The long rumored return of “The Animal” Dave Batista seems to be moving more towards the plausible than the impossible.
The former 4-time World Heavyweight Champion and 2-time WWE Champion’s name has come up consistently over the last few months as the speculation over WrestleMania 30 matches start to come together. Nothing solid has been leaked until now. The Thomas and Mack Center on the University of Las Vegas campus is advertising Batista for WWE’s “Road to WrestleMania” live event on Sunday, February 16. The former champion is featured on the event’s poster as well as in the promotion of the event. The website states:
WWE’s Road to Wrestlemania will make a stop at Las Vegas’ Thomas and Mack Center on Sunday, February 16. Don’t miss your favorite WWE Superstars including: CM Punk, The Shield, Big Show, Kane, the WWE Divas and much more! Plus, see the special return of “The Animal” Batista, LIVE!
Whether this was a preemptive post by the UNLV website or a mistake on someone’s part, it certainly looks like “The Animal” will be back on the WWE roster before the snow melts on the east coast. You can view the poster and ticket page for yourself below:
