The Feb. 28, 2014 edition of WWE's Friday Night Smackdown opens with a tribute to Nelson Frazier Jr. aka Mabel, Viscera and Big Daddy V. The wrestler passed away last week.
Batista opens the show to a mixed reaction and says he loves this business and this company. He states that he did not come back to be liked and that fans do not have to support him, but they must deal with it. He says it's a fact that he can destroy anyone they put in front of him. Batista asks what happened to the WWE, the real men and the attitude. He says if the fans think their heroes are as good as him, then they must get out of their fantasy world and enter his real world because he would destroy each of their heroes on the way to becoming WWE World Heavyweight Champion at WrestleMania 30.
