In WWE he has had a great career that has seen him increasingly protagonist. Without this Dave Bautista would probably never have been who he is now, one of the greatest actors in Hollywood. His career has taken off and we have seen him in films such as the recent Dune, Avengers: Endgame and above all Guardians of the Galaxy, the series that launched him definitively in this world.
However, the former WWE champion did not live an easy life and even immediately after his path in the company of Vince McMahon he had very complicated moments. Speaking during a recent interview with IGN Bautista, he revealed how the role of one of the protagonists of the well-known Marvel series has literally saved him from poverty.
Here are the words of him, reported in Italy by the site La Scimmia Pensa: "In order for people to truly understand how my life has changed, they must first understand where I come from and what has changed since I was in wrestling.
When I landed the role of Drax in Guardians of the Galaxy I had barely worked in the previous three years, but when I was cast it all changed. It was not a good time, my house had been foreclosed and I had nothing. I had sold everything I had achieved in wrestling and had problems with the mortgage.
I was at the fruit but this character changed me and opened the doors for me to a new life. Here I felt that my life had improved and I was much more successful and things seemed surreal to me. It hasn't been that long since I had to borrow money but Drax has changed my life."
Batista and a six-time world champion, he has won various titles and was in WWE between 2002 and 2010 and in 2014 and 2019. Now he has in fact announced that he will no longer take part in the world of wrestling.
Will Brock Lesnar fight in AEW?
In recent days, AEW, also named All Elite Wrestling, has been in the news for the latest rumors that have approached two former WWE stars such as CM Punk and even Daniel Bryan to the company of Tony Khan.
In the last few hours the rumors have increased and have also seen a rumor that would be incredible: the second most important wrestling company in the world would also be thinking of The Beast Incarnate, one of the most important stars of the WWE of the last twenty years, none other than Brock Lesnar.
Some rumors even say that the wrestler has already signed a contract. It all started when someone sent a message to colleagues from Wrestling Observer Newsletter stating that a historical and very important source in wrestling would tell them that Brock Lesnar had signed a deal with a company outside WWE.
Rumors have increased and it has been argued that this company was indeed the AEW. During the last episode of the Mat Men podcast, colleague Andrew Zarian took stock of the actual situation of The Beast. Here are his words: "I can tell you with absolute certainty that Brock Lesnar did not sign with AEW.
They may have spoken occasionally, but never anything serious. That's all I know and I can tell you what they told me. I also spoke to Dave Meltzer and he also confirmed that it is not true, Brock Lesnar has not signed with All Elite Wrestling."
Brock Lesnar has been absent from WWE rings and wrestling in general since last year when he was defeated at Wrestlemania 36. Latest rumors say that Vince McMahon's company is very interested in the wrestler's return and Zarian continued: "Brock hasn't signed with WWE yet.
I know WWE wants him and honestly if I'm WWE I think: How do you let go. one like him. I think it would be stupid and in fact the fact that WWE doesn't sink the blow for his return has made some wrestling fans think that WWE wants to sell.
Usually when someone wants to sell he has to save money as possible but I think you must also sell with the maximum of your earnings."
