Former WWE World Champion Batista recently stated during an interview on WWE Hall Of Famer Jim Ross‘ podcast, The Ross Report, that he’d be open to returning to WWE for one last run. Per a report from Dave Meltzer of Wrestling Observer Newsletter, “The Animal” is actually serious about returning to the company for one final lengthy run (six months to a year) as a full-time competitor.
Batista does have the option to work a schedule similar to that of Goldberg or Brock Lesnar, however, the belief is that he prefers something more along the lines of what Chris Jericho usually does. A key issue with a return for Batista, however, would be if he is offered another role in a Hollywood film during his time under contract with WWE.
The film company and Batista would have to include WWE in negotiations because the company owns your contract when you’re signed. This could make getting a deal done between Batista and WWE difficult.
