Welcome to Crossbody of Work, a show where we break down a wrestler’s career through five of their biggest matches.

On what was supposed to be the day of his WWE Hall of Fame induction, we’re taking a look at Dave Batista. We follow him from his debut on SmackDown as Deacon Batista through his Evolution run and his confirmation as a main event player. Batista has had a heck of a career as a multiple time WWE Champion, and now has a blooming second career in Hollywood. On top of his excellent matches, Javier & Evan also talk about:

  • Batista’s run in OVW as Leviathan
  • The 2005 Royal Rumble
  • Goatee trimming
  • Favorite Hell in a Cell matches

And a lot more.
