Monday’s episode of Raw in Atlanta ended with a huge angle involving the return of Dave Batista during Ric Flair’s birthday celebration.

In the final segment of the show, Triple H and Stephanie McMahon brought out Shawn Michaels, Ricky Steamboat, Kurt Angle, and Sting before introducing Flair. After his music played and he did not appear, they cut to the back and Batista entered Flair’s locker room, dragging him out before looking into the camera and asking Hunter if he had his attention now.

The show concluded with Triple H running to the back, checking on Flair and calling for a doctor as Flair was laid out on the floor.

This would appear to confirm the long-discussed singles match between Batista and Triple H is on for WrestleMania in April.

For years, Batista has spoken about wanting to have one more match with Triple H following their 2005 program that elevated Batista into a top position. The buildup to their main event at WrestleMania 21 in 2005 was one of the most effective in the promotion’s history.
