* When he [[HeelFaceTurn turned against]] Wrestling/TripleH during his contract signing for ''Wrestling/WrestleMania 21''.
* Giving Wrestling/AlbertoDelRio a Batista Bomb after weeks of trash talk, the first since his return to the company.
* His 2014 return to in ring action, specifically the Royal Rumble match....and WINNING the match.
** And instead of forcing the proverbial square peg of his Face role into the circular hole that was the disapproving WWE Universe, Batista pretty much [[FaceHeelTurn rounded on them]] and told them that they can cheer or boo him all they want, bottom line is, he's there to win championships, not popularity contests, DEAL WITH IT.
