We haven’t seen Batista since 2014 after he left WWE following his run through WrestleMania XXX that was stopped dead in it’s tracks thanks to the Yes Movement. He hasn’t wrestled since leaving the Evolution stable’s reformation but it’s been easy to find him in the movies he’s starred in.
Batista spoke to What Culture Wrestling where he answered a pretty big question about his pro wrestling future.

“I would have to be a few different things and I have to say it’s something I think about daily. I love it. I have a passion for wrestling.”
“I feel like in the core of me that’s just who I am. I’m a physical performer and I miss it every day. But I think 1) it would have to be the right time 2) it would have to be the right opponent.”
“That’s pretty much it. It would just have to make sense and then you know the last time I went back was with really good intentions and I felt I wasn’t delivered what I was promised and that’s just creatively.”
“It would have to make sense when it comes to timing because not only would I have to be free but you also have to factor in there’s a risk that I would be injured and if I would be injured then I would need time to rehabilitate myself so I always have to factor those things in.”

It sounds like Batista is ready to go as long as it makes sense for him and his busy schedule. Only time will tell if he really walks away from the Guardians Of The Galaxy films after they fired Gunn, but it looks like The Animal has other options.

I love pro wrestling and hate BS. These two things drive me. Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News. Worked in finance before realizing pro wrestling journalism made much less sense. Pro beachballs at pro wrestling shows, pro dives if someone catches, anti bullies, olives, and pineapples on pizza.
