WWE.com confirmed our earlier reports from tonight. It looks as if WWE will be making a decision in the next several days as it pertains to the World title:
World Heavyweight Champion Batista injured his back at the SmackDown television taping Tuesday night in Indianapolis.
Earlier today, Batista traveled to Birmingham, Ala., to be seen by Dr. James Andrews. While meeting with Dr. Andrews, The Animal was informed that he had a decision to make concerning the treatment of the injury. He could either rehab his back, or opt for surgery. If he decides to go with the surgery, Batista could be out of action for as much as three months.
Batista plans on making his decision by the weekend.
