“I was a poor kid.”
- USA Today recently interviewed Batista about his role of Drax in Guardians of the Galaxy. You can watch a video and read an excerpt of the interview below.
"People look at me and they have a certain perception and they slap a label on me. The guy you saw in a wrestling ring is not who I am.
It's the kind of stuff that keeps you young and turns you into a little kid. I was a poor kid. I came from nothing. We didn't have any money; a lot of times we didn't have any food, and now all of a sudden I'm a superhero in a Marvel movie? Talk about the American dream, man, I'm living it."
