Batista is to make a return to WWE.
Radio and internet advertising promoted him as appearing at a live event in Las Vegas on February 16 2014, and now PWInsider have confirmed with WWE sources that the advertising is legit and the former WWE champion is indeed returning to the company.
It is being claimed that Batista’s official return is (or at least was) planned as a surprise for next month’s Royal Rumble, but the advertising was released prematurely, spoiling that surprise. Batista had been talking to WWE since earlier this year, but a filming on Marvel’s 2014 Guardians of the Galaxy put a halt to any plans for a return.
Batista, who left WWE in 2010 after disagreeing with the PG approach the company had started taking at that time, has spoken before of wishing to come back for one final run as opposed to a one-off match.
