According to a backstage producer, Batista had a “good weekend” this weekend at house shows. This producer also believed that Batista needed time to adjust to the lack of interest in his return. He also reports now that Batista is a heel, they can play into the “Boo-Tista” chants and that originally, no one wanted to disagree with HHH about Batista, who pushed hard for his return, because going against HHH is “bad for job security.”
