It could be for longer than that...
UPDATED:PWInsider reports that they have confirmed with sources inside the company that Batista will be returning. One source believes Batista was coming back as a surprise entrant at the Royal Rumble, which the ads have now spoiled.
The site says that Batista had been talking about a return as far back as last spring but was unable to do anything because of his acting career, including Riddick and Guardians of the Galaxy. He has been wanting to come back for a final run in the company. One source believes he will be working with WWE until he is needed for promotional work for Guardians of the Galaxy.
ORIGINAL: Batista appears to be returning to WWE for WrestleMania 30. Radio advertising for the February 16th house show in Las Vegas, Nevada is advertising him as being booked. The Wrestling Observer reports that he will be returning for the full WrestleMania season.
It's worth noting that Batista's new film, Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy, opens on August 1st which will give his appearances through WrestleMania a good chance for the film to get some early marketing to WWE fans.
