"Batista", one of the most popular wrestlers on the WWE circuit, was teamed up in a scene with characters Toadie (Ryan Moloney) and Callum Jones (Morgan Baker) who are wrestling fans on and off the show. Young Morgan, 11, had his "Batista" doll at the ready to be signed by the champ.
At a whopping 6ft 6in and 130 kg, the Neighbours location caravans for wardrobe and make-up proved a challenge for the big fella and a separate area was set-up.
With only the morning to learn the script, word is the four-time World Heavyweight Champion nailed his lines in only three takes.....but then again, was the director really going to ask him for one more take?
Batista's episode will air late June.
