Batista 2013

PWInsider is reporting that Batista’s return announcement that aired on Monday’s Raw was planned early last week and not a last minute idea because of the online leak that took place over the weekend.

WWE’s original planned has always called for Batista to return at the Raw before the Royal Rumble and be entered into the Royal Rumble match. Reasons for Batista’s return at the Raw before the Rumble has to do with the company wanting a spike in the ratings for that show.
