WWE Hall of Famer and current Hollywood star Dave Bautista is a sought after actor in the business, but CM Punk is also breaching into acting. Batista made a name for himself by portraying the role of Drax the Destroyer in Marvel’s Guardians Of The Galaxy film franchise. Batista always wanted a movie based on his character but it never came to fruition, which Marvel didn’t really find any need in, much to Batista’s dismay.
Former WWE Superstar CM Punk has appeared in a variety of shows and movies over the years as he is learning to hone his craft as an actor. He also previously mentioned that he wants to follow in Dave Bautista’s footsteps as an actor.
Dave Bautista noticed a tweet which highlighted CM Punk’s desire to follow in his footsteps and he proceeded to make a bold prediction regarding CM Punk’s career in Hollywood. Then Bautista predicted that CM Punk will be bigger in films than he ever was in pro wrestling, noting that he always had the talent.
“I already knew this. And the talent is obvious. He’s going to be bigger in films than he was in wrestling. Save this tweet.”
That’s definitely a lot of praise coming from Bautista and we will have to wait and see if his prediction regarding CM Punk’s acting career will come true or not in the future. If anything, we do know that Batista is not interested in a movie with The Rock and John Cena, because he already made that very clear.
