One of the heroes of Guardians of the Galaxy, Drax the Destoryer, played by Dave Bautista, is known for another profession of his. Bautista was a professional wrestler who retired back in 2014, which was when the first Guardians film came out.
Recently, at Heroes & Villains Fan Fest in Atlanta, Georgia, Bautista was asked by a fan which one in the cast of the Marvel franchise he would choose for a tag team wrestling match and he picked none other than his cast mate Michael Rooker who plays Yondu.
“Rooker. He’s basically Ric Flair, but in better shape!”
