Former WWE Champion Batista has been telling people within WWE that he's looking to take an extended break from WWE following WrestleMania.

Those within the company expect Batista to take his leave of absence following the Extreme Rules PPV later this month.

Batista is scheduled to begin filming for the upcoming WWE Studio's film "Killing Karma" this spring and the general consensus within the locker room is that Batista will not wrestler while he is filming.

Also as noted earlier here on the website, The Great Khali will be finishing up with WWE, for now, on Friday's Smackdown. Khali told people at the tapings Tuesday that he would be taking some time off, and returning to India. As of right now, there is no timetable for him to return to the company.
