We witnessed the return of Dave ‘The Animal’ Batista this past Monday, just six days before the WWE Royal Rumble pay per view. Now it has been awhile since Batista has been with the company and it’s great to see him back, but some people are wondering why he returned in the first place.
The creative team for this company have been cycling through main event guys and now have to cut down main event spots when it comes to the WWE World Heavyweight Championship. I imagine that Randy Orton or John Cena would be holding the titles for awhile, which means that only a couple guys will get a shot or be involved in a story-line with them.
You still have guys like Daniel Bryan, Brock Lesnar, CM Punk, Roman Reigns, Big E. Langston who could all be getting shots at the unified titles. Adding one more heavyweight to the picture seems a big crowded, but like I said before, it’s great to see him back.
Now he did an interview with WWE.com that was uploaded on their YouTube channel about why he came back to the WWE. In the video he talks about how he actually did break his back in his final match, which was against John Cena at Over The Limit.
Batista then talks about the time he spent in the world of mixed martial arts. He was affiliated with one of the most popular families in the world, The Gracie Family.
Here’s a look at the video.
