It’s been five years since Batista wrestled a match, but this training video for his long-awaited return at WrestleMania 35 shows he’s still a force to be reckoned with.
WWE uploaded the footage to their YouTube channel to promote Batista’s upcoming Network special “WWE 24: Batista.”
In the video, a surprisingly spry looking Batista can be seen throwing punches and breaking a sweat as audio from his recent “give me what I want” promo plays.
The 50-year-old last wrestled in June of 2014 when The Shied defeated Evolution at Payback.
No air date was listed for Batista’s WWE 24 special.
