• Big Match Reportedly Still On For WrestleMania 35
As seen at SmackDown 1000, former WWE Champion Batista made his return to WWE programming after over 4 years and planted seeds for a match with Triple H.
WWE officials had planned Batista vs. Triple H for WrestleMania 35, which would possibly be Batista’s retirement match (as that’s the retirement match he has wanted for many years).
However, during his tag team match at WWE Crown Jewel, Triple H suffered a torn pec. This began speculation that “The Game” is going to miss his first WrestleMania since WrestleMania 23 in 2007.
But now, it looks like that’s not going to be the case.
According to the No Holds Barred podcast, WWE officials expect Triple H to recover in-time for WrestleMania 35 and HHH vs. Batista is still the plan for next year’s WrestleMania 35 PPV.
