Batista returns on WWE Raw, furthers angle with Triple H

Batista returned to Raw tonight, making sure he got Triple H’s attention by laying out Ric Flair.

The theme for tonight’s Raw centered around Flair’s 70th birthday celebration, with a number of stars sending him birthday wishes including Snoop Dogg and Stone Cold Steve Austin. Triple H and Stephanie McMahon came out in the final segment of the show and introduced Sting, Shawn Michaels, Kurt Angle and Ricky Steamboat as special guests.

Triple H then introduced Flair as his music played. However, after a few moments it became clear something was amiss as backstage Batista appeared, dragging a camera over to Ric Flair’s dressing room. He shut the door and attacked Flair, dragging him out of the room. He then asked Hutner if he had his attention.

Hunter left the ring and went backstage, but Batista was nowhere to be seen. He tended to Flair as the show closed.

It was reported earlier today by Dave Meltzer that Batista was backstage tonight at Raw and was being kept hidden. He last appeared on WWE television on the 1000th episode of SmackDown, reuniting with the rest of Evolution. He mentioned to Triple H during the segment that he had never beaten him, teasing a future match.
