New Customs: Hayabusa and Batista June 21, 2008Posted by skribbel24 in Customs.
Always a popular choice, Hayabusa is once again back on eBay, in his traditional red colors. Don’t let this one get away.
Smackdown’s Animal is next, the half-Filipino WWE superstar Batista! He comes in custom attire bearing the colors of the flag, and a full size Philippine flag. A tribute, in his words, to “the first Filipino World heavyweight champion” and a celebration of the country’s independence this month. Batista was also on hand at the 1st Filipino Visionary Awards this year.
Batista’s return to the Philippines in 2006 made the front page of WWE.com:
Here is Batista talking about how proud he is to be Filipino, showing off his Philippine flag tattoo, and lots more, in a TV interview. (You may want to fast-forward to about 0:50 to hear Batista talk, as the introduction of the segment is spoken in Filipino.)
