But it wasn’t always that way for the 38-year-old wrestling superstar, and the climb to the top took a heavy toll on his personal life.Batista, whose real name is Dave Bautista, admittedly grew up on the wrong side of the tracks – in his case, the worst part of Washington, D.That’s not the only criticism being levied towards “The Prince of Parkour” as many people within WWE feel he comes off as if he’s performing in his matches, as opposed to fighting.
Three murders occurred in his front yard before he was 9 years old, and he would carve out his own criminal past that included a conviction on a drug charge and an assault charge that was later overturned.
His parents split when he was young, and his lesbian mother moved coast-to-coast to protect him from violence and keep the family together.
Fans moan and groan over the fact that WWE Divas do not get the respect they deserve, and they all yearn for the Divas to have more in-ring time.
Of course, these same so-called fans make their routine bathroom breaks during Divas matches and routinely say they suck.
Batista is enjoying the view from his enviable position atop the wrestling world.
