WWE superstar turned Hollywood actor Dave Bautista is the first special guest to be announced for the next MCM London Comic Con, with the wrestling legend set to attend the Friday and Saturday of October’s show.
Wrestling under the ring name of ‘Batista’, Washington DC native Dave Bautista was one of the WWE’s top stars between 2002 and 2010, winning the World Heavyweight Championship four times, the World Tag Team Championship three times and the WWE Championship twice. Famed for his ‘Batista Bomb’ finishing move, Batista returned to the squared circle for a short stint in 2014, triumphing at that year’s Royal Rumble.
Dave Bautista has followed up his wrestling career with a series of movie roles – most notably as Drax the Destroyer in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, its 2017 sequel and recent release Avengers: Infinity War. Bautista also appeared in the Academy Award-winning Blade Runner 2049, James Bond blockbuster Spectre and 2013 sci-fi film Riddick.
MCM London takes place on 26-28 October 2018. Tickets go on sale here from 12pm on Friday 22 June.
