    Boring in the ring and on the mic. Yawn. No thanks.

    • GOR

      Still a lot more interesting then Cena !

  • BIG M

    Didn’t WNW already break this story days ago.

    • JR Texx (Jamie)

      That was for an appearance in feb, then it was removed, now it looks like he’s back in jan.

      They might aswell just made him return at the Rumble.

      • BIG M

        Didn’t think he would have the time due to guardians of the galaxy but than again don’t know how big his role is in that movie.

        • jdl

          He plays a Drax the Destroyer, one of the principle members of the Guardians of the Galaxy. If the movie focuses on its characters even half as well as Avengers did, he’ll appear in a large portion of the movie as one of the main characters.

      • Rus

        I was actually thinking wwe made the ad about batistas return because of the leak

  • jdl

    Hopefully all of the big men, by which I mean Cryback, take Batista’s return as a means to learn how to actually portray a big man in the ring.

    • GOR

      Hopefully Batista will return n teach Ryback few lessons, both in & out of the ring !

    • Ben

      They’d be better off watching Undertaker. Granted, he’s only back for one match a year at this point, but his teaching in one match would be a much higher quality than anything Batista could put together in a year’s worth of matches. And yes, that is intended as praise for Taker as well as detracting from Batista.

      • Lebron James

        You’re definitely one of those idiots I was referring to. The hate is strong in you bruh. Batista is good, try not being so miserable.

        • Ben

          I don’t hate Batista, I respect anyone who has the work ethic and passion he has (not to mention the interview in which he put Christian over in a big way). I find his work boring, especially on the mic, but that’s not worthy of hate. Besides, if you really think that saying Undertaker is light years better than just about anyone is “hating” on them, you need a new definition of hate. I doubt you’ll find too many people who would leave Taker out of their top 10 lists of the greatest wrestlers ever.

          Appreciate the personal attacks, by the way… stay classy kiddo.

        • Mysterion

          Why is he good? Because you say so? We’re not all Batista fans “bruh”. It’s not being miserable to have a differing opinion to you.

  • Lebron James

    Great to have a true big man back in the business. His work goes very under appreciated by these idiots who expect every single wrestler to be as technical as Bret Hart. He’s a powerhouse, and he portrayed one well! I’m glad he’s back. Hopefully things will get more interesting with him back in the fold.

    • Ben

      He was also an injury machine and almost as boring as Orton on the mic. There ARE good big men in the business, but Batista wasn’t one of them.

  • Jasont2300

    So, Batista vs CM Punk at Wm 30 if punk isnt in the title match… I bet thats wat will happen

    • GOR

      Batista vs Ortan for the title. They had a good rivalry back wen Ortan was a heel. Now the situation is the same !

      • Mysterion

        ORTON! OR-TON!!! Jesus, you watch it every week and can’t spell his name.

  • FDS

    Interesting the voiceover was done by Jim Ross.

  • smark calloway

    he ” walks alone ” no more

  • JR Texx (Jamie)

    I’m wondering whether he will return as a babyface or a heel. He’s better as a heel but I think he will probably get a babyface return? ah who knows.
