However, today WWE released the poster for Armageddon and it does feature a large photo of Batista screaming. In each of his eyes you can see a dust cloud of a bomb that has just gone off. In his mouth you see the information advertising Armageddon and then right below that you have the “WWE Armageddon” logos.
With this poster it does appear that WWE at least hopes Batista will be able to perform at the event. It should also be noted that this is the last WWE PPV for 2005 and will be a Smackdown! only PPV, but with the recent influx of cross promotional storylines it could be possible that WWE will try to include RAW Superstars on the event as well.
