WWE legend Batista was recently witnessed sporting a bearded look in his recent Instagram posts. The WWE veteran recently shared another picture on St. Patrick’s Day on his Instagram and Twitter handles. As seen below, the former WWE Champion looks quite different in this new picture and almost unrecognizable.
Batista is currently focussing on his acting career. He recently talked about ending his career. The former world champion wrapped up his in-ring career at WrestleMania 35 when he lost to Triple H in a match that received more appreciation over time.
It was a classic against his longtime faction member and rival, and the only opponent that The Animal wanted to face to end his career in professional wrestling. Batista was slated to be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame Class of 2023. However, that might not be the case.
According to PW Insider, Batista may not be inducted into the Hall of Fame Class of 2023 due to his Hollywood commitments. The report noted that Batista will still be filming his latest project “My Spy” in South Africa during WrestleMania week. For those wondering, this year’s Hall of Fame ceremony will take place on March 31, 2023.
‘The Animal’ had hoped that he would get inducted into the prestigious institution. That said, his busy filming schedule, as well has numerous side projects, are continuing to prevent him from receiving the grand honor.
