The WWE fans have reacted extremely negatively to Batista's return to the company, particularly since The Animal won the Royal Rumble match at the end of January. He has been booed mercilessly ever since to the point where the fans are cheering for opponents such as Alberto Del Rio just to express their displeasure with the fact that Batista will compete against Randy Orton for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship in the main event of WrestleMania 30.
The company has started to acknowledge the boos, most notably on the latest edition of Monday Night Raw, and Batista has now taken to his Twitter to address the situation in two messages. [WARNING: STRONG LANGUAGE FOLLOWS]
"Seems that people think I'm joking when I say I don't let the opinions of negative asshole[s] dictate my life," Batista wrote. "Think again...#onelife Peace!"
"By the way...I left because I had to not because I wanted to," he wrote in a second message in reference to his departure in 2010. "And I came back because I wanted to not because I had to. #dreamchaser"
He also retweeted some messages from fans, including Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant.
John Cena Injury Update
John Cena clutched his leg during the Wyatt Family's attack on him during Raw this week, and speculation began that the injury could have been legitimate. But PWInsider.com reports that the injury is simply part of the angle, and the stretcher on which Cena left the arena was part of the script. The stretcher was actually at the top of the entrance ramp before the attack even took place.
