The Mortal Kombat 1 video game will soon be launched. Recently, the newly released trailer showed Dave Bautista as the star of the teaser. He played the role of a powerful librarian who introduces the new era of Mortal Kombat. 


The Warner Bros. Games channel uploaded a video that showed Bautista playing the game. First, the former WWE superstar claimed he lost his voice due to screaming “Mortal Kombat” all day. Furthermore, he revealed that he loved the game because it somehow connected to his past. “It feels like a dream come true,” stated Dave.

Speaking about his favorite character, the Animal mentioned that he liked Liu Kang. As per him, it was because he could do the bicycle kick and turn into a dragon as well. However, Dave Bautista mentioned that he liked Scorpion as he grew older. 

“It’s so realistic and lifelike, but still a video game; it’s not that realistic where it feels so real that it’s uncomfortable,” said the 54-year-old. Dave Bautista looked like he was having the time of his life while testing the gameplay of Mortal Kombat. Interestingly, his former co-worker, John Cena, will have his edition of The Peacemaker on the game as well.

Bray Wyatt’s sudden demise is still on the minds of the wrestling fraternity. As a result, many of his co-workers and friends have penned emotional notes in tribute to him. Dave Bautista sent a short yet moving message in light of his tragic passing. “This dude was special. 💔” wrote the legend. Bray was one of the most respected superstars backstage as proved by the several stories shared by his colleagues.

Despite never working with him on-screen, Bautista shared the locker room with the Eater of Worlds during the last two runs of his career. A tribute show was held last week to honor the legacy of the third-generation superstar. Moreover, former Wyatt family members Braun Strowman and Erick Rowan were present for the opening ten-bell salute. All in all, the WWE has done a tremendous job handling this sensitive matter.
