Earlier this weekend ticketing company UNLVTickets.com spoiled the potential return of former world champion Dave "The Animal" Batista, advertising his presence at a WWE live event on February 16th. UNLV is the official ticketing site of the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas, where WWE will be that night. Also, a representative for the Phoenix Suns confirmed Batista for another WWE live event on February 15th.
As of Saturday night, all images and mentions of Batista have been taken off the Thomas & Mack Center event page. Furthermore, VP of Digital Operations for the Suns Jeramie McPeek has removed the original Tweet he sent out about the February 15th event.
Wrestlezone talked to a source within WWE that confirmed there are plans to bring Batista back on the Road to WrestleMania, and to have him work with the company until promotion begins for his next film. However, it will be interesting to see if/how that plays out in the coming months, now that the internet has made his return public knowledge. Dave Bautista hasn't made a comment on Twitter since early November. In the past, he has been very outspoken when shutting down rumors of his return to the ring.
