Smackdown opened with Batista coming out for a promo saying that he came back because the fans kept asking him to return and then they booed him. He starts knocking Daniel Bryan, Randy Orton and HHH, then knocked Stephanie. HHH came out and told him to leave Stephanie out of this. Batista told him he wouldn’t have any power if he hadn’t married Stephanie. HHH asked why is it suddenly personal and Batista said he’s beaten HHH every time they’ve ever wrestled. HHH said that if you want to make it personal, he made Batista the “Animal” and Batista instead got soft and walked away. HHH said we haven’t seen the Animal return yet and everyone is waiting. He announces Sheamus vs. Batista for tonight.
