MrBeast recently organized a charitable initiative that involved saving 100 rescued dogs. He also received the help of WWE legend Dave Bautista. While fans applauded the involvement of The Animal, what caught fans’ attention was the seemingly deteriorated state of the former WWE Champion. Wrestling veteran Bill Apter recently addressed the issue regarding Batista’s changed physique on WrestleBinge.


One of the participants, Mac Davis, asked others whether they had seen the recent picture of Batista. Davis suggested that it could either be a change made for an upcoming role in a movie or because of aging concerns. Apter acknowledged seeing the picture and affirmed Davis’ understanding of body transformation for a role. 

He's preparing for a role, now look Robert De Niro put on 100 pounds to play Jake LaMotta. Sometimes you gotta lose pounds to play a certain role, it's all part of the acting game.

Davis added that there’s a difference between losing weight to be in shape and getting skinny. They affirmed that Batista is in a leaner shape that might be assisting a healthy lifestyle as well as his professional goals.

For those who don’t know, Batista’s upcoming movie will be Dune: Part Two. It would be interesting to see if the physical transformation is related to the role in that movie.

Many fans turned on him after their favorite, Bryan Danielson, fka Daniel Bryan, couldn’t manage to win the Royal Rumble.

Many fans even went on to identify Batista’s return as the causal factor for Punk’s exit. The Animal’s sentiments were hurt, and he also stated that he wasn’t a fan of how Punk exited. With the unthinkable finally being done, fans are eager to see the two once again cross each other’s paths.
