During an interview, Craig revealed that he accidentally broke Bautista’s nose, and ran away from the former WWE Superstar. Seeing Bautista’s imposing size, it was an excellent decision from Craig’s end!

Of course, Bautista needed immediate medical help, and after getting cleaned up, he took a selfie. As a response to Daniel Craig’s confession, the former WWE Superstar dug up the selfie from his album and posted it on his social media.

Additionally, the former WWE Superstar revealed Craig did not actually run away. In fact, the James Bond actor started panicking, but the duo continued filming after they cleaned him up.

Undoubtedly, Bautista recovered well and there’s no bad blood between the actors because of this unfortunate incident.

Dave Bautista stepped in to save a puppy

The former WWE Superstar not only lets it be when someone breaks his nose (accidentally, of course), but also has a soft spot in his heart for animals.

Recently, he took to social media to express his frustration over a puppy being abused and left behind to feed on garbage. He reached out to the shelter, taking care of the puppy, and offered a hefty cash reward to find the individual responsible for her state.

Unfortunately, it became a cold case as no one was charged, but Bautista was determined to help the puppy further. Hence, he adopted the puppy and changed her name from Sage to Penny. Since then, he has given his followers regular updates about the puppy and her positive recovery progress.

Coming to the WWE side of things, it’s unclear if Batista will ever return to the ring. The last time he was in WWE as Superstar Batista, he was working a feud with Triple H. The duo had a No Holds Barred match at WrestleMania 35. The Game secured the victory, giving Batista the send-off he deserved from his legendary WWE career.
