As PWMania.com previously reported, former WWE Champion Dave Batista has been working to get back into wrestling shape, and is fast approaching his 290-pound billed weight, which is what he wrestled at during his last WWE run, according to Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer. Batista left WWE in 2010 to pursue his interests in acting, as well as a career in Mixed Martial Arts.
Batista has stated publicly that he “definitely” wants to return to WWE, and even named The Rock, Brock Lesnar, Triple H and Undertaker as stars he wants to work with.
With The Rock vs. Brock Lesnar plans up in the air, it is possible that WWE could bring Batista in to fill in Rock’s role, who was injured in his WrestleMania match with John Cena.
Batista does have a role in an upcoming major movie, Marvel’s big comic book movie “Guardians of the Galaxy,” which is scheduled to start filming this summer.
