Former WWE Superstar Batista was backstage at Sunday’s Royal Rumble PPV from Orlando and met with Vince McMahon about an appearance at WrestleMania 32, according to Ryan Satin over at ProWrestlingSheet.com. Batista reportedly declined Vince’s pitch for a one-time ‘guest appearance’ gig that would not have required him to wrestle a match.
The 2014 Royal Rumble winner has been outspoken about WWE’s creative process since his last run with the company went completely off the rails in part due to the Daniel Bryan YES! Movement. During an interview with HeyUGuys last April, Batista said he’s open to wrestling for WWE one day, but only at live events, since WWE’s scripts “aren’t that great.”
