Pro wrestling is a desired medium now. What a time to be alive. When I was a kid growing up in the south, you would think that everyone watched pro wrestling on TV. It’s a logical assumption; wrestling crowds in this part of the country are historically very committed to and passionate about the business. Being the stomping ground of Jim Crockett Promotions has a lot to do with it too of course.
This is like two great tastes that go great together. Wrestling fans who are fans of Dave Batista will have a chance to see him again on a movies screen in the near future.
Following a live stream at Pinewood Studios in London, Skyfall director Sam Mendes confirmed details for the 24th James Bond named Spectre. With the unveiling, Mendes confirmed that Daniel Craig will return as the icon film character JamesBond for a fourth time.

Former multi-time WWE Champion Batista may be finishing off the year of his career. He started the year with a return to the wrestling year after a four-year hiatus that saw him win the 2014 Royal Rumble match and main event Wrestlemania XXX in a triple threat match against “The Viper” Randy Orton and Daniel Bryan. Batista left WWE in June to promote his film with Marvel, Guardians...
Former Strikeforce champion Gina Carano and former WWE champion Dave Bautista (Batista) enjoy some downtime on the set of the action thriller “Bus 657″. The two combat sports (and entertainment) stars will star alongside Academy Award winner and living legend Robert DeNiro in the upcoming Fyzz Facility project. This film does not yet carry a release date. Like Batista on Facebook here.
So Batista is a hit in Hollywood. Let me say that again, just in case you weren’t listening or thought you may have misheard me; Batista is a hit in Hollywood. Blowing your mind? Yeah, me too.
“The Animal” Batista has been a busy man in Hollywood since his recent WWE run came to an end.

I can’t imagine anyone as frustrated with the WWE in 2014 as Batista. His return at another time would have been big, yet timing wasn’t on his side this past January. Batista spoke on his frustrating six-month run to Chris Jericho on a recent podcast.
Marvel Studios Guardians of the Galaxy, starring WWE’s Dave Bautista, opened to the tune of $94 million (projected) at the box office this past weekend.

Dave Batista is in the UK to promote Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy and recently spoke with Huffington Post UK. One key point is that he believes that the Shield breakup was far too soon. I firmly believe that they had plenty left in the tank with the trio of stars. Below are some highlights: Whether Sting will wrestling in the WWE I don’t know – you know, they’ve been...
It was back on June 2 when Batista “quit” the WWE after Triple H wouldn’t give him a shot at the WWE World Heavyweight Championship.

When Batista left WWE in 2010 for almost four years, he was forced out due to injury. It wasn’t particularly a goal of his to pursue other endeavors, but he did and he succeeded. Batista is slated to appear in the upcoming “Guardians of the Galaxy” film in August and has made a name for himself outside of the WWE. His peers, including “The Hardcore Legend” Mick Foley, are...
Through questionable booking, a stock market crash, fan discontent, and the unfortunate loss of JTG, WWE has provided audiences with, if nothing else, a lot of great in-ring action. Here are my personal picks for the ten best bouts so far in 2014.
It’s hard not to take it personal when 15,000 fans are booing every move you make. That is why it should be of no surprise to read Batista tell WWE.com that not only was he surprised by fan reaction to his return, but he took it personally.
A brand new Batista WWE DVD is heading your way and WrestlingDVDNews.com has posted the first official trailer.

Some of the most fun WWE pay per view events are the ones that look terrible on paper. Payback 2014 was one of those special events that exceeded expectations. Fans can argue results, but the champion-less crew delivered in front of an always hot Chicago crowd.
This week's WWE Friday Night SmackDown (still in London) opens up with Jimmy Hart in the ring, who then introduces Hulk Hogan.

The idea of Evolution is not the same as The Horsemen – a group that eat, slept and breathed the idea. When the show is over, members of Evolution go back to being just guys.
