The two-time WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair recently talked about his experience of being on the road with former WWE star Batista during their days in Evolution.
Ric Flair opens up on Batista
Batista has gained some more popularity in his acting career. He has worked in several acclaimed and big-budget movies in Hollywood. Before his acting career took off, Batista was a top talent in the world of professional wrestling.
In January 2003, Batista, Randy Orton, Ric Flair, and Triple H united to form one of the most dominant stables called Evolution. The stable terrorized superstars on RAW for years before Randy and Dave left the group. On a recent edition of the To Be The Man podcast, the two-time Hall of Famer spoke about how he spent his time with the stable members on the road:
“Well, Hunter didn’t go out. Randy kind of strayed away because we were living pretty large. The best times I had was taking Dave Bautista to these country bars in these small towns and having Dave take off his shirt. The girls like Dave. Hunter spent more money on food than I spent on booze. You eat six New York Strips a day at thirty bucks apiece, that adds up.”
The former WWE Champion Batista has had a legendary career in the company and has been a dominating performer inside the ring. The 53-year-old, who retired at WrestleMania 35 in 2019, is a six-time world champion and a two-time Royal Rumble winner. ‘The Animal’ is set to reprise his role of Drax “The Destroyer” in “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3”. He had previously indicated that this third film in the series is likely the last for his character. The writer and director James Gunn revealed on social media that the movie has wrapped up the filming portion of the production.
