Game off. Last month at SmackDown 1000, Evolution made their first appearance together in a good many years. The segment was mainly focused on Batista, who has become a star in Hollywood since his time in wrestling ended. During the reunion, Batista mentioned that Triple H had never beaten him. This seemed to be setting something up, but then things changed a bit in November.
According to Dave Meltzer on Wrestling Observer Radio, the proposed match between Batista and Triple H, which may have headlined WrestleMania 35, is now unlikely to take place due to Triple H’s torn pectoral muscle. WrestleMania 35 is just over five months away and it is unlikely that Triple H will be healthy by then. Prior to the injury, there were also rumors that the match wouldn’t be taking place until SmackDown Live moves to FOX on October 19, 2018.
These sound like wrestling words.
Opinion: I can’t say I’m surprised by any of this, but at the same time it’s not like the match has been officially announced or anything like that. You could have Triple H vs. Batista at Summerslam or the first SmackDown Live on FOX and it wouldn’t make much of a difference. It’s just an injury that got in the way and when Triple H is healthy again, everything can be fine.
