Batista Returns WWE RAW 2014

We can now reveal some official details on WWE’s new Batista DVD!

As confirmed yesterday, the release date for this one is June 10th, 2014. The current working title for the set is “Batista – The Animal Unleashed“.

Below is the official synopsis for the new DVD and Blu-ray.

The Animal, Batista, was one of the most dominant Superstars of the 21st century, until his abrupt departure from WWE in 2010. Now, the former WWE and World Heavyweight Champion is back to reclaim his place at the top of the food chain. In this release, fans follow his path from the struggles that drove him away from WWE to his triumphant return in 2014.

Why did he leave? What conquests did he pursue while he was away? How did he train? And how does he plan to conquer WWE all over again?

    Batista was destined to fail the minute he hugged the authority. WWE can’t help themselves, they gotta put over the McMahons above all others. Look at how they brought in the nWo and Eric Bischoff. It kills the characters when they do this and leaves money on the table.

    If Batista had instead got in Triple H’s face and called him on how he’s treated Daniel Bryan, Batista would be over huge right now. Instead…

  2. Wonderllama says:

    Worst Wrestlemania main event ever: Batista vs. ANYBODY.

  4. AD Degreez says:

    Not sure yet wait till listing till I comment but would love for an rvd blu ray. Ecw stuff would be cool to be in there but even just his best wwe would be a great set!

  5. Mason says:

    Is the Batista dvd a doc or match comp

  6. Spritz1999 says:

    Batista’s return hasn’t been good at all… considering the fact all he did was diss WWE while he was away, I have to agree with the fans…

  7. Me says:

    Just a heads up, you can get Royal Rumble 2014 at DeepDiscountDVD for $12.47. That’s the lowest I’ve found it. Their shipping is cheap too. Just $2 (or free shipping for a $25+ order).

  8. Brad Attitude says:

    The Animal Unleashed something alright and it hasn’t been a pretty one!

  9. Anonymous says:

    It’s probably for the best it doesn’t mention Benoit by name. That way, god forbid, if they need to use it for someone else, they could.

  10. Vincenzzzzzo says:

    Ha, the Blue Meanie talking about Most Crappy Gimmicks. Right.

  11. His return so far has been a bit of a disaster, I really don’t get the point in this set.

    • Vintage Simon says:

      I don’t really got the point in Batista full-stop.

      • David says:

        I liked Batista’s heel run in late-2009 to early-2010. Hopefully they let him go back to that. I can see him win the title at WM, turn heel in the process, join Authority as the “face of WWE” and have a program with Daniel Bryan lasting couple months for the title.

        • LP1 says:

          He pretty much turned heel on Raw last night with that promo. All I know is if WWE sticks with Orton vs Batista as the Title match for Mania and don’t add Bryan to it somehow then the crowd will absolutely murder that match. It’ll be Goldberg vs Brock all over again except much worse.

  12. David says:

    Surprised the Royal Rumble Blu-ray is sold out. I don’t think i’ve seen the PPV Blu-rays sell out on Amazon.

  13. SRB says:

    I’m getting the impression Batista will get another documentary or something like it with the synopsis. They should make it a match compilation with new interviews throughout. When WWE doesn’t do a documentary, they seem to be following the interview to match format like on Bret’s latest set along with HBK and Warrior. This is still pretty effective. Sometimes I like this better as some documentaries can be boring.
