• Batista Explains Why He’s Planning To Leave Guardians Of The Galaxy Movie Series

WWE Legend Batista was recently appeared on The Ellen Show, where he revealed that it’s getting harder for him to go shirtless in his new movies due to his age.

Batista has moved on from professional wrestling after retiring at WrestleMania 35, a retirement that he confirmed was his final decision, and he has since become a regular actor in Hollywood.

His biggest success so far would be portraying the role of Drax in several Marvel ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ movies.

He also revealed during the interview that he’s planning to leave the above stated movie series as James Gunn (Director of the movie) is planning to retire.

Here’s what ‘The Animal’ had to say:

“It’s weird because when I said it, I said it recently because I’ve been doing interviews and talking a lot about guardians and I didn’t think it was going to be news because I figured everybody assumed that this is how it works.

We work in trilogies and James Gunn has already announced that it’s his last film, and when James is done I’m done, and I’m also going to be 54 years old by the time Guardians 3 comes out and just like the shirtless thing is getting harder and harder for me.

The journey has come full circle and I’m ready to just kind of step aside and wrap it up.”
