Former WWE Commentator Jim Ross made the following statement this week regarding Batista facing Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 32:
“Hey, I got an idea for you…what about Batista, the heel, coming back and taking on Brock Lesnar, the babyface, at WrestleMania in April in Dallas?”
“I could live with that main event… red hot Batista coming back and urinating all over the fans and being a big star and being very arrogant and full of himself and being a badass, believing his clippings and he wants to take on the biggest dog in the yard. I don’t dislike that match.”

BATISTA DOESN'T NEED WWE ANYMORE
When Batista returned to WWE back in 2014, it was because he needed the company and he needed to promote himself before the release of his first real big movie.
Batista won the 2014 Royal Rumble but failed to gain the reaction WWE had hoped for from the WWE Universe and, when it was announced that he would face Randy Orton in the main event of WrestleMania 30, a lot of fans were set to boycott the event.
WWE had no choice but to turn him heel and even then fans were still not impressed with his one dimensional character.
The reunion of Evolution was the highlight of his return but, after he left to continue to promote Guardians of the Galaxy and begin filming Spectre, it seems like the WWE Universe don't actually want him back.
BATISTA Vs BROCK LESNAR?
Why would WWE even put these two superstars together? Batista and Lesnar have very similar ring styles and the match itself wouldn't be a memorable one.
Lesnar is a former World Champion and would be expecting to fight for the world title at WrestleMania after the stand out year he has had. Remember he is still due a rematch for his title after his match with Seth Rollins ended thanks to interference from The Undertaker.
Batista wouldn't return after the success he has had as an actor and if he did then the WWE Universe would once again give him a hard time, like when they had "Blutista" trending on Twitter last year - it showed that the fans were paying more attention to his ring attire than his wrestling.
Batista vs Brock Lesnar wouldn't be a match that would sell tickets, it wouldn't be a feud that many people would be interested in and for a WrestleMania main event it would be a rather poor match. I think Brock Lesnar deserves better.
