Batista and Triple H then had a stare down before the Nature Boy stepped in and smoothed things over. The two eventually hugged but the tension remained nonetheless.
Batista made it clear several times that he wants another run in the company and a match with Triple H. So far, Batista has always come up victorious against the King of Kings and has beat him multiple times including at WrestleMania when he took the title away from him.
