Former main eventer Batista is reportedly “in direct talks” with Vince McMahon over a WWE return.
Batista’s last run resulted in “Bootista,” where fans revolted against The Animal’s one-night rise back to the top, winning the 2014 Royal Rumble over fan-favorite Daniel Bryan. Of course, Bryan would finagle his way into the main event at WrestleMania, pinning Batista clean to win the World Heavyweight Championship on the grandest stage of them all.
Whether this would be his final run is unknown. Batista has commented that he’d like his last match to be against Triple H.
Batista is a four-time World Heavyweight Champion, two-time WWE Champion, Monday Night Raw Tag Team Champion and three-time World Tag Team Champion.
