Alberto Del Rio confronted Batista
And you thought Randy Orton wasn’t happy about Batista going to WrestleMania. The Viper’s frustration at facing his old running mate still doesn’t hold a candle to Alberto Del Rio’s after he failed to make good on his promise to humiliate The Animal two weeks ago in the Royal Rumble Match. The Essence of Excellence saved his harshest rhetoric for this face off, vowing to turn Batista – who insisted he had no problem with Del Rio – into a quivering mess before pouncing with a cheap shot to the Royal Rumble Match winner. The freshly-anointed Gracie Jiu-Jitsu purple belt didn’t have any problem throwing hands in response, though “Mexico’s Greatest Export” hit the road before The Animal could strike with the Batista Bomb.
