New backstage photos of Triple H & Batista just feel extra tense

Batista versus Triple H is happening, isn’t it?

In a new photo gallery from, fans go behind the scenes at SmackDown 1000. The gallery gives some insight into what went on during the historic show. It also provides another opportunity to read into the many facial expressions of Batista.
