Former WWE star Dave Bautista vented when a fan said he hoped to see him at the Smackdown 1000 show next month. Batista replied: “Surprise surprise!! I wasn’t invited! And it’s in my hometown.! Guess by now I shouldn’t be shocked anymore.”
Powell’s POV: This isn’t the first time that Bautista has openly expressed interest in doing more with WWE and yet it seems to go nowhere. His last run was disappointing, but it also occurred prior to his big Hollywood success as part of the Guardians of the Galaxy cast. I’m surprised WWE hasn’t gone above and beyond to get him back into the fold. Is his asking price too high? Are company officials living in the bubble to the point that they don’t realize how successful he’s been?
