Dave Bautista

Following his No Holds Barred match against Triple H last night at WrestleMania 35, Batista took to his Twitter account this morning to officially announcement his retirement from wrestling.

Thank you for letting me entertain you. I love this business and whether you cheered me or jeered me, I’m grateful for being a small part of your life. I am officially retired from sports entertainment and I am grateful for every second of my amazing journey

Patriot’s Position: Big Dave had a good in-ring career that he has been able to transition into a big movie career. He’s the first name announced for “Army of the Dead,” an upcoming zombie apocalypse heist movie from Zach Synder. Batista lost his match against Triple H last night. Congrats to Batista on his wrestling career and for getting to end it the way he wanted to.
