There has been some confusion as to when Batista’s injury actually occurred. WWE.com stated that he tore his hamstring at SummerSlam, but that seems far-fetched because you would have blatantly noticed it at the pay per view if it had happened.
Other sources say he got injured on the European tour and actually tried working through the injury worsening it as a result. You could see Batista limping on Raw as he chased Randy Orton to the ring, prior to being punted in the head.
At this point, it seems the earliest Batista could return is June. However, it is expected to be August more likely.
Batista is on his way to Birmingham, Alabama today for exams and will be receiving surgery soon.
