Batista came to the ring. He ha some fun with the crowd referencing some of their chants towards him. He said he wasn’t here to promote anything, he wasn’t paid to be here, he wanted to come and see what NXT was all about and thanked everyone for their support. He said he didn’t have much else today but was interrupted by Bo Dallas. Bo got into it with the fans and Batista said he knows where Bo is coming from wen it comes to dealing with the fans. He and Batista talked and Bo went for a handshake. Batista shook his and but held in and hit Bo with a Spinebuster. Police came out and escorted Bo from the building since Bo is still banned from Full Sail. Batista went around ringside high fiving fans and was seen autographing and taking pictures with all kinds of fans that swarmed him around ringside. I didn’t see one fan go without an autograph or photo that wanted one.
The next taping at Full Sail will be on July 17th, 2014. No major WWE Superstar was announced for the show.
