Former WWE World champion Batista appeared on Spike TV's MMA Uncensored to help promote his 10/6 MMA fighting debut in Providence, Rhode Island.

Over the course of the show, Batista was asked about his interest in returning to WWE. He commented that "of course" he'd like to return down the line and noted that he left on good terms and the door is open for him to come back. Batista said that he'd like to go back and do something before it's done and quipped, "Let's hope the whole PG thing blows over so I can go back and do wrestling the way I like to do wrestling."

When asked who he would want to work with, he noted that he's remained close with Triple H and namechecked The Undertaker before noting that he's never had the chance to do anything with Brock Lesnar and that's a program he'd like to do.

When asked about the idea of fighting Lesnar in a MMA fight, Batista said if that was offered to him, he'd take it if the deal was right but obviously, would prefer to face him in a pro wrestling setting.

On the same show, Muhammed "King Mo" Lawal announced on MMA Uncensored Live that his in-ring wrestling debut will take place "sometime in October" on iMPACT!.
