Since leaving the wrestling business for the first time in 2011, Dave Bautista (former the Animal Batista) has been busy starring in some of the biggest films in the world. He got his big break playing the hilarious Drax the Destroyer in Marvel’s 2014 hit “Guardian’s of the Galaxy”, and followed that up as the villainous henchman in the James Bond hit, “Spectre” The former World Heavyweight Champion has gone on to feature in many Marvel movies, such as the huge hits “Infinity War” and “End Game”.
However, this week ‘The Animal’ was asked about surviving in a zombie apocalypse, and which 5 WWE Superstars he would take with him on such an intrepid journey.
“So five right off the top of my head, I’m bringing Titus. He’s my number one guy. He’s my right-hand man” He said. Titus O’Neil has been known as a favourite among the WWE locker Room, and with his well known history with Batista, this answer was not surprising
Next, he said ” I’m bringing MVP. He’s my dude. He’s my soldier like that dude is, you know, he’s definitely coming with me ’cause he’s got everything that you need.” before adding “I’m bringing Rey Mysterio because I believe Rey can do things that a lot of human beings are unable to do.” MVP would be a wise choice, given his recent resurgence on WWE television, and his past life as a criminal might lend him a hand in fighting off any unsavoury zombies. Mysterio and Dave were known to be close in real life, as well as facing off many times in the wrestling ring,
His fourth pick was, unsurprisingly, the Deadman himself, the Undertaker. His reason for bringing the Undead, magical teleporting, lightning shooting Phenom?
“Cause Undertaker’s just a badass. I know we can depend on that dude”
His final pick is all about self preservation.
“I’m also going to bring Big Show because if we need to sacrifice someone for zombies because obviously, you know, Big Show’s the guy. They will spend like days eating that guy. So we don’t have to worry about [it]. We know we got days to move around without zombies chasing us ’cause they’re going to be busy eating Big Show.”
Let us know who your top 5 picks to join you in a zombie apocalypse.
