Batista returned to WWE in the opening segment of this week's Monday Night Raw. The company has been running vignettes for his return shortly after news accidentally leaked online late last year.
Batista came out and told WWE World Heavyweight Champion Randy Orton that he was back to win the 30-man Royal Rumble match on Sunday and to win the title at Wrestlemania XXX. He told Orton to "deal with it."
Batista hasn't been on WWE television since 2010.
