First Segment: Batista comes out and says he left and they begged him to come back, and they booed him when he finally did return. He says he takes issue with them cheering someone like Daniel Bryan, then he says no one will be having fun at Wrestlemania because he is walking out as the champion. Triple H comes out and says they should leave things be, but Batista brings up Stephanie slapping him and says she’s the reason for all of it. Batista says HHH wouldn’t have anything if he didn’t marry Stephanie, but HHH asks why he’s concerned with any of it. Batista talks about how HHH has never beaten him, and he says he only came back to win the title, but everyone wants to get in his way. HHH says Batista got spoiled and success went to his head, so he quit and tried to act, but he just went soft and he’s not The Animal anymore. HHH says everyone knows what he can do, but Batista needs to show what he’s made of, so he can face Sheamus tonight.
