“The Animal” Dave Bautista showed up to Ric Flair’s birthday celebration during Raw … but he wasn’t there to wish his old buddy well.
The celebration began with members of the roster gathered onstage as Triple H and Stephanie McMahon introduced guests Shawn Michaels, Ricky Steamboat, Kurt Angle and Sting. Flair was introduced next, but he was nowhere to be found.
Instead … Batista was shown angrily storming into Ric’s dressing room. Then he was seen dragging Flair out. “Hey hunter, do I have your attention now,” Dave said over an unconscious Flair.
Triple H then rushed to the backstage area to make the save, but Batista was gone.
As we previously reported, Bautista has recently been in talks with WWE about wrestling a match at WrestleMania 35. Looks like things have now been solidified.
