Dave Bautista (also known as Batista in WWE) reflects on how far he’s come.
Bautista said in an Instagram post that his birthday was the perfect time to look back. He stressed his gratitude for coming this far, stating that his victory at WrestleMania 21 was a moment he will never forget. I said he didn’t exist.
The post also featured a video of Bautista watching the final match against Triple H. Bautista said it all happened so quickly that he was unprepared for his first title and was pushed to the end. Bautista emphasized that this moment meant a lot to him as he was not aiming to become world champion. Instead, he just wanted to earn a living for his family.
“I can’t believe this is happening at this point. I’m here with the belt now, but with that comes a lot of responsibility: “I wasn’t prepared for what was to come. Triple H, he’s my mentor.” He groomed me as best he could so far.There were still many lessons to be learned after this, but I was thrown into rock bottom.I didn’t plan for this, so Seeing this makes me emotional.
“When I was wrestling, I was happy to have a job, and I was always thinking, ‘I’m going to lose my job every day.’ They always say, ‘Why do you want to be there if you don’t want to be a champion? I wanted to be happy with my job and earn a living to support my family. Becoming a champion was beyond my dreams. I find things almost by accident and go after them. When I find that I really like something, I put my all into it. I blindfolded myself, and that was a mistake, and it cost me a few things. But what is my life for?this is still surreal to watch [match].
Bautista hasn’t wrestled since losing to Triple H at WrestleMania 35 in 2019. He continues to find success as an actor. He recently appeared in Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery. knock on the cabin, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3When Dunes: Part 2 During 2023.
