These two were part of the same stable and faced each other in remorseless battles. They have quite a historic rivalry in WWE. They have bought the best as well as worst out of each other. Here are five interesting facts from their storied rivalry over the years.
#5 Triple H rewarded Batista $100,000 for breaking Goldberg's ankle
The Animal Batista, who is now keen on destroying Triple H, used to be a trusted mercenary for him. Batista and Triple H were part of one of WWE's most successful stables, "Evolution." They worked with each other through thick and thin. A lot of time Batista destroyed everyone who crossed paths with Triple H. The WCW legend Goldberg was no exception.
Triple H was feuding with Goldberg during late 2003. "The Cerebral Assassin" announced $100,000 as bounty for anyone who would take down his rival. Three weeks after that announcement was made, Batista returned to WWE from an injury and inflicted a ruthless attack on Goldberg, earning the bounty as a result.
One may well expect a similar assault by Batista on Triple H prior to WrestleMania 35.
