Greek-Filipino wrestler-turned-actor Dave Bautista a.k.a. Batista will return to his roots in 2014. On January 20, the “Guardians of the Galaxy” star will appear on WWE Raw.
Nicknamed “The Animal,” Bautista, who plays Drax in the upcoming Marvel Studios film, left the WWE in 2010 to join the MME. Hollywood came calling soon after, and the wrestler has since gone on to pursue an acting career with much success. He’s had roles in major motion pictures, including “The Scorpion King 3” and “Riddick.”
No word yet on how long Bautista’s comeback will extend with the WWE, but soon after the promo for his return was released, he took to Twitter to announce his feelings about entering the ring again, saying “I can’t wait to get to the Cheesefest in Hoakietown and punch somebody right In the f’n face! Playtime’s over children.”
