Plenty of people have wanted to lock up with Batista in the ring. It turns out that Chris Pratt was down to get physical with Big Dave Bautista and he doesn’t even remember her.

While on the Late Show With James Corden, Pratt spoke about his time with Ambien. That can be a great sleep aide, but it also causes people to sometimes do and say things that they don’t remember. Apparently, Pratt challenged Batista to a wrestling match, but he doesn’t even remember texting his Guardians of the Galaxy costar.

“There was a moment in my life where I would take sleep aids to help me sleep, and I don’t anymore because of things like this. And I would text people, and I’m blackout, have no idea what I’m texting people, on like an Ambien.”

“It was like, ‘Dave, I want to wrestle you. I want to wrestle you—no one needs to know, but I just want to know. I think I could take you. I think I could wrestle you, bro. Like, collegiate rules—no elbows, no knees. I just want to feel the power.'”

That blackout on Ambien resulted in quite a challenge. Batista didn’t lay the smack own on Pratt, but The Parks and Recreation star said he was “mortified” after realizing what he sent Batista because “he is by far the toughest dude in all of Hollywood.”

Batista will play Drax the Destroyer once more in Guardians of the Galaxy 3, and then he is leaving the role. That will be a sad time, but Drax might live on through a different actor. They will not likely pack the same punch Batista does.

What’s your take on Ambien? Have you ever challenged someone to a wrestling match and not remembered it? Sound off in the comments!
