The commercial featured Michelle McCool, Maria, Maryse, Alicia Fox and Eve Torres. You can see a screencap of the Divas in the commercial at http://i34.tinypic.com/f4eil5.jpg. Divas not featured: Victoria and Natalya.
Batista continues to make the media rounds in India. In an interview with TimesOfIndia.com, he says pro wrestling is "dangerous and not for everyone. You can get killed during a match." When asked if WWE is really about entertainment, he says, "Yes, our job is to entertain fans. But our fights are real. WWE is for fans across the world. They like the backstage drama. It adds a soap drama twist to proceedings." He also talks about his start in pro wrestling, his rise to the top of the industry and more. Some highlights: Breaking into WWE:"The WWE training program is like boot camp. You wrestle day in and day out. You get in shape and toughen up. Lots of guys don't make it out of there. And less than 1% actually make it to the top from there." Backstage Heat: "Our business is social, but being quiet is my nature. It became a problem after I joined Evolution. The other competitors who had been around for some time did not take kindly to the fact that I made it to the top so fast. It, though, would have been crazy to miss the opportunity to be part of something like Evolution." Hollywood Aspirations: "I do have a few offers that I may follow up on. I want to branch into the mainstream media. Hopefully, that'll be my legacy."
