Dave Bautista turns down offer to appear at Wrestlemania 32
Over the weekend at Royal Rumble, Dave Bautista was backstage at the live event to have a meeting with WWE chairman Vince McMahon. McMahon made an offer to Dave to make an appearance at this year’s Wrestlemania. While his involvement would not be in a match, whatever was pitched to him was said to have been turned down. Sources claim that two parties are still on good terms and the door was left open for creative to try pitching him other ideas.
It is worth noting that the last time Bautista returned to the WWE, it was not an entirely happy experience. He has been very vocal in numerous interviews over the creative direction of the company and how they mishandled his return. It is also worth mentioning that next month filming for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 will begin.
Whether or not Bautista appears in Dallas Wrestlemania weekend, you can rest assure that he will return as Drax the Destroyer.
