The latest on Batista's WWE future and why WWE did not promote his movie

Yesterday we noted that Batista's full time WWE career may be over due to the success of Guardians of the Galaxy. Once source noted to PWInsider that WWE did not promote Guardians of the Galaxy since Batista was not on WWE TV as an active performer. That sounds ridicuolus though considering that WWE would promote The Rock's movies even though The Rock was away from WWE for years.

Guardians of the Galaxy chose not to buy advertising time on WWE TV. One person in WWE speculated that Marvel didn't want the movie to come off as a "wrestler movie."

WWE is not expecting Batista back anytime soon and if he does return he'll be wrestling on a very limited basis.
