A fan recently retweeted a message from WWE superstar John Cena, in which he indicated interest in collaborating on a film alongside fellow WWE legend The Rock, as well as suggesting that Dave Batista be added to the mix. Batista responded by telling the fan that he isn’t interested. “Nah, I’m good!!” said Dave Batista.
Batista also took a jab at The Rock and John Cena in 2019, saying that The Rock isn’t a good actor and that he wants better roles than The Rock has. Batista also stated that he wants to work with Academy Award winners, noting that he should not be compared to The Rock or John Cena because they are wrestlers who became movie stars, but he is a wrestler who is now an actor.
“Would I consider him a great actor? F— no.” “I want good roles. I don’t care about Fast and Furious or Bumblebee. That’s not the kind of stardom I want. I want to be in Dune. I want to work with Denis Villeneuve, Sam Mendes and Jodie Foster. I want to work with Academy Award winners. I’m proud to be a character actor. I want that respect and credibility and education.”
“Do not compare me to The Rock or John Cena. Those guys are wrestlers who became movie stars. I’m … something else. I was a wrestler. Now, I’m an actor.”Batista
