Match times are not exact.
Big Dave Batista kicks off this week's show. He noted that ever since the day that he left WWE, the fans begged him to come back to the company. And now, he is back and they boo him while supporting someone like Daniel Bryan. He considers that a slap in the face, and says that whether you boo or cheer him, he will win the title at WrestleMania. He also added that Stephanie hits harder than any of his potential opponents.
Triple H then came out and told Batista to leave his wife out of this. Batista asked him why, especially since she was the reason that Triple H was the COO, and now wearing a suit for a living. Triple H brought up that this was the reality era, and that it only matters that he has power, not how he got it. Hunter asked why Batista was trying so hard to make this all personal, and Batista said that it was Triple H that made this personal by living off of past glory. Batista then reminded him in all of that past glory is the fact that he defeated Hunter every time they wrestled. Triple H accused Batista of being soft since his return and was wondering where the real animal was. Triple H then offered to help Batista find that animal, when he faced someone that reminds him of the hungry Batista, Sheamus.
