Chris Jericho has already done it. Batista is thinking about doing it. Now, all eyes are on Dwayne Johnson to see if he would be interested in returning to WWE to work a schedule where you only do live events. The answer to that is rather disappointing if you're a big fan. Johnson simply does not have the time to do it because of all the business projects that he has going on at once. There is very little time in between shooting movies as well.

He and his tag team partner show up to take on two regular guys.

While the company would love for him to come back now that his marketing value as at an all time high, there have been very little discussions backstage in WWE about the potential return of Batista. A big reason for that is because he has four movies coming out there year, and he is currently busy filming two of the bigger ones as we speak. The former world heavyweight champion is also going to be busy promoting the new James Bond movie.
