Batista parted ways with WWE in 2014, and he hasn’t returned since then because he’s been busy focusing on his acting career, which has been bringing him plenty of attention as of late.

But the former WWE Champion hasn’t been shy when it comes to talking about a potential return, and WhatCulture Wrestling recently asked him what it would take to get him back in the ring.

According to Batista, he thinks about wrestling daily and he still has love and passion for wrestling.

In regards to a possible return, he noted that the timing would have to be right, and he would have to get set up with the right opponent.

“I think, one, it would have to be the right time, and two, it would have to be the right opponent. That’s pretty much it, and it would have to make sense,” Batista said. “Yeah, I think the last time I went back was with really good intentions and I felt like I wasn’t delivered what I was promised and that was just creatively. So, that would be it, I’d have to have a strong say of what I did and who I worked with. It would have to make sense as far as time, not only do I have to be free, but I also have to factor in there is a risk that I would be injured. If I got injured I would need some time to rehabilitate myself, so I always kind of factor those things in.”
