Is Batista still under a WWE Contract?


While Batista was welcomed with open hands when he first returned to WWE back in 2014, it didn’t take long for fans to turn on him which forced WWE to turn him into a heel.

Not long after this, he left the company to promote the Guardians Of The Galaxy and never returned, which left people questioning what was his contractual status.

Recently a fan asked Mike Johnson of Pwinsider if the Animal was still under contract because he left only to promote the film, and Mike said this:

“Unless WWE had a clause in their deal that Batista’s contract would freeze until his return, no.  I was the first to report that internally, management didn’t believe he was ever going to return to complete that run and as it turned out, years later, he never did.”

While this answer doesn’t exactly confirm if Batista is indeed under contract or not, it’s unlikely that WWE would have kept the contract frozen for so long even if they had such clause in it. Since Batista has also said that he would only like to return for a non-TV role his contract is most likely terminated by now.

    It really depends on what contract he had. If it was a contract over a specific time, then it would expire unless it contained a specific amount of appearances that were not met. If time and appearances were both met, then the contract is done. If Batista did not meet the terms of the contract, then he would be in breach of contract if he did not fulfill those obligations.
    And maybe just maybe, Batista and WWE had meetings that Mike Johnson has no knowledge of, and came to an agreement on ending the contract.

    As with anything I have just said, Johnsons knowledge and mine are the same. And we would both be just speculating.

    Simple fact is, if he was still under contract, he would either return or WWE would take legal action to get him to fulfill that contract. As neither of them has happened, it is safe to assume he is no longer under contract.
    Especially if you remember how Rey Mysterio had to stay beyond his contract due to being out injured and not fulfilling the terms of his contract.
