** Even moreso, in [[Film/GuardiansOfTheGalaxy a film already hailed as one of the best in the MCU]], Batista's performance as Drax the Destroyer was highlighted as one of the best parts.

*** How about the fact that he's being casted into [[Film/BladeRunner2049 the sequel]] of a CultClassic like ''Film/BladeRunner''? Can you find any other wrestler-turned-actor with ''that'' on their resume?

* When ''Film/GuardiansOfTheGalaxy'' co-star Creator/ChrisPratt challenged Batista to the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, Batista proclaimed that ice isn't a problem for wrestlers...Then the camera zoomed out to reveal him bathing in ice water, with a ''big trash bin'' of more water closeby. After the cameraman dumped it on him, he didn't flinch.

* Wrestlers making a foray into acting can have mixed results at best, but Batista is part of the Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse AND a James Bond villain. If that doesn't qualify as awesome...

Added DiffLines:

** Even better is that he knew all along that he was never going to be cheered, so he intentionally acted like as much of a prick as possible to fans until WWE actually gave up and let him be a heel.

** And instead of forcing the proverbial square peg of his Face role into the circular hole that was the disapproving WWE Universe, Batista pretty much [[FaceHeelTurn rounded on them]] and told them that they can cheer or boo him all they want, bottom line is, he's there to win championships, not popularity contests, DEAL WITH IT.
