The world of entertainment isn’t privy to transitions. Many celebrities achieve success in one entertainment field and shift to another, not failing to reach great heights there either. 

One such celebrity is Dave Bautista, the pro wrestler who claimed the title of world champion six times. Known for his role as Drax The Destroyer in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Bautista is making waves in the pro wrestling world with the possibility of returning to the ring. This news emerged after Dwayne The Rock Johnson shocked fans with his return on SmackDown this past Friday. Word is, Bautista, also referred to by his ring name Batista, is willing for a WWE comeback as well.

Dave Bautista made a name for himself in the world as a top-tier athlete and one of the most prominent WWE pro wrestlers. Batista won the World Heavyweight Championship four times and the World Wrestling Entertainment Championship, all between 2002 and 2010.

He also holds the record of having the longest reign of 282 days as the World Heavyweight Champion. Being a well-established and highly acclaimed pro wrestler did not do much for Batista when he switched to acting. Hollywood is not a warm and welcoming place. But Batista persevered and succeeded as an actor for himself.

Dwayne The Rock Johnson set the golden standard for wrestlers when he reached the level of success he has as an actor. Johnson is a world-class entertainer with his careers in pro wrestling and Hollywood.

He broke the internet when he made a return to the Square Circle last Friday, sending fans into a frenzy of chaotic excitement. With Hollywood at a halt, this was a very smart move from Johnson. There are even talks of him having a fight with arguably the most popular and powerful pro wrestler, Roman Reigns.

As it seems, this power move from the Rock has had an impact on Batista. The Animal has clarified that he is open to stepping back into the ring. Fans await the moment, which will surely be nothing short of spectacular.
