Batista
In another sign that he is moving closer to a full jump to Hollywood, Batista recently discussed his wishes for a retirement match. The former WWE champion would like to do another big match at Wrestlemania against Triple H, who he feels is still the best worker in the business. Management might be willing to do that at Wrestlemania 31 to capitalize on his name value being increased because of Guardians of the Galaxy.

Dolph Ziggler
WWE has announced that Dolph Ziggler will be challenging the Miz at Summerslam 2014 for the Intercontinental Championship. While his popularity remains pretty strong, this is not a push for Ziggler. Management simply needed a mid card baby face to put over Miz. A title change is not expected to take place, as the company wants to see how far this Hollywood character can go.

Batista

Rock
While doing an interview in Cleveland recently to promote his upcoming Hercules movie, the Rock was asked about a return to WWE and a potential match against his cousin Roman Reigns. The Hollywood star stated that it would not make sense right now for the match to happen because Reigns is not the top heel in the company.
