UPDATED: Batista has undergone surgery for injuries sustained during The Legacy's attack on Raw. The Animal's torn left biceps has been successfully reattached and he is expected to return to active competition in four months.
ORIGINAL STORY: Less than 48 hours after capturing the WWE Championship for the first time in his career, Batista has suffered a completely torn left biceps requiring surgery that will keep him out of action for at least four months.
The day after he defeated Randy Orton at Extreme Rules, Batista was looking forward to beginning his first-ever WWE Championship reign. However, when he appeared on Raw he was in for an unpleasant surprise as he was viciously attacked by The Legacy. The assault left The Animal with a torn biceps, for which he will be undergoing surgery today. Unfortunately, even with the prompt medical treatment, this injury is expected to render Batista unable to compete for several months.
Though Batista struggled mightily against his foes, the superior numbers of The Legacy were ultimately too much, as the group of multi-generational Superstars overcame the WWE Champion. The three devious ring warriors focused their attacks on Batista's left arm, using every underhanded method available to them, applying pressure using the ring ropes, the group's trademark stomps, and even bringing a steel chair into the mix. Following the craven attack, Orton retrieved the WWE Title from his fallen nemesis, a symbolic act, but one that raises an important question: With Batista injured, what does the future hold for the coveted WWE title?
