It’s official: Triple H will face Batista in a NO HOLDS BARRED match at WrestleMania 35. The match was made during a heated confrontation last night on RAW, complete with fourth-wall breaking and another Batista Fashion Statement.
Batista has previously said in interviews that he wanted his last match to be against Triple H so it looks like he’s getting his wish. The No Holds Barred stip will keep things hopefully interesting but I swear if this goes 30 minutes I’m going to cry.

This year’s Extreme Rules features a potential for the biggest RUSEV DAY of all as Rusev challenges AJ Styles for the WWE Championship. Also on the show Seth Rollins tries to regain his Intercontinental Championship by taking on Dolph Ziggler in a 30 Minute Iron Man Match, Braun Strowman faces Kevin Owens in a Cage Match, and Team Hell No reunites to challenge The Bludgeon Brothers for the SMACKDOWN Tag Team Championship. All that plus a whole lot more, because this show is probably going 4 hours.
