Dave Bautista Retires From Professional Wrestling
In the world of entertainment, Dave Bautista has done it all. He's been a Bond henchman. He's guarded the galaxy. He's co-starred alongside Sylvester Stallone. He's literally done it all. But, one thing he'll never do again is wrestle.
Last night, after competing in a grueling "No Disqualification Match" against Triple H at WrestleMania 35, the Animal announced his retirement from the world of professional wrestling and sports entertainment.
Bautista took to Facebook to talk about his career and retirement:
To all the @wwe fans across the world that gave me the opportunity to suspend your disbelief, thank you. From the biggest part of my heart thank you for letting me entertain you. Tonight was my story book ending and I wanted to leave you with all I had to give. I’ll miss this theater of violence more than I can express in words but I am officially retiring from Sports Entertainment. I’m proud of what I’ve accomplished, I leave in great health, and without a doubt the show will go on. I had a hell of a run. Thank you for the journey
Now, if you're a Bautista fan, never fear. He's still got plenty left to give. He'll soon be reprising his role as Drax the Destroyer in the Guardians of the Galaxy film franchise. He also has several other films on the horizon including "Stuber" and "My Spy".
