Dave Bautista Reveals Surprising Reason Why He Became a Pro Wrestler

Actor and WWE (World Wrestling Entertainment) legend Dave Bautista was a guest on the Kelly Clarkson Show today

“Army of the Dead” star Dave Bautista shared an inspirational story, discussed the surprising reason why he became a pro wrestler (or stuck with it) and more on the Kelly Clarkson Show today.

You can watch the full interview with Kelly Clarkson above, its def worth a listen. And you can see our highlights below.

Bautista on why he got into and stuck with pro wrestling-

“My first try out with professional wrestling, I was told to get out, leave, you’ll never be a pro wrestler. I was heartbroken for a week then spiteful. So I start pursuing it out of spite, because people told me I couldn’t do it.”

On a turning point in his life that gave him positivity-

“There was a time when I was closing on 30 and I was so broke one year that I couldn’t afford to buy my children Christmas presents. So I had to go and tuck my tail between my legs and go and ask the guy I was working for at the time, one of the club promoters, if I could borrow money to buy my kids Christmas presents.”

“And I was so embarrassed and so humiliated to have to do that, I just made that conscious effort that I’ll never do this again, I’ll never be put in this position again. I needed to provide for my children, I needed to start building a life for myself and stop living week to week…I was taking the easy way out and it was leading absolutely nowhere.”

We started this calendar yeas ago with simply pro wrestling events. Then we then added some other live sports and entertainment events. The goals were to help sell live tickets for all kinds of events. Also, to help fans finds events and tickets easier. Then the virus happened and live events stopped for a while. So we had to change things up. We’ve since added many televised events, movie trailers, etc. But now live events are happening again, so we’re back to doing those. The calendar will be a bit of a mess for a while. Soon tho, it will only have actual events and mostly pro wrestling events. If this is your event and would like anything changed.
