Ah yes, Batista, WWE’s homegrown Animal. Once a member of Evolution, and best friend of Rey Mysterio. Batista has had a very illustrious career, as he was named Wrestler Of The Year and Most Improved Wrestler Of the Year in 2005.
Batista has main evented Wrestlemania three times, once against Triple H for the World Heavyweight Championship at WrestleMania 21, once against The Undertaker for the World Heavyweight Championship at Wrestlemania XXIV and once against both, Randy Orton & Daniel Bryan for the WWE Championship at Wrestlemania XXX.
He has had many high profile feuds too with the likes of “The Heartbreak Kid” Shawn Michaels, John Cena, Triple H, Randy Orton, Daniel Bryan & The Shield.
He has been a multiple time champion in the WWE, winning the World Heavyweight Championship four times, winning the World Tag Team Championship, twice with Ric Flair and once with John Cena, the WWE Championship twice, and the WWE Tag Team Championship once with his best friend Rey Mysterio.
He hasn’t won a mid-card championship, but that list of accomplishments are better than some accomplishments that are held by members of the Hall Of Fame.
Batista’s accolades aren’t the greatest, but along the lines of a guy who rose through the WWE ranks, he’s one of the greats. Batista is a sure fire Hall of Fame inductee.
Could he possibly return in the future to finish off his career and win a mid-card title and even main event Wrestlemania once more? If or when he returns, some fans will for sure rejoice.
