While many know Dave Bautista as one of the stars of the upcoming “Guardians of the Galaxy,” he was a WWE superstar by the name of Batista before any of that, and will be once again. Batista is returning to WWE Monday (Jan. 20) and has already been confirmed as appearing in the “Royal Rumble.”
Batista turns 45 years old Saturday (Jan. 18) and Zap2it is partying with some of the very best matches from throughout his career. Given Batista’s previous work, there’s no doubt he’ll be adding some great moments to this list over the next few months.

Chris E. Hayner is equal parts nerd, crazy person and coffee. He watches too much TV, knows more about pro wrestling than you do and remembers every single show from the TGIF lineup. You may have seen him as a pro-shark protester in "Sharknado 3." His eventual memoir will be called "You're Wrong, Here's Why..." TV words to live by: "I'm a firm believer that sometimes it's right to do the wrong thing."
