Batista is a former WWE Heavyweight Champion. He is one of the most successful Hollywood action stars that is also a WWE wrestler. He probably wrestled his last match at WrestleMania 35. Batista is nearly 50 years old, and most likely he cannot recover from injuries as fast as he could when he was younger.
Batista announced his retirement from professional wrestling just after his match on Twitter. On the Lillian Garcia podcast, she spoke about his achievements and his success in Hollywood. He also mentioned his age and how grateful he is about what he has.
He states that he is very successful today! "I'm doing very well right now, it's weird to say that at 50 years old I am having the most success in my career and it's because my film career has just taken off, and more than a few people are like, what the hell are you thinking dude? Unless they have been there, I think it is hard for them to relate into why I would want to do this, but I love wrestling.
I love it, and I just don't feel like there was closure in my career and that's hard for me. I don't want to be 60 years old, 65 years old feeling that emptiness that there was no closure to my career. I really need this; personally I need this”.
