—Dave Bautista apparently doesn’t like the fact someone on the roster is getting a push. He did an interview with MMA Junkie where he said he doesn’t watch WWE much these days because of “kids who are more concerned with how their hair looks and how much baby oil they have on.” He specifically cited guys from Real World,which kind of narrows it down to one.

Evolution Poses - WWE RAW 10/23/2003
Even though I wasn’t watching wrestling all that much around this time, but I still tried to follow Goldberg’s tear through McMahon-Land as much as I could. During his his World Heavyweight Championship match against Shawn Michaels, Batista made his return to RAW by taking out Goldberg and breaking his ankle with a steel chair. As the match was being called as a DQ due to The Animal’s interference, Evolution walked out to the stage to welcome Batista back to their stable and to present him with the $100,000 bounty that Triple H put on Goldberg being taken out.
Also, you’d think that Flair would have eventually found some kneepads that fit during the two hundred years he’s been active.
