Re: Why was Mark Jindrak replaced by Batista in Evolution?
Maybe they just didn't want both of Evolution's future talents to look like pretty boys. Orton they cherished, but they wanted the other guy to stand out in a different way. Batista was that large, enforcer type and looked more like a star than Jindrak did anyway, so they chose him. I'm sure his friendship with HHH didn't hurt either.
Team Angle was similar, where you had Angle the veteran, Jindrak the pretty one, and Luther Reigns as the large enforcer.
