The actor who portrayed the infamous Aquaman revealed Bautista reached out to him about a movie together and it immediately intrigued him. According to him, the duo are opposites and a combination like this will itself sell the movie!

“It sells itself, bro… Dave loves wearing Speedos. I love wearing board shorts. And both of us with our shirts off. He’ll be grumpy and I’ll be charming. I have the hair. He doesn’t have hair. We cover all the demographics”

According to Momoa, Bautista reached out to him about making a movie together, and both of them acted on it almost immediately.

Dave Bautista has played several Hollywood roles

While Bautista had a great wrestling career, he had worked in a different genre of movies. He was a part of Guardians of the Galaxy, which was a series in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

If all goes well, the WWE Universe will come to watch the above movie, and with Jason Momoa in it, it should be a rather enjoyable watch for the fans.

It’s been a while since Bautista has been a part of WWE. His last match at WWE was against Triple H at WrestleMania 35.

The Game attacked Bautista’s nose ring and ripped it out of his nose during the mega-event in a No Holds Barred match. While the overall visual was definitely unappealing, the entire WWE Universe enjoyed the segment because of the angle.

Not only was the match interesting, but the buildup for the same was rather interesting as well. The Animal returned in 2019 and demanded a match, stating that if Triple H doesn’t accept the match, he will continue to hurt his family.
