TRIPLE H shockingly pulled Batista’s nose ring out with pliers at WrestleMania 35 during their No Holds Barred match.
The former Evolution stable-mates faced off in a thriller at The MetLife Arena in New York last night with a showstopping performance by both veterans.
Batista – who tripped over the rope on his way into the ring – already had three wins over The Game on his record and wanted a fourth to end his in-ring career forever.
During the match Triple H grabbed a tool box and cracked into the Hollywood actor’s skull before using as metal chain to tear into Batista’s face and throwing him into the steel steps and taking a set of pliers to his fingers.
With Batista then pinned under a metal chair, The Game ripped out a ring from his nose, leaving the piercing wound bleeding.
Batista almost got the win when he drove Triple H into the canvas and got a two-count. But The Game roared back with a Powerbomb onto the steel steps and a Pedigree.
When WWE legend Ric Flair appeared at ringside to distract Batista, Triple H connected with a sledgehammer and another Pedigree before getting the pin.
After losing the battle Batista took to Twitter to officially announce his WWE retirement – 17 years after debuting.
