Dave Bautista is one of the biggest breakouts coming out of the ruthless aggression era. Having no wrestling experience at the age of 30 is only picked up in the business because of body and athleticism, having a hard time throughout his career due to injuries, and still to this day whenever “I walk Alone” hits on the PA system we still get some of the biggest pops from the crowd as they know that at that time The Animal has arrived.
Being part of only one wrestling company and being a regular in the main event scene is n accomplishment. Since 2002, Batista is the name that first came out of the first OVW developmental class of students who became stars which included John Cena, Brock Lesnar, and Randy Orton, and next, he became one of the poster boys of WWE’s Ruthless Aggression era. 2005-2006 Batista is still in people’s minds when he used to come out when “I Walk Alone” and he posed with the machine gun pyro and World Heavyweight Championship was on his shoulders.
