Batista is Back on Top as the World Champion September 18, 2007Posted by skribbel24 in WWE.
The WWE managed to pull off one big surprise last night at the Unforgiven pay per view as Batista walked away with the World Heavyweight Championship.
The majority of people were expecting the Great Khali to walk away from Sunday night’s Unforgiven pay per view with the World Heavyweight Championship after his match against Rey Mysterio and Batista.
Many had expected to see the Great Khali dropping the belt to the Undertaker down the line, but apparently that’s not going to happen.
Very few people expected the World Heavyweight Championship match at Unforgiven to be a classic by any means. With the Great Khali involved, people rarely expect even a good match.
When Batista was added to the match, it was believed that he was only added to help carry the workload with Rey Mysterio. Not too many thought he would be walking out of the ring with the World Heavyweight Championship.
While the match wasn’t nearly as good as the World Heavyweight Championship triple threat Wrestlemania match between Chris Benoit, Shawn Michaels, and Triple H, it was still a solid match.
Batista and Rey Mysterio did a good job of hitting their spots and selling moves. The Great Khali himself sold more in this match than in recent memory, even going as far as selling a spinebuster from Batista.
Unless Edge makes a surprising return earlier than expected, there isn’t a top level heel that should be challenging Batista for the title.
MVP has been doing well as of late, and he looks like a future main eventer, but not right now. There’s no need to rush his push since that might backfire. Plus, his feud with Matt Hardy needs to keep going for a few more months so that they can easily win every feud of the year award out there.
Mark Henry could be a decent opponent for Batista, but he just lost pretty convincingly to the Undertaker at Unforgiven.
That means the writers could possibly turn to one of the faces. There’s hints all over the WWE website (and after Unforgiven went off the air) that the Undertaker will be pursuing his World Heavyweight Championship again. After the match at Unforgiven, Batista and Rey Mysterio looks like a feud the fans would get behind.
A feud between Batista and the Undertaker might be a bit tricky to pull off. Fans already are getting tired of seeing Batista as a challenger for the title. He’s getting into Lex Luger territory here. Putting the belt on the Undertaker would make Batista a challenger. Plus, if he can never beat the Undertaker, then he’ll lose some credibility.
Surprises are always a good thing in pro wrestling. It’s an element that has become a bit rare now a days.
