batista rules!

I’m so happy Batista whupped Triple H’s ass in WrestleMania 21 to become the new world heavyweight champion of World Wrestling Entertainment.

I’ve never liked Hunter, a.k.a. The Game, a.k.a. The Cerebral Assassin, a.k.a. Mr. Stephanie McMahon. Not when he was still the genteel Hunter Hearst Helmsley, not when he was the sidekick of Shawn Michaels in DeGeneration X, and certainly not today when he’s a 10-time wrestling champion. OK, Triple H is a phenomenal athlete and he’s the villain you love to hate, but please, Hunter, stop pushing wrestling storylines where you keep regaining the championship. What, do you want to beat Nature Boy Ric Flair’s record? Wooo!

Anyway, Batista has become a fan favorite in the months leading to WrestleMania. He’s always been impressive and he’s one of the wrestlers I root for apart from Chris Benoit, Eddie Guerrero, Randy Orton, Shelton Benjamin and Victoria, though my sentimental favorite is still Stone Cold Steve Austin.

What some might not realize however is that Batista is Fil-Greek, which means he’s the first pro wrestler of Filipino ethnicity to win the world heavyweight championship. I haven’t had the chance to interview Batista (whose real name is Dave Bautista) yet, but you can read this Global Nation feature.

  1. Ouch. That was spoilerific. I was hoping to avoid reading up on Wrestlemania 21 results until I get to watch it on Solar in a few weeks. šŸ˜¦

    It’s cool though, I guess it’s too hard to avoid spoilers when you read a lot of blogs. Oops, sorry, you probably don’t know me, been reading your blog for a while. =p

    Still, Batista as World Champion…awesome. And he actually has Pinoy blood? Whudda thought…?

  2. woops, sorry roy hehe šŸ™‚ but yup, it is awesome to have a fil-greek wwe world heavyweight champion.

    wouldn’t it be great if batista and some of the wwe superstars would have some matches here in manila? just like in the old days of the wwf back in the 80s

  3. Wow, Joey, I never figured you for a wrestling fan. Then again, I am, too.

    Just finished “Foley is Good” on the plane today. Snagged it at National Cubao.

  4. hi dominique! hehe, yup, i’ve been a fan since the 80s šŸ™‚ i still find it weird to say wwe instead of wwf haha

    cheers!
