As we noted before, John Cena vs. Drew McIntyre is expected to take place at WrestleMania 35. Kurt Angle is expected to have a retirement match at the Show of Shows.

Speaking of Batista, the plan last year was for him to face Triple H. The status of that match depends on if Triple H will be cleared to return to in-ring action in time for WrestleMania 35.

If Batista is indeed returning for a match, one would expect him to return to WWE programming on next week’s episode of RAW, which will feature Ric Flair’s 70th birthday party and WWE is teasing that a lot of Superstars and Legends will be returning for this party.
