WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair has broken his silence on the storyline attack by former WWE World Heavyweight Champion Batista during Monday’s episode of RAW in Atlanta, GA at the State Farm Arena.
It was hyped to be a night where the company was celebrating his life and career but before he was able to walk out to the ring, Batista attacked him in his locker room and dragged out to the hallway.
Flair took to social media to thank everyone for throwing him a ‘wonderful birthday celebration.’ He also addressed Batista directly.
“I Want To Thank WWE For Throwing Such A Wonderful Birthday Celebration With Some Of My Closest Friends. As For Batista … Be Careful Whose Party You Crash, Big Man! #WOOOOO.”
This appears to be the start of the program between Batista and Triple H that will ultimately lead to a match at WrestleMania 35, which is the biggest event of the year for the WWE. This show goes down on Sunday, April 7, 2019 in East Rutherford, NJ at MetLife Stadium and airs on WWE’s streaming service, WWE Network.
Triple H’s reaction to this attack is expected to be aired on next week’s episode of Monday Night RAW.
