Welcome to Friday night Smackdown and I hope you all are having a good day. We got some wrestling to get to. Batista comes out to open SmackDown and gets booed heavily. He says that he loves this business and he loves the WWE. He also says that he came back because he wanted to, not to be liked and please the fans. He came back to be WWE champion and they (fans) do not have to support him, but respect him. He says he will destroy anyone that is in front of him and that he is better than Hulk Hogan or The Rock. He wants to know what happened to the attitude. He makes fun of the fans because they chant for 155 pound guys over him. He says that everything about him screams WWE world heavyweight champion. He says that they need to get out of their fanasty world and he will destroy every single one of their heroes all the way to WrestleMania, but out comes Dolph Ziggler to a huge pop. Ziggler challenges Batista to a match tonight. Batista laughs at him and accepts the challenge. Out of nowhere Ziggler dropkicks Batista right after he issues the challenge and we go to break.
