#4 Chris Jericho
Batista first recorded a victory over Chris Jericho in January 2004 when he teamed with Randy Orton & Ric Flair to defeat Y2J & Rob Van Dam in a 3-on-2 handicap match on Raw. One month later, Evolution (Batista & Flair) defeated Y2J & Christian to retain the World Tag Team titles.
As the years progressed and both men moved away from the tag team scene, they had nine one-on-one matches with each other, with one of the most memorable encounters coming at Cyber Sunday 2008 when, with Steve Austin assigned as special guest referee, Batista picked up the victory over Jericho to win the World Heavyweight Championship.
Overall, “The Animal” lost more matches than he won against “The Ayatollah of Rock ‘n’ Rolla”, but he still managed to win 14 of their 39 televised meetings.
