Batista Says He’s Living The American Dream, Hulk Hogan Talks Vince & HHH, WWE On NBC

USA Today has an interview with Batista talking about his role as Drax the Destroyer in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy. The article contains praise for Batista from others including six-time Oscar nominee Glenn Close. Below are a few quotes from Batista:

“People look at me and they have a certain perception and they slap a label on me. The guy you saw in a wrestling ring is not who I am.”

“It’s the kind of stuff that keeps you young and turns you into a little kid. I was a poor kid. I came from nothing. We didn’t have any money; a lot of times we didn’t have any food, and now all of a sudden I’m a superhero in a Marvel movie? Talk about the American dream, man, I’m living it.”

– As a reminder, WWE’s WrestleMania XXX special on NBC airs tonight at 7pm EST.
