6 foot 5
World Tag Team Champion; 2005 Royal Rumble winner
When Triple H and
Ric Flair went looking for a
muscular enforcer for Evolution, they didnít have to look far. They
chose the massive Batista, a fierce-looking gladiator whose muscles look
as though they were chiseled from granite.
Batista has made great strides and shows
tremendous promise for future domination. A relative newcomer who was
trained by the legendary Wild Samoan and former World Tag Team Champion,
Afa, Batista has quickly established himself as a title contender.
Originally an enforcer for D-Von Dudley, this
massive man plays second fiddle to no one. He has scored victories over Kane, and left
Chris Benoit unconscious in the ring.
Having learned from the best, Ric Flair and
Triple H, he now displays the smarts to go along with his overwhelming power.
Batista won his first championship when he teamed with Flair to defeat
the Dudleys ó the most decorated tag champs of all time ó for the
World Tag Team Championship at Armageddon
2003. As one of the most
promising Superstars on Raw, and one of the most impressive physical
specimens in the sportís history, Batista
Photos clearly has the potential to
dominate like few before him.
