According to sources close to the WWE, Dave Batista is the new general manager of RAW.

Batista was injured last week on RAW by the hands of Randy Orten, and because of

this, was unable to put his title on the line this week.

Many people believe this could lead to his career being over. as he faced his 2nd major

injury in almost a year, which could lead to the end of his career.

With Randy Orten winning the WWE Title earlier tonight, it shall be interesting to see if

he can survive with Batista at the helm.

It could be great trouble for Legacy, whos goal is keeping the title in Orten hands. is reportedly going to make the announcement on their site in just a few hours.

What a great boost for RAW. No owner, and new GM!
