Marvel star Batista takes dig at fellow WWE heroes The Rock and John Cena after retirement

Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson has starred in the franchise’s Furious 7, The Fate of the Furious and the latest spinoff Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw.

Cena has been announced for Fast & Furious 9, without Johnson, and Batista, who performs under his real name Dave Bautista, was urged by a fan to join the cast in the future with the other wrestling legends.

However, The Animal is not keen to be part of the Fast franchise and expressed his opinion on Twitter with the unique hashtag of “idratherdogoodfilms” in a tweet that also included a vomiting emoji.

Batista replied: “…..thank you for your consideration… #idratherdogoodfilms.”

The six-time world champion has retired from professional wrestling and his last fight took place at WrestleMania 35 last April.

The ex-WWE Champion lost to his former Evolution mentor Triple H in a No Holds Barred Match and is now focused on his Hollywood career.

The former World Heavyweight Champion rose to fame in the big screen when he landed the role of Drax The Destroyer in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy franchise.

Bautista then joined the Avengers cast on Infinity War and Endgame where he worked with some of the biggest names in the industry like Scarlett Johansson, Robert Downey Jr, Josh Brolin and many more.

Batista has also appeared in various other blockbuster hits like Blade Runner 2049, Spectre, Riddick and more.

The 50-year-old wrestler-turned-actor is following in the footsteps of The Rock who is considered as one of the biggest celebrities in Hollywood.

The 10-time world champion has worked with the likes of Christopher Walken, Jason Statham, Bruce Willis and many more throughout his impressive career.

Cena has also chosen the same path and his role in Fast & Furious 9 could be a huge break for him.

Rumours suggest that he may also join the cast of the Suicide Squad sequel.

The 16-time world champion, though, hasn’t forgotten about WWE as he recently claimed that his wrestling career is “far from over”.
