Batista injured
January 9, 2006

Sunday night at a SmackDown live event, World Heavyweight Champion Batista injured his triceps in a match against Mark Henry.

The extent of the injury is undetermined at this point. WWE.com will have more information on Batista's injury later today.

======================================
Needless to say...this is not a good thing.

Looks like now that he just might have to go and have the surgery after all.

If so, JBL gets the belt again ?

I wonder if this injury was legit, or if it's a case of Batista being told that rehabbing the torn lat isn't working and that has to have surgical work done on it after all.

If this isn't a work, then Smackdown is really hurting right now. Who do you put the title on now? Benoit? JBL? Orton? The Boogeyman? (just kidding on the last one).

My opinion ... it's now time to take on the experiment of can Rey Mysterio be considered Heavyweight Championship material. What does Smackdown really have to lose these days?

Well, if they are currently feuding Batista with Mark Henry, Vince could have the warped reasoning to get a dividend on his decade long investment and make Mark Henry Your World Heavyweight Champion. Taking a quick glance at Revelations, I believe that would be the 7th Sign.



Any complaints about the preceding post can be directed at the time traveling aliens who edited it.

Why would this be a work? At all?

That doesn't seem like WWE's style. If that's what they were going for, they'd fabricate a story about Henry aggravating the existing lat injury, not creating a new one in the tricep.

Also, if they were making it up, they'd have attributed the injury to something that happened on TV, not at a house show.

Not necessarily. They used a house show in 1998 (I wanna say it was in San Jose) where Austin "showed" the aftereffects of getting hit with a shovel and the footage was helpfully shown on Raw the next night to set up the mirth that was the attempted embalment. I realize that's going back a ways, but it's a better example than the thing with Eddie's mother in 2004.

Most likely it is a legit injury, but it's not like there's no precedent in the other direction.

Unless Batista is going to be out of action during WM-time, I think they should keep the belt on him (and they probably will since they just had a title change on RAW). He's still a solid champion. Of course, if it saves us from Orton/Batista being the World Title match at WM22, I'm all for taking the belt off of Batista.

If it's absolutely necessary to take the belt off of Batista, JBL would be my pick. But, they'd probably go with UT.

If JBL gets the title, in this purely hypothetical situation, wouldn't that make him the first person to hold the World and WWE Titles in this post-split era?

Not sure how injured Edge is, but it's interesting that now we have two injured world champions on both shows.

This would not be the strangest thing they've ever done to try and get Mark Henry over.

Bring him out, bill him as the man that injured the champion, and then let him win for a couple weeks before Batista makes his 'return' and tears through him like a weed whacker running over a wedding cake.

But, no. We're just making stuff up because it's frustrating to accept at face value that Batista is injured again because Vince hasn't given up on Mark Henry.

Doesn't look like it's a work - from Meltzer's upddate today:

    Originally posted by Dave Meltzer
    An update on Batista is that the belief at this moment is still that he tore his triceps at yesterday's show in Verona, NY. He has been flown to Birmingham to meet with Dr. James Andrews today for a full evaluation. That means he is unlikely for tonight's house show in Elmira, at least as a participant. What decision will be made from here will depend on Andrews' evaluation. The company had made the call to go with Randy Orton as champion when Batista tore his lat several weeks back, but then when Batista said he would continue working a full schedule, the title change was rescinded.

Maybe they could set a special exemption where the title is vacated? Then the winner of this year's Royal Rumble becomes the new Smackdown champion?

Rough break for Batista, though.

Thats not a bad idea, actually. It means they can switch someone from Raw if they want-maybe send Cena back, for example, or Trips. There's a world o' possibilities. It also means they don't have to make a decision on the Mania ME so soon, which could be a good thing as they seem to have no fucking clue what they're doing in that department right now.

Sending someone from Raw would be a good idea, but I can't see it being Cena or Triple H. Triple H is not going to the "B-Show", and I can't imagine how much they would like "Cena's return to Smackdown" to be met with 75% of the audience booing. They've got to build him back up credibility-wise in the fan's eyes before they can do anything special with him. I don't mean build him up by winning matches (they've done enough of that), I mean giving him a character change so that the fans stop shitting over everything the poor guy does.

I don't think James Andrews will be checking out Batista.

    In other news, Jeff Bagwell's trip to Birmingham later this week may be postponed. Dr. James Andrews suffered a heart attack over the weekend, and while he is reportedly doing well, it's likely Andrews' appointments have been put on hold until further notice.

Wow. Who's the next top sports medicine guy after Andrews, anyway? Even in MLB, the NFL and the NBA, he's usually the first guy athletes will go to for treatment.

Dr. Frank Jobe? Didn't he develop the "Tommy John Surgery"?



Big Show: Why is he getting the Intercontinental Title shot and not me?
RVD: Ahhh...maybe 'cause you're a tool.
Big Show: Look. I am 7'2". I am 500 pounds. I'm a giant.
RVD: Oh ok. You're a giant tool.

Dr. Lewis Yocum is another guy whose name pops up a lot in these situations. Isn't there also a Dr. Youngblood that does this stuff?

I think Dr. Youngblood deals more with reconstructive surgery than sports-related injuries. (Sorry, couldn't think of a better way of wording that.) I know he's the guy who performed neck surgery on every WWE person who's required it, with the exception of Kurt Angle.

Wasn't Batista getting injuries like this when he first came in and was on the shelf for a while? He probably should've just taken some time off to properly rehab the first injury instead of working with one.

Injuries like this really sound like they are a result of steroid use.

Didn't the Megapowers start Exploding on SNME? The match with the Twin Towers were Liz was stretchered out? Or was that The Main Event? And I want to say the blowoff to Savage vs. Jake, culminating in Undertaker turning face, was on SNME.
