Backstage Talk on Why WWE Didn’t Promote Batista and Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy

– We noted yesterday that there’s a lot of speculation within WWE that Batista may not be back as he’s experiencing major success with Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy. One WWE source noted to PWInsider that the company ignored Batista being in Guardians of the Galaxy because he wasn’t on their TV as a performer.

Apparently the Guardians producers didn’t want to buy WWE advertising for the movie. One source in WWE speculated that Marvel didn’t want the movie to become a “wrestler movie.”

There’s also a feeling within WWE that the company downplayed Batista in Guardians because they feel he’s not coming back any time soon.

    Made zero sense to not push the movie while Batista was there. I would love to read the detailed reasoning behind that.

  • Don Kim

    Well, the current WWE doesn’t really need Batista
    And he’s probably gonna make a lot more money in Hollywood now so it’s good for both parties.

    Marvel needs no help from the WWE!

    Who cares, good for him.
