Former WWE Superstar Dave Bautista is on the cover of today's issue of USA Today for his role as Drax The Destroyer in the new "Guardians of the Galaxy" Marvel Studios film. WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley congratulated Batista, saying:
"Very happy to see @DaveBautista on the cover of @USAToday. I admire people, who - sink or swim - take the plunge into new waters."
At last week's San Diego Comic Con event, Marvel Studios hosted a surprise panel for the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy movie and Dave Bautista was in attendance.
During the panel, he said, “I’m still to the point where I go to set every day and I can’t believe I got this job.” He also revealed that he fought incredibly hard for the role and broke down crying when he landed it.
Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige told the audience that Bautista is gonna “freak people out” when they see him in the movie.
