WWE’s “The Animal” Batista is back. Back in WWE ring after almost 4 years of absence and he already made an impact by winning the 2014 Royal Rumble.
Batista’s win is not the only statement he made during the Rumble but also the sneakers he is wearing. Instead of normal wrestling boots, The Animal is rocking Air Jordan XX8 “Oak Hill”. This shoe was made specifically for Basketball but the sneaker scene is slowly penetrating even the professional wrestling world. John Cena and Kofi Kingston also rocks basketball sneakers or sneakers in general in a wrestling match.
Batista rocking Air Jordan XX8 “Oak Hill” is a no surprise as he is known be a sneakerhead. He recently tweeted a picture of his Nike Air Force 1 “Year of the Rabbit” in which he noted to be a holy grail for Air Force 1-heads out there because of its rarity. He also tweeted an image of Air Jordan Son of Mars and matching it with Air Jordan socks Green Glow colorway.
Dave Batista, a half Filipino, half Greek will be heading to the Wrestlemania XXX and will face the Wold Heavyweight Champion in the main event.
