WWE announced Batista's return for the January 20th edition of WWE RAW. JBL did voiceover work over the weekend at WWE HQ in Stamford, CT. The company decided to run a vignette after word leaked out. As noted, they weren't happy about it.
ORIGINAL: Batista has been putting on a lot of muscle for his return to WWE. It was previously reported that the plan was for Batista to make a surprise return at the Royal Rumble. One source says that he could win the Rumble and challenge Randy Orton for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship at WrestleMania but that is not confirmed by any means. The deal was set up by Triple H.
Batista isn't getting as good of a deal as Brock Lesnar, but he is getting a very, very good deal. It will include appearances at PPVs, RAW, SmackDown and live events. It's said to be a "close to full time" deal that will keep him in the company past WrestleMania 30.
