Famous for
He began his WWE career on the May 9, 2002 episode of SmackDown! as Deacon Batista [2], a heel enforcer for Reverend D-Von on the SmackDown! franchise. Batista made his WWE match debut in a tag match teaming with D-Von against Randy Orton and Faarooq with Batista pinning Orton after using his spinebuster. Over a sequence of weeks, Orton tried to beat D-Von and Batista with different partners, but ultimately lost each time to Batista's spinebuster. Batista suffered his first loss in a match against Rikishi after D-Von accidentally struck him with a punch, allowing Rikishi to take advantage and pin Batista for the win. After this both partners started to argue over the weeks. Batista eventually turned on D-Von. After splitting with D-Von (and defeating D-Von after a Demon Bomb), he was traded to RAW and was re-branded as Dave Batista (or simply Batista). He aligned himself with Ric Flair and feuded with Kane, whom he defeated in his pay-per-view debut at Armageddon 2002 in Sunrise, Florida, after heavy interference from Flair.
