Injured Batista To Defend World Title Next Week On SmackDown!

Ryan Clark


Following the airing of WWE Friday Night SmackDown last night, a video promo was added on WWE.com announcing that Batista would defend the World Heavyweight Championship against Eddie Guerrero and Randy Orton in a Triple Threat Match next week on SmackDown.

Given the news that came out of the SmackDown tapings this past week with Batista suffering a muscle tear to his latissimus dorsi (a muscle on the upper back that connects under each arm), it appears WWE might be going with a title change with either Guerrero or Orton since Batista’s injury will likely keep him out of action for up to three months or so.

This match will be taped tomorrow night for SmackDown in Minneapolis, MN. RAW will also be taped tomorrow night as well. So, for those wanting to know the outcome earlier, we will have a report from the show late tomorrow night.
