Recent pictures of Batista from his Twitter page @DaveBautista:
Former WWE superstar Batista has been working out vigorously in recent months and is now back to his WWE weight of 280 pounds, according to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter.
Batista dropped considerable weight when he began training in Mixed Martial Arts, where he won his [unspectacular] first professional fight last year. A second fight never came to fruition and Batista’s MMA gym in Tampa closed last year.
Since leaving WWE, Batista has landed a few solid acting roles, including roles in The Man with the Iron Fists (Brass Body), Riddick (Diaz) and Guardians of the Galaxy (Drax the Destroyer).
Batista has stated publicly that he “definitely” wants to return to WWE, and even named Brock Lesnar, The Undertaker and Triple H as the superstars he wants to work with. With him getting back in shape, a return to WWE might not be far off for The Animal.
