Vince McMahon wants Dave Bautista to make an appearance at WrestleMania 32 in Texas … Pro Wrestling Sheet has learned — but we’re told it’s unlikely to happen at this point.
According to well-placed sources, Batista travelled to Orlando Sunday for the Royal Rumble and met with Vince backstage to hear the pitch — but McMahon wasn’t looking for “The Animal” to wrestle.
Our sources say Vince instead wanted him to make a one-off appearance at the annual event.
We’re told that although he initially passed on the offer, the door was left open for creative to try pitching him other ideas before the show and hopefully work something out.
Plus, “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2” starts filming next month and our sources say that may have factored into his decision as well — even though he’d love to once again be part of the WWE Universe.
