Batista is expected to take some time off from WWE shortly.
Since returning on the Raw before Royal Rumble, Batista has worked a full-time schedule, wrestling on TV and pay-per-view. However he is not advertised for any events after Extreme Rules on May 4, with promotional work for his role in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, due out in August.
When Batista returned in January, it is understood this disappearance was scheduled as Marvel will want all Guardians cast members available for the expected worldwide press appearances.
Depending on worldwide release dates for the film, Batista could be off WWE TV for a majority of the remainder of 2014.
