With his film career growing steadily, former six-time WWE champion Batista reportedly turned down a role at Wrestlemania 32 that would have seen him join forces with several legends, according to Ryan Satin of Pro Wrestling Sheet.
After the League of Nations (Alberto Del Rio, Rusev, and Sheamus with King Barrett) defeated New Day (Big E, Kofi Kingston, and Xavier Woods) at Wrestlemania 32, Barrett grabbed a microphone and bragged about the victory. Barrett mentioned that no three-man team in history would stand a chance against "The Lads," as the group likes to refer to themselves.
Pro Wrestling Sheet's report states that WWE Chairman Vince McMahon wanted Batista involved in the segment. However, "The Animal" is busy filming the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. Also, as reported by the Inquisitr earlier this week, it was announced that Batista will be cast in The Blade Runner 2. Batista will join a cast that features Harrison Ford and Ryan Gosling.
