Batista is welcomed to the ring. Batista says since the day he left, he was begged to return to the WWE. Batista says he returns and is booed; the six-time World Champion and winner of the 2014 Royal Rumble and Wrestlemania headliner. Batista says they all cheer for people like Daniel Bryan. Batista says that is a personal slap in the face, which leads to a highlight from Raw. Batista openly insulted Stephanie McMahon, as she slapped him in the face. This led to Batista spearing Orton, and parading with the WWE World Heavyweight Championship. Batista says it’s funny, but Orton and Triple H won’t be laughing. Batista says he will walk out of Wrestlemania the WWE World Heavyweight Champion, saying he can beat anyone in it. Batista makes a digression, saying Stephanie probably hits harder than any of the competitors in the match. Triple H interrupts.
Hunter says he wants to leave his wife out of this, but Batista says she is the reason for everything – him being the COO or in a suit – and says he wouldn’t have anything that he has without marrying the boss’s daughter. Triple H says this is the Reality Era now, saying people don’t need to worry about how he got into power, but the fact that he does have it. Hunter wants to know why he is making it personal. Batista says he is doing the opposite, claiming he was openly insulted by Hunter. Batista says he hasn’t lost by the hands of Triple H, so wonders why he inserted himself into his main event. Triple H says that was a while ago, after he turned him into the hunger Animal; but his belly got full. Triple H says he got tired and quit, leaving for Hollywood. Triple H says he decided to come back, but has yet to see The Animal return. Hunter says he showed everyone that he can still go, but wonders when Batista will do the same. Triple H says he is willing to help Batista hone his skills and find that Animal one more time. Hunter makes a match for Batista against Sheamus.
