They aired a video feature on Batista vs. Rey Mysterio. We'll have to see how they play Mysterio's knee injury into the bout. DC is Batista's hometown, so I'm curious to see how they react to the heel turn as well.
Rey Mysterio vs. Batista
Lots of cheers for Batista.
Batista went to grab Rey but Mysterio ducked and nailed several kicks. Mysterio maneuvered him into the 619 position but Batista left the ring. He pulled Rey to the outside and slammed him back-first into the apron. Mysterio came back with a shoulderblock into the gut. He springboarded off the ropes but Batista ducked and nailed a running clothesline.
Rey came back and attempted the 619 but Batista caught him. Batista went for the powerbomb, but Rey escaped and nailed a rana, sending Batista to the floor. Rey nailed a baseball sliding kick to the the outside. Mysterio dove off the apron and crashed into Batista. Batista recovered and grabbed Rey by the face, then threw him back into the ring.
Rey caught Batista with a 619 into the kidneys, then onto into Batista's back. He finally hit the move into the face. He hit the West Coast Pop, then went to the top rope. Mysterio acknowledged the late Eddie Guerrero and came off with a frog splash but Batista got his knees up.
Batista speared Mysterio. He came up holding his ribs to sell the 619. Batista drilled Rey with a spinebuster. He nailed Rey with the Batista Bomb. He nailed Rey with a second one. Rey is out. Mysterio picked him up and powerbombed him again.
The referee called for the bell. They announced that the referee determined Mysterio can no longer continue.
Your winner, Batista!
After the bout, WWE officials were looking over Rey. Batista brought a chair into the ring and sat down looking at Rey. The fans chanted Batista's name. Batista teased using the chair, then threw it down. He picked up a limp Rey. Rey was begging off, but Batista nailed a spinebuster onto the chair. He walked out.
Mysterio was stretchered out.
