Former WWE star Dave Bautista is being advertised for a “Road to WrestleMania” house show in February in Las Vegas, Nevada. The house show is scheduled for February 16, which is the Sunday before the Elimination Chamber PPV.
The advertising on the arena website reads: “Don’t miss your favorite WWE Superstars including: C.M. Punk, The Shield, Big Show, Kane, the WWE Divas, and much more! Plus, see the special return of ‘The Animal’ Batista, LIVE!”
Batista has not wrestled in over 3 years but appears to be returning to WWE for a match at WrestleMania 30. It is not clear from the advertising if Batista will work a match at the house show, but if that is the case then it would indicate Batista returning in a full-time capacity. The former WWE Champion has been talking about a comeback for several months ever since he filmed for the most recent Triple H: Thy Kingdom Come DVD. It is expected that he will be returning to the company around the time of the 2014 WWE Royal Rumble pay-per-view or possibly beforehand.
