Talk about perfect timing. Earlier this week on Raw (Mar. 11), Batista cut a promo about HHH giving him what he wants. That led to an agreement for a match between the two at Wrestlemania 35.
Fast forward to Friday (Mar. 15). An entertainment bombshell dropped that Disney rehired James Gunn to continue with the Guardians of the Galaxy film series. Gunn had been fired over old tweet jokes made in poor taste. Batista stuck by Gunn’s side, even going so far as to consider not returning in the role of Drax for the next GotG movie without Gunn.
Combine those two moments together and we have internet magic. Memes were created far and wide.
My Twitter search skills are still a work in progress, but here are the best ones I’ve found so far. We’ll start with the simple yet effective technique of putting Mickey Mouse’s head on HHH’s body.
Enjoy a better version with angry Mickey and, “Hooked on a Feeling,” by Blue Swede.
Here’s a nice compilation of what Batista wants with an edit switcheroo of HHH.

My favorite is the mashup of Batista and HHH with the Spice Girls’ song, “Wannabe.” I want to see Batista zig-a-zig-ah. Or maybe not, since I’m not quite sure what zig-a-zig-ah refers to. At least we get to see Drax do the ah part. It must have been those sensitive nipples.
I’m sure GotG fans celebrated from the rooftops with the same vim and vigor as Xavier Woods singing Batista’s theme song, “I Walk Alone,” by Saliva. I’ve watched it about ten times and it is still not old. Yeaaaaahhhhh!!!

We’ll finish with a clip of Batista popping and locking. Boom, chh, boom, boom.
Which is your favorite Batista meme that you have come across about Disney rehiring Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn? How did you feel about the news?
