— WWE announced during RAW this past week that Batista would be making his return to the company on the January 20th episode of RAW. That is the RAW before the Royal Rumble pay-per-view. They are expected to reveal on that RAW that Batista will be a participant in the Royal Rumble match. As previously reported, Batista’s return was inadvertently spoiled by website and radio announcements revealing that he would be at house shows in February. Now that WWE has confirmed that he’s returning, Batista has been added back to all the advertising for WWE RAW live events.
— The Kingston-Whig Standard has a new interview with Cody Rhodes.
— Luke Boughton confirmed to us that at the WWE house show in Madison Square Garden Thursday night, it was advertised that the company would return to the arena on March 8th, 2014. Batista, John Cena and Daniel Bryan were all advertised. Tickets are on sale now using the presale code WWERAW.
