News broke Friday night that Dave Batista is advertised to return to WWE at some point next year (See also – Batista Advertised For Special Return To WWE Next Year). While the one confirmed listing is the February 16, 2014 live event in Las Vegas, Nevada, there are others expected to surface.
These listings seem to indicate some sort of deal has been reached between WWE and Batista for him to return the company in time for Wrestlemania XXX. Details regarding Batista’s standing with WWE are still unknown but there are things we do know.
Batista was at the November 22, 2013 WWE NXT taping in Winter Park, Florida. As we reported at the time, the former World Heavyweight Champion met with Triple H back in March [at the NXT tapings] to discuss a short-term contract for him to return. I still haven’t heard why he was there last month but one could assume a deal has been reached.
