Dave Bautista, Who Previously Rejected a Dwayne Johnson Team Up Discards Comparisons With the Black Adam Actor, “…never wanted to be the next Rock”

Hollywood and WWE go back a long way. When it comes to having an ensemble of well-built and good-looking individuals, WWE is at the top of the charts. While most of the wrestlers stick to wrestling, a handful of them have also tried their luck at acting. Over the years, we have witnessed some very popular wrestlers turned actors in Hollywood. And one of them is Dave Bautista.

The list of Hollywood’s iconic action stars is incomplete without Dave Bautista. Even though Bautista is a renowned actor, many of us first came to know of him through WWE. And joining him on the list of WWE stars turned actors is the highest-paid actor in the world, Dwayne Johnson. Johnson is among the top actors in Hollywood, and many individuals look up to him. However, Bautista was not happy on being compared to the Jumanji star.

Dave Bautista distances himself from the Dwayne Johnson comparison

As we all know, Dwayne Johnson was one of the first WWE wrestlers who became incredibly successful and popular in Hollywood. And naturally, people started comparing other wrestler turned actors such as Dave Bautista to Johnson. While the two also share a similar physical structure, it seems like Bautista is adamant that he does not want to be compared to the Rock.

Recently, in an interview with GQ, Bautista revealed how he always wanted to focus on being a better actor in his own right. Furthermore, the Spectre actor continued, “I never wanted to be the next Rock. I just want to be a good f*cking actor. A respected actor.” However, this is not the first time Bautista has given his take on the comparison between different WWE stars turned actors.

Previously, the My Spy actor even dismissed a fan’s request to see him in a project with Johnson and John Cena. Responding to the fan’s suggestion of seeing the trio in a film, Bautista responded, “Nah I’m good!!.”
