It was obvious to everyone after watching the segment involving The Evolution on Smackdown 1000 that Batista and Triple H would lock horns at WrestleMania with Batista returning to the WWE for one final full-time run.
Unfortunately Triple H suffered an injury during his match against The Brothers of Destruction at WWE Crown Jewel. Later updates have confirmed that ‘The Game’ will have to undergo a surgery since the injury was deemed serious. So this has ruled out the possibility of Batista facing Triple H in the mainevent of WrestleMania, but what does that mean for ‘The Animal’ heading towards WrestleMania?
Dave Meltzer from F4WOnline spoke about the situation: “So he’s probably having surgery. I think he went right to Birmingham so he’s probably having surgery. If it is a torn pec and he’s having surgery — he’s out of WrestleMania which means the Batista/ Triple H match which was the main event of that show — you gotta change your plans.”
However Meltzer also hinted that Batista could be facing another member of The Evolution if things remain the same, “If Batista wants to do it I guess Orton would be the guy and it would probably be a better match now. But it’s not as big of a match. But yeah, that would be the guy though.”
