WWE is not giving up on Batista.
A major topic of discussion today with WWE producers was Batista, who many of the producers have avoided discussing since the feeling is Triple H pushed hard for his return, which has been a monumental flop so far.
However, many felt Batista had his "first good weekend" on the road at the house shows, and that he just needed some time to adjust to the lack of interest in his return.
"Now that Batista is a heel and they're not running from the BOOTISTA taunts, WWE feels they can play into that," one person in the meeting exclusively told WrestleZone.
"No one disagreed, because he's seen as being HHH's project and going against him right now is bad for job security."
