Dave Batista has previously talked openly about his desire to come back to WWE and have a full time run so it’s no surprise that WWE had contacted him for a big match at WrestleMania 34.
In a recent interview with Chad Dukes on 105.7 The Fan, the Animal revealed that WWE had reached him out as a potential partner for Ronda Rousey at the Show of Shows:
They reached out to me earlier this year to possibly come back and do that thing with Ronda. And I said that I would be willing to do it only if we teased something for me and Hunter to go to ‘Mania next year. And they said, ‘Yeah, that would be great. I love that idea.’
Though he then revealed that things didn’t go smoothly afterward and he just stopped hearing from the company after three weeks. He had then contacted Triple H too but his messages went unanswered:
I sent a text to Hunter. I was like, ‘Hey man, I don’t know if you put any more thought into what’s going on. I’m really excited about the possibilities.’ And I literally never heard back from them. They just stopped talking to me about it.
