Royal Rumble 2014: Batista officially enters the match

As announced on "Monday Night Raw", Batista is in the Royal Rumble match this year.

Although we're still two full weeks away from his return to WWE on the Jan. 20 episode of Monday Night Raw in Dayton, Ohio, WWE decided to announce that Batista will enter the Royal Rumble match at the pay-per-view (PPV) of the same name on Jan. 26, 2014, in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

Actually, it was rather underwhelming.

"Old School" Raw was moving right along and after a promo aired hyping "The Animal's" return, Michael Cole let us know that Batista would be one of the 30 men in the over-the-top-rope battle royal at the Consol Energy Center later this month.

I'm not sure why WWE wouldn't wait to let Batista make the announcement during his big return promo on the go-home episode of Raw, but there you have it.

So far, Batista is the only participant announced for the big match.
