WWE's The Animal Batista Is Coming To Wizard World Philly - #MMBComic

Taming wild animals is best left to trained professionals. Taming “The Animal” is another matter entirely.
If Batista always appeared in control of his meteoric rise through the ranks of WWE, that’s because you’re not counting his tempestuous formative years. That what would ultimately bring the six-foot-six, 290-pound brute to the top was his ability to avoid the perils and violence all around him in his troubled youth.

WWE's Deal With Ion TV & Dropping Pay-Per-View Mention
















As noted, WWE Main Event on Ion is no more as the contract expired and the show will be airing exclusively on the WWE Network now.

- WWE is dropping the term "pay-per-view." From now on, the monthly Sunday shows are being called "special events."
