Throwing big money at genuine wrestling legends isn't why WCW is dead though. It's giving the likes of Virgil and Horace Hogan the big contracts. (as well as others who weren't even on TV)

Batista would be a HUGE signing for AEW. He's a legit name that casual people know of. He's a movie star and would show that a 'WWE Guy' could well join a different company.

I don't think it's possible and if anything it's just a bargaining tool for Batista to get what he wants.

Re: Batista in talks with WWE and AEW

Batista with his 2014 anti smark/anti little guy gimmick in AEW would probably do very good business. Say what you will about the guy, he's the second biggest star that's been created in wrestling since the end of the Attitude Era and a lot of old fans who have been run off in recent years likely would be interested in seeing him

Re: Batista in talks with WWE and AEW

Whilst Batista would be HUGE for AEW...I'm really only interested in seeing Batista go for one last run in the WWE.
I'm hoping its possible in the next year or so.

Current:
Reigns / Rollins / Bray / Aleister / AJ / Street Profits
Inner Circle / Janela / Omega / Darby
All-Time:
Undertaker / Y2J / Batista / John Cena
Brock Lesnar / Steve Austin / The Rock / Goldberg

WWE + AEW

Hoping we get Batista v Brock @SS to make Brock more credible when he loses to Seth at WM.

Although I’d rather Lesnar lose

Tell your boyfriend if he even exists that he shouldn't trust you, because I'm stealing his bitch.

In regard to reports that WWE is working on bringing Dave Bautista back to the company, PWInsider.com can confirm that Bautista met with company officials last Thursday in Connecticut.

Bautista, 50, appeared last year at the Smackdown 1000 event, teasing a potential match against Triple H during a reunion of the old Evolution faction. With Triple H cleared to return to the ring, it would make sense to have that bout at Wrestlemania 35.

Bautista was just signed to be one of the top supportings role in the forthcoming feature film version of Dune, the classic science fiction novel, which reunites him with Blade Runner 2049 director Denis Villeneuve. The plan is to try and launch Dune into a feature film franchise with the first film tentatively slated to begin filming in March.

Re: Batista in talks with WWE and AEW

I can't see him going to AEW, but I wish he would. He was an amazing heel before he left WWE the first time. His heel run was one of the very few good things to come from the PG Era. And the smarks who booed him when he returned don't deserve to see him in a WWE ring again.
