Sources within the sports-entertainment organization confirmed to PWInsider.com tonight that this is not an advertising error as he is indeed coming back. Advertising was released prematurely, spoiling WWE's planned surprise (which one source speculated as taking place at the Royal Rumble next month).
Batista, who is now 44-years-old, had been contemplating a return to WWE since last spring in discussions with Triple H. However, his acting schedule prevented him from making a commitment until recently.
One source speculated that Batista might just appear for WWE until he is called to promote Guardians, which is scheduled to be released in theaters on August 1, 2014.
He has stated in media interviews that he left WWE due to unhappiness with the company's family-friendly product. He did not, however, rule out a return to the organization as he has said that he would be interested in having another run.
