Re: Batista in talks with WWE and AEW
I never thought I'd be saying the WWE needs a 50 year-old Batista, but the WWE needs a 50 year-old Batista. The WWE product currently is a pile of shit. Even more so than the last several years, which is saying something. Batista is a big name with tremendous charisma who can put on a solid match if properly conditioned and working with the right guys. His matches with Ziggler in 2014 were really good and he was apart of 2 candidates for MOTY in the triple threat at WM and the match vs. the Shield. Despite the run initially being nothing short of a disaster (not his fault at all), he made it work in the end and put over four guys which eventually made them superstars.
If WWE were gonna do Batista/HHH at WM I think he would've returned already. I think it's just too late. But if he ends up appearing at AEW I personally will bloody love it. It will be a kick in the groin to the WWE who ultimately deserves it for shitting on him in outstanding fashion since he left in 2010 (then only piping up to try and ride his success like they were apart of it). There is great potential at both AEW and WWE for him to end his wrestling career and I'd be happy to see him in either - but AEW would be more satisfying. He'll get in the WWE HOF either way.
