– As seen on Monday’s RAW, Batista “quit” after Triple H wouldn’t give him a one-on-one WWE World Heavyweight Title shot. We’ve noted that Batista was finishing up with WWE to begin promotional work for Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy. Batista is expected back in time for SummerSlam.

    So they pulled Big E from Ziggler, pushed him, put the IC title on him, and then promptly banned him to jobber island. WTF. Here’s hoping they bring in Flair for Ziggler and give him the push he as earned.
