WWE legend-turned-actor Batista revealed that he would like to deliver a Batista Bomb to controversial US president Donald Trump.
The Animal is one of the most popular professional wrestlers of all time for many reasons and one of them is his famous Powerbomb finisher that helped him win six world titles and beat some of the all-time greats like The Undertaker, Ric Flair, John Cena and many more.
The ex-WWE Champion, who now performs in Hollywood under his real name Dave Bautista, retired from wrestling last April at WrestleMania 35 where he lost a brutal No Holds Barred Match to Triple H.
But if he ever got the chance to hit his finisher one more time to anyone he wants he would deliver it to Trump, who is also a WWE Hall of Famer.
Batista told Sports Illustrated when asked who he would like to Batista Bomb: “Donald Trump. Easy answer.”
Kumail Nanjiani, with whom Batista was promoting the upcoming comedy Stuber, was asked the same question.
But his co-star interjected and picked the same person as Nanjiani’s answer.
Trump is a big wrestling fan and is also a close friend of WWE Chairman and CEO Vince McMahon, whose wife Linda served under the current government as Administrator of the Small Business Administration.
The brash Republican has a lot of history with the wrestling giants as he hosted WrestleMania IV and V at Trump Plaza in New Jersey in 1988 and 1989 respectively.
The Donald also took part at WrestleMania 23 in the Battle of the Billionaires where he went head on with McMahon.
The former host of The Apprentice picked Bobby Lashley who defeated the wrestling supremo’s representative Umaga in a fight that featured WWE Hall of Famer Stone Cold Steve Austin as the Special Guest Referee.
After the fight The Chairman paid the agreed forfeit and had his head shaved bald by the victors as well as Austin who then took out Trump with a Stone Cold Stunner.
The businessman-turned-politician was then inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2013.
Trump became president of the United States three years later and has since divided opinion about his person.
The Republican has caused significant division in the country ever since his election as he admitted to being a nationalist, retweeted far-right group Britain First on Twitter and called some of those who marched alongside white supremacists in Charlottesville in 2017 as “very fine people.”
He also recently told four congresswomen Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Ayanna Pressley and Rashida Tlaib to “go back” from which they came.
Donald Trump. Easy answer
