– As previously reported, WWE Superstar Batista signed a two-year contract with WWE. While Batista isn’t under the same type of “special deal” that a Brock Lesnar or a Rock would be under, he is going to be taking an approved hiatus due to some film promotional commitments that he is scheduled to be a part of at different times.
– Speaking of WWE contracts, it’s quite possible that “Nature Boy” Ric Flair is back under a WWE deal. Speculation pointing to this comes from the fact that Flair was in talks with an independent wrestling promoter to work some local events, but told them that he would need to get it approved by WWE.
