Just recently, a fan took to twitter to ask Batista if he watched WrestleMania 33. the Animal answered that he watched the match between Shane McMahon and AJ Styles and that he gave the SmackDown LIVE Commissioner a full critique of his performance. The reply from Shane ‘O Mac was astonishing.
As we could recall, the last run Batista had with the WWE was in 2014. The blue coloured gear that he wore during his last stint with the company was the subject of several memes; consequently, christening him, “Bluetista”. He left the company due to creative differences and was approached to appear at WrestleMania 32 but the offer was turned down by Batista.
However, The Animal has kept himself busy in Hollywood. After a breakthrough performance in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, Batista appeared in the 2015 James Bond film, Spectre. He also played the villain in the reboot of 1989 film Kickboxer, which also starred MMA legend Georges St. Pierre.
Stating on Twitter, Batista noted that he watched the WrestleMania 33 match that took place between Shane McMahon and AJ Styles. He apparently gave his opinion on the match to Shane as well. In response to the feedback that Batista sent, Shane simply replied with, “#Bluetista”.

This is a thinly veiled reference to Batista’s mediocre run with WWE in 2014.
Meanwhile, though this one-time tweet from the Animal, is something that is unlikely to have any immediate impact in the world of professional wrestling. However, while Shane McMahon will be busy performing on SmackDown, Batista will on the other hand be busy promoting and performing in his upcoming Hollywood projects.
