Batista spent over a decade in pro wrestling, but is now a big-shot Hollywood actor entertaining fans in the No. 1 movie in the country. He even goes by the stage name of “Dave Bautista.” What a sellout.
While the front half of Batista’s WWE career was pretty polarizing, most wrestling fans were fully on board with his elitist heel character by the time he made his first departure from the company. His most recent return was a mixed bag, but in retrospect (after he tapped out to Daniel Bryan at WrestleMania XXX), pretty much everyone agrees it was a tremendous success.
And especially after his turn as Drax the Destroyer in the two Guardians of the Galaxy films, wrestling fans are wondering when (if ever) Batista will return to WWE again. During an appearance on the Talk is Jericho podcast, Batista told Chris Jericho that he’s actually talked to WWE about one last comeback, and knows exactly what storyline he wants if he returns. Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like it will happen anytime soon. (Transcript via Wrestling Inc.)
