Batista has worked hard to establish himself as one of the greatest Superstars in WWE’s history, but his time in WWE was not always a bed of roses. The Animal certainly saw great success during his time in the company, as he went on to become a multi-time World Champion and a bona fide future WWE Hall of Famer. He tends to watch the current WWE product whenever possible and it seems he was amazed by a Zelina Vega spot.
Bautista had his attention captured by a particular sequence that transpired during a match on the March 17 episode of SmackDown. The contest featured Rhea Ripley and Dominik Mysterio teaming up to take on Zelina Vega and Santos Escobar.
As the match progressed, Vega executed a stunning Satellite DDT on Ripley, leaving the audience in awe and prompting WWE to share a clip of the maneuver on Instagram.
Upon seeing the clip, Bautista was quick to express his admiration for the move, further cementing its significance in the minds of wrestling enthusiasts worldwide. The fact that such a seasoned and accomplished wrestler as Bautista was impressed by Vega’s display of skill is a testament to her own abilities and a testament to the level of competition in the wrestling world today.
This is hypnotic😵💫.. and the bump! Cmon! 💰🙌🏽💰
Batista’s final match was against Triple H at WrestleMania 35, where he would lose to The Game. The Animal was supposed to receive a WWE Hall of Fame induction back in 2021, but he pulled out of the ceremony thanks to pandemic issues. We’ll have to see when he will get his own induction.
What’s your take on the insane spot? Did you find it hypnotic? Sound off in the comments!
