Batista upset that fans chanted for Daniel Bryan during WWE Royal Rumble 2014

According to a Jan. 27 post from Bleacher Report, 45-year-old WWE superstar Batista was legitimately upset that the fans on hand for Sunday night's Royal Rumble were booing him and chanting for Daniel Bryan to appear in the 30-man competition.

Batista, a six-time world champion, reportedly flipped out on Pittsburgh wrestling fans at the historic WWE event, by mocking Bryan's "Yes!" chant and giving the middle finger to them.

The former WWE heavyweight champ apparently got into a bit of a verbal spat with a wrestling fan who had given him the middle finger.

Batista was shown on camera telling the fan that he'd "snap him in half," and then proceeded to flip the bird at him.

The WWE legend then did Bryan's "Yes!" chant at the top of the ramp, while fans heartily booed him.

Bryan uses his pointer fingers to do the "Yes!" chant, but Batista reportedly used his middle fingers while mocking the bearded wrestler.

Bryan lost to Bray Wyatt in one of the opening matches on the Royal Rumble card, and fans were hoping he'd pull double duty by making an entrance in the 30-man competition. However, it wasn't meant to be.

Throughout the Royal Rumble, Pittsburgh fans chanted "Daniel Bryan! Daniel Bryan!" It was clear they wanted him to be a part of the Royal Rumble and maybe even win the competition.

Unfortunately for the Pittsburgh wrestling fans on hand for the event, Rey Mysterio came out with the final spot in the Royal Rumble.

At present time, it's not clear if Batista engaging with the crowd was all just part of an act, or if he was legitimately upset.

There's also a decent chance that Batista mocking Bryan was just a way to build a possible feud between the two men.
