Batista has rejected the rumours that he could be about to sign with AEW. The story initially emerged after Big Show had hinted that a new mystery signing was on the cards.

Batista Denies Rumours That He Is Coming Out Of Retirement To Join AEW

During an appearance on AEW Dynamite, Big Show revealed that there would be a massive surprise for the fans. He said: “I have the biggest scoop ever! This Sunday at [Revolution], A.E.W. is going to hire – put in contract – a Hall of Fame worthy talent that is a huge surprise and a huge asset to A.E.W.”

In response to this rumour, Batista dismissed the idea and reiterated once again that he would not be coming out of retirement. He tweeted: “They’re going to have to come up with another word that’s used specifically for professional wrestlers who actually mean it when they say they’re retired. Currently, the word “retired” has zero credibility by professional wrestling standards.”

The star has been retired since 2019 and has forged a career in his own right. He has appeared in movies such as Suicide Squad and Thor: Love and Thunder, as well as making a cameo in the hit TV series Smallville based on the early life of Clark Kent. In addition, he has a spouse and some children to keep him busy.

At the time of his retirement, he wrote: “From the biggest part of my heart, thank you for letting me entertain you. Tonight was my storybook ending, and I wanted to leave you with all I had to give. I’ll miss this theatre of violence more than I can express in words, but I am officially retiring from Sports Entertainment.

“I’m proud of what I’ve accomplished, I leave in great health, and without a doubt, the show will go on. I had a hell of a run. Thank you for the journey.” So is there even a slight possibility of Batista coming out of retirement? Well, highly unlikely given that he has achieved what he wanted to do in the sport. He only really wanted to go to war with Triple H.

Added to that, he was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame last year, which cemented his legacy as an all-time great. Let us know what you think in the comment section down below.
