Blog reader Jake Butikas (a writer who also manages Jake “The Snake” Roberts’ MySpace page) further points out that Batista has been bothered throughout his WWE career by torn triceps tendons. (Jake Butikas is not the same correspondent as in the previous post.) We’ve noted earlier that this is one of those injuries — like John Cena’s recent torn pectoral — that seem to happen a lot to steroid freaks but not at all to anyone else.
One of these Batista triceps incidents was said to have occurred in a match with Mark Henry. An earlier one happened in 2003, and it was reported at the time on the WWE’s website that during rehab Batista “re-tore his tricep in a freak accident while jogging with his wife.” Bear in mind that the tricep is in the back of the upper arm.
A witch hunt, indeed.
