Also his thoughts on Drax the Destroyer…
- Batista recently spoke about his WWE return and more. Here are the highlights…
On Transitioning From Wrestling To Acting: "I had the same bills but no money coming in. I actually took jobs that would put me next to good actors. I kind of picked up some things from people here and there."
On His Latest WWE Run: "Somewhere along the line I found my groove and it felt good. I only stayed away so long because it took me longer than I thought it would to do the things … I wanted to accomplish. But at the end of the day, I love being a professional wrestler. That live, automatic feedback is what I crave."
On Playing Drax the Destroyer: "That's the thing I love about Drax. I don't think people were really expecting him to have such an emotional range. Most people were thinking he's a one-note guy. But he's more heartbroken than anything. That's what I love about the character. He goes from rage to heartbroken over his family."
