Batista was reportedly telling those who asked him at this past week’s Monday Night Raw taping in San Jose that he was on schedule with his recovery from tendon tear surgery and was told he would be able to start working out in around four to six weeks. The tentative idea at this point is for Batista to make a return to the ring at Survivor Series in November (which takes place in his hometown of Washington, D.C.), although there was talk of keeping him out as late as January. Batista was said to be down about missing WWE’s upcoming tour of the Philippines next week since he is part Filipino.
