— While at Raw this week, Batista was telling people that his physical rehabilitation is going well, according to PWInsider.com. The Animal had surgery last month to repair a torn tendon in his arm and he’s on schedule to get back in the gym in about 4-6 weeks. Batista is hoping to return by November’s Survivor Series Pay-Per-View, which takes place from his hometown of Washington D.C. As reported earlier this week, he’s keeping busy during his time off – as he’s set to star in a new “martial arts comedy” film with boxing champion and fellow Filipino national hero, Manny Pacquaio.
