Former WWE and current Hollywood star Dave Bautista (better known as Batista in the WWE world) has taken to social media to show off his incredible 33-year body transformation.
Batista retired from wrestling back in 2018 following a farewell match against Triple H at WrestleMania 35.
The Hall of Famer posted a selection of pictures from throughout the years, alongside a caption that read: “It’s a damn marathon, 18-51. #DreamChaser.”
The post showed Batista’s physique in 1987, 1996, 2007, 2011, 2017, 2019 and recently in 2020.
What is potentially the most impressive thing about this post is how he has managed to keep his chiselled physique throughout his whole life from the age of 18 to 51.
Inside the ring, his muscly look certainly matched his explosive style of wrestling, with ‘the Batista Bomb’ being arguably one of the most electrifying moves in WWE history.
It didn’t all happen in the ring for Batista, however, as he also had a successful Hollywood career.
Some of the most mainstream films he was apart of were Guardians of the Galaxy and two of the Avengers series.
The WWE superstar also appeared alongside Daniel Craig in blockbuster Spectre.
A lesser known Batista role was in the 2018 flop Final Score.
The film included a scene that saw West Ham’s old Upton Park stadium blown up.
Batista’s role in Hollywood and the WWE clearly involved him needing to remain in good shape, which he evidently did over the years.
In terms of his frame and overall stature, he has never changed.
Batista has remained the same imposing, muscly figure, however, the one thing that has changed over the years are his tattoos.
As seen in the first two pictures, he had zero tattoos, however, he went through a stage in the early 2000s where he started inking his body up.
The American has inked up his arms, torso and legs, drastically changing his appearance.
Even at the age of 51, the WWE Hall of Famer remains in quite astounding shape for someone of his age; an inspiration to anyone.
