Batista has stated in several interviews that he would like to return to WWE for another short career because he does not consider himself retired from the ring.
“It is always an ongoing conversation with myself and WWE,” he said. “I never burnt that bridge, intentionally because I never had any reason to. I left for certain reasons. But I love professional wrestling and I love that company.”
