All Elite Wrestling's Chris Jericho revealed on Instagram today that he met with former WWE Champion Batista near Tampa, Florida.

You can see Jericho's Instagram post below. He wrote, "Killer hang with my bro @davebautista today! Had a great chat and some amazing @4riverssmokehouse! #AnimalAndGOAT #alphahouse #lionsden"

Batista re-posted the same photo to Instagram and wrote, "Look who dropped in to the den! Always great catching up with this rockstar @chrisjerichofozzy #dreamchaser #lionsden #alphahouse"

Jericho's meeting with Batista comes as The Animal entertains ring return offers from WWE and AEW.

As we've noted, WWE wants Batista for a match at WrestleMania 35 in April. He just met with company officials at WWE HQ in Stamford, CT last Thursday and word is that he was considering a return based on how the talks with WWE have went. AEW is also interested in signing Batista, presumably for a match at their big Double Or Nothing event in May.
