Plus, Dave Batista will be in action tonight, making his RAW debut! - RAW Preview

What the hell? Why does he suddenly have a first name? That's like introducing Steve Kane. Or Bob Rock. Or George Undertaker. You spend one month build this guy up (and pretend that he didn't make is debut months ago) and now this. Argh. I got some hair left that I have to go rip out.

possible mess up?



Mattitude(ma't-e-toodeh'): Mattitude, is something that can not be taught or learned. Mattitude is something that burns within. In the ring, Mattitude is the intangible, the x-factor, that gives Matt Hardy Ver.1 an advantage over everyone else.

I really don't understand this WWE trend of plainly-named wrestlers. Batista sounded unique and a bit intimidating by itself, but when you put DAVE in front of it, he sounds like a human resources director.
Whatever happened to the good ol' days when a guy could be called, simply, The Undertaker or Raven or The Ultimate Warrior or Haku....etc. Nowadays, all the new guys are coming in with normal names like John Cena, Randy Orton, Brock Lesnar, and now...the incomparable, the horrible, the bloodthirsty monster:

DAVE Batista.

Pleh.

I know..it's just stupid..and yet agian if this isn't a mess up I'll take a flight to WWE HQ,slap around HHH with a sledge hammer,and blame him

But seriously,yes,Batista is simply an awesome and unique name...Dave Batista is the guy I live next to(not really but merely an example)

I actually prefer the whole name sounding more real thing. I wouldn't mind if they generally just called him Batista, but the whole one name character thing just seems kinda played out. Even Edge, we all know he has a real name which has been acknowledged before on tv. Unless you really have a character demanding of just one name (Kane, UT, Raven), otherwise give the guy a real name, real motivation, and real desires, instead of some sort of supernatural crap.

The WWE needs more gimmicked out names... the most entertaining wrestlers (The Rock, The Hurricane, etc) all don't go by an actual name. \
And yeah, I am sure it is HHH's fault somehow...

Doesn't really strike fear when you read you're fighting Dave, huh?

Reminds me of my old high school, the Sackville High KINGFISHERS. Not really that scary.

"The most entertaining wrestlers" is a pretty subjective designation. To me, the most entertaining wrestlers are Chris Benoit, Kurt Angle, Chris Jericho, Rob Van Dam, Shawn Michaels, etc. While all of these may not be their real names, they are at least normal names that don't start with "The."

Still and all, I like gimmicky names. It's just more fun when done right (Mankind always sounded cooler than Mick Foley to me).

"The Three Minute Warning" is the new tag name for Rosie & Jamal?

How about just "3 Minutes"?

One of the best ways to have a unique name that is real is by giving a tag, such as "Stone Cold" Steve Austin.

Where is "Red Hot" Randy Orton?

It really depends on the name: Kurt Angle sounds good, and the coincidence of "angle" as a wrestling term is great. Brock Lesner is unusual enough that it sounds intimidating; if they had just called him Lesner it light have sounded off somehow. But Dave? Dave is the guy at the sports bar who tries to drink you under the table and ends up asleep under it after too many (read: 3) screwdrivers.

I was hoping his name would end up actually being... Deacon.

I mean it kind of goofy (being his old title and all) but the name Deacon Batista just oozes battitude.

I'm really hoping that was merely a WWE.com messup, because "Batista" in itself is a pretty awesome name. I hated it when they debuted him as Batista because I wanted him to go under Leviathan, but it has since grown on me.

I suppose we'll find out in a few hours...

If they have to give hima first name, couldn't it have been something cool like Jorge? Say it with me, like you could say it in a Spanish accent;

JORGE BATISTA!!!!!

    What the hell? Why does he suddenly have a first name? That's like introducing Steve Kane. Or Bob Rock. Or George Undertaker.


I'm sorry, but I cracked up when I read this. George Undertaker....BWA HA HA HA. We do already have a Sara Undertaker, so why the hell not.

I cracked up for Bob Rock - that's Metallica's producer, for those who don't know. I can just imagine - "Fuel" suddenly comes through the speakers during George Undertaker's 20-minute promo:

JR - "Wait a minute...that's...MAH GAWWD...that's BOB ROCK'S MUSIC! WHAT'S HE DOIN' HERE?!?!"

And out walks an aging recording guru...accompanied by Hetfield.

Actually, I'm pretty sure that Sara's last name is Taker. (Wasn't it Heyman that kept referring to her as that?) So that would make Taker's name Under Taker. (Yeah, yeah, yeah, Sarah keeps calling him Mark, so maybe he goes by his middle name and he's Mark Under Taker).

Anyway, back on topic, I don't mind "Dave Bautista". It's a little more realistic than believing that his name is just "Bautista". I'd have preferred a bit stronger first name though...

Of course, in a world where men walk around for hours at a time in their underwear and women settle their differences by tearing eachother's clothes off, adding the "realism" of a first name seems kind of counterproductive, doesn't it?

Well...At least not productive...

Dave Batista is kinda like Bill Goldberg. Goldberg sounded cool but Bill and Dave just aren't intimidating names.
