Batista Engaged In Twitter Beef With Alberto Del Rio

Posted by Brad Davis January 10, 2014 15 Comments

Batista and Alberto Del Rio have been exchanging some tweets this week, with Batista warning Del Rio not to “turn a work into a shoot.”

During Monday’s Old School RAW, Alberto Del Rio defeated Sin Cara and cut a promo announcing himself as an entrant into the 2014 Royal Rumble. Baitsta then tweeted:

Del Rio responded:

Vince Lucero was the MMA fighter Batista defeated in his first and only professional MMA bout, back in October 2012. Del Rio continued:

Batista then tweeted:

“Seems 2 me that some C level stars in a B level star era have bought into their own hype. Don’t turn a work into a shoot. #realitycheck”

The tweet was later deleted. According to a source in WWE, Batista deleted tweet was a big topic of discussion among the wrestlers this week. With Batista expected to be featured in a main event program when he returns to WWE on the January 20th episode of RAW from Dayton, Ohio, the feeling is that his tweet about this being a “B level star era” is a sign that he’s bringing a big ego with him.

      Batista > Del Rio easily. Batista actually drew and is interesting to watch. Del Rio is sleep inducing.

      P.P. Johnny says Bautista & Del Rio are just discussing what type of beef they like. Bautista likes roast beef while Del Rio likes beef tacos.

      i agree with dave on him saying this is a b list era name 1 single break out star that broke out in the last 8 years (cena dont count bc he broke out in 2004 same with orton and lesnar broke out in 2002)

        CM Punk?

      • LeWWE

        Punk + Bryan and arguably edge who would have been a top star if he wasnt forced to retire.

      Del Rio is boring…

      • Save_Us.Y2K

        And Bautista is just chalk full of excitement. No one was glad to see his boring ass go and not hack it doing anything else to come back with his tail between his legs.

        • Dzon

          Batista is so much better than Del Rio!

          • random dude

            Better at what? Sure as hell not wrestling.

            • oscar

              haha (agreed)

    • Joseph Parks

      Batista needs to stop using roids

    • hmw

      batista is awesome. del rio is boring

    • Hector Naranjo

      Why does it matter what Batista said, wwe stars always belittle the other guys in promos, who doesn’t have an ego in anything involving competition, ppl nowadays, so easily offended.

    • Bulkster

      Sigh, yet another downside to bringing back part timers. Particularly ones like Batista. Attitudes like his are poison.

    • Jordi Noob

      i have to agree with Batista, WWE right now is just a b level.

      nothing wrong with voicing out opinions especially if it’s true though it sucks coz he has to restrain himself from doing that because he works with the company that has a B level star era.
      well, i can’t wait til Batista gets his hands on Alberto, to see if he’ll punch and kick him viciously just like what Brock Lesnar does on most of his promos.
