Batista Returning To WWE: Major Update

Batista Returning To WWE

An advertisement for an upcoming WWE Live Event in February has spoiled some major news – former WWE Champion Batista is returning to WWE.

As announced Friday evening, the official website of the Thomas & Mack Center is advertising the Batista will be appearing at the WWE Live Event from Las Vegas, Nevada on Sunday, February 16, 2014

Sources in WWE are saying this is not an advertising error as he is indeed coming back.

Advertising was reportedly released prematurely, spoiling WWE’s planned surprise (which would take place in time for WrestleMania season).

Batista, who is now 44-years-old, had been contemplating a return to WWE since last spring in discussions with Triple H. However, his acting schedule prevented him from making a commitment until recently.

Former WWE Diva Talks About Confrontation With BATISTA That Got Her Fired

One source speculated that Batista will appear for WWE until he is called to promote Guardians, which is scheduled to be released in theaters on August 1, 2014.

Batista last appeared for WWE in 2010, with his final match resulting in a loss to John Cena. He later stated in media interviews that he left WWE due to unhappiness with the company’s family-friendly product. He did not, however, rule out a return to the organization as he has said that he would be interested in having another run.

Comment Below and tell us who you want to see Batista wrestle at WrestleMania.

      Batista is gonna go right after AJ.

      • lala

        go to sleep

        • Prince Pretty

          batista would break punk in half

        • pwnez

          Awe, you mad because I bashed Roidtista? The dude sucks.

          • Pozessed

            To give him credit, he was pretty good near the time he was leaving, he had improved a lot since his debut.

          • pwnez

            I never liked him. Horrible in the ring and bad on the mic. The last few months before he left the WWE were his best and to me that’s not saying much at all.

          • DIVA_OF_THE_NIGHT

            Nope Batista doesn’t suck.

          • lala

            no cause AJ is CM Punk’s girlfiend.. and “GTS go to sleep” is his finisher


        You want to go after AJ Lee.

        • pwnez

          Who wouldn’t?

          • DIVA_OF_THE_NIGHT

            A lot of guys don’t like AJ Lee.

          • pwnez

            And a lot of guys do. I’m not exactly sure where you’re going with this. Was “You want to go after AJ Lee” supposed to be an insult or something?

          • DIVA_OF_THE_NIGHT

            No not at all.

          • Pozessed

            I’m one of them guys, to be honest.

          • DIVA_OF_THE_NIGHT

            At least you’re honest.

      • WCWPunk


    • Bro88

      HAHAHA or they better

  • Xyl

    Instead of bringing back these type of people, wouldn’t it be a MUCH better idea to build up other talents?

    Eh, WWE logic.

    • WCWJobber

      Well they’re building up talent (As seen on Smackdown when Big E helped out Cena and Punk) but its not like they will give Batista the title or give Lesnar the title so its not that bad like TNA where they made RVD TNA Champ a month after they signed him

      • aaaaaaaaaaa

        Actually its in lesnars contract to be WWE champion.

    • Bushwald Sexyface

      Gee, let’s see. Roman Reigns. Seth Rollins. Dean Ambrose. Big E. Bryan. Cody Rhodes. The Wyatts. Hmm…seems to me like they’re setting themselves up pretty well for the future. Pay more attention.

      • Xyl

        Roman is probably the only one that can be taken seriously, as everyone else within WWE eventually gets burried anyhow due to not being up to WWE’s “par”

      • guest

        Sure they are lol

    • Quite Frankly

      You’re kidding right? This isn’t in any way to hurt any talent. I doubt Batista will do anything but put people over. This right here is not a bad move by WWE. By having Batista return they will be making loads of money as well, so to sum up what WWE sees in Batista is that his return, even for a short time, will be “Best For Business.”

  • WCWJobber

    Honestly i always liked Batista he got to much hate, oh and his heel run in 2010 was really good hopefully he returns a heel but i doubt it

    • bayarea08

      I thought he was really good from the time he captured his first World title to his draft back to raw.

  • Quite Frankly

    “Spotlight Now!”

    No really this guy is great. Heel or Face. Been a fan of him since his debut. Also his “all you do is shake hands with little boys and kiss fat girls” remark to John Cena was hilarious. Thanks

    • God’s Diamond

      lulz yea that was awesome. and it was kissing babies and hugging fat girls. I know cuz it’s one of my fave promos ever hahah.

      • stormgreyeagle

        somebodys gotta hug fat girls


    If he does come back…Anyone think maybe they will push him for Royal Rumble or possably Batista V Brock at WM????

    • Bushwald Sexyface

      Someone mentioned Hunter. I could see that happening.

      • Pfc Mark Kevin Apalisok


  • ddp

    So will it be CM Punk or Dolph Ziggle who will be the first to rant about Batista returning and taking a full timer’s spot on WrestleMania?

  • Guest

    YES YES YES!! finally

  • Progressed_Now

    finally!!! about time someone who can “legitimize” the WWE.

    stupid site doubleposting!!

  • Jeremy-County Roberts

    he’s 44 now? Dang the years fly by.

  • Black Berry

    he’s coming back to whack cena…yes yes yes

  • Ares

    Is it possible to build up younger talent AND return stars to draw in attention to the product? Because some of you people act as if that is not possible.

    • G.I.R.L.

      This is WWE we’re talking about.

    • jam jam

      Langston had said this week he wanted to wrestle batista so there you have it.

      • Ares

        that would be awesome lol too bad Batista probably wouldn’t come back as a heel though.

    • Prince Pretty

      Jericho? He’s done it for 2 years now.

      • Ares

        I know that, I was talking about the IWC complaining about stars coming in. Jericho is my third favorite of all time for that very reason. The Dude is a legenddddd

  • lala

    batista vs BROCK LESNAR!!! THE BEAST VS the animal

    • omega riddler

      What makes you think that would be any better than Lesnar vs Goldberg

      • lala

        well cuz they wouldnt be retiring for good after the match like DUH

  • Richard Johnson

    cool shitista is comin back!give me a reason not to watch raw or smackdown for period of time.

    • Dale C Twigg

      Seriously. Like the product doesn’t suck enough that Batista (One of the only reasons I would actually bother to watch) is going to hurt it? Not Super Cena’s constant title contention or Stone Cold Steve Orton holding the title now? The man is a monster and will not be put down by anyone. WWE needs a big enforcer type who doesn’t rely on his buddies for help. I hope he comes in and is totally against Orton and the Corporat………the Authority.

    • Marvin B.

      We don’t care if you watch or not

  • bambam

    Muy Buneo!!! Love to see Evolution Reunion!!!

  • Dale C Twigg

    He need to work against the Authority.


    Batista coming back is what’s best for business.

  • Kris Mystery

    Well somewhat better than Goldberg i guess.

  • Universe

    Face Batista is the best!

  • Pfc Mark Kevin Apalisok


  • d1l2g3

    Evolution should have a run in or something

  • Universe

    Batista Batista Batista !!!

  • captaindaddy72

    Awesome!!!!! Welcome back Batista lol

  • Godzilla2J

    I really cant believe this has leaked online this much didnt see it coming ill believe it when Dave comes out and ohhh yeah guys get prepared for Cena vs Batista after WM … oh god .

    • RumbleRuff

      I agree. If WWE confirmed this was true then why did the venue website all of a sudden take down that last line on their website? Did they want to slow down sales? Some people will take any bait very easily.

  • Godzilla2J

    Batista vs Bryan
    Batista vs Punk (again
    Batista vs Lesnar

    Thats all I see being entertaining unless they do something where he comes back face and goes after Triple H and the Authority .

  • JamieEvsxx

    if Batista comes up with any more lines like “Basketballs DON’T hold grudges!” and “You keep on hugging babies and kissing fat girls” if he returns…I’ll be intrigued…=P…plus I think it’d be pretty cool to hear his theme song again, t’was an awesome song…=)

  • Scott Kinnard

    My guess is Batista will fight either Lesnar or Taker at WM. The only other opponent that would make sense is HHH but it’s looking like he may be fighting Punk.

  • ibeBrave

    NOO wwe should have him return in the rumble have someone like fandango come out number 1 then number 2 everyones just waiting to see who it is then the animals entrance theme drops THAT WOULD BE CRAZYYY that place will go ballistic wwe needs him in the rumble

  • Bad News Buzzard Follower

    well i must be Russel Crowe kudos to anyone who remembers the comment

  • matthew

    alright welcome back

  • Victor

    who would think batista is older then the rock. thats crazy

  • Umair

    I guess its going to be Batista vs Ryback Or Reigns

  • oD

    ‘His acting schedule prevented him from making a commitment’…

    What acting? Last movie I saw him in was Riddick and when he talked, he sounded just as boring as he was when he had a mic in a WWE ring. He just stood around with a gun looking like a moron. Apparently ANYONE can be an actor these days. Take steroids and look dumb on a big screen and just talk and not ‘act’. I think it is bad when a digitally created dog in the movie was a better actor than any movie Batista has been in.

  • Punk2k14

    they’ve removed his name from the list to appear on the show

  • PunkFan#1

    Batista or CM Punk should face Randy Orton at WM 30 and win the WWE World Heavyweight Championship!

  • Dixie Carter

    Seen more talent in that midget wwe uses for skits than this over rated piece of junk. I was gonna sign him to the big leagues but I decided not to now he is crawling back to the indies, WWE!
