Batista steals the show in Guardians of the Galaxy

|

I’ve only had two real obsessions in my life: Professional Wrestling and Cinema.  These subjects are quite similar and in many ways not mutually exclusive.  Pro Wrestlers have always managed to find roles on the silver screen.  Roddy Piper, Jesse Ventura, Kurt Angle, Kevin Nash, Steve Austin, and of course “Hollywood” Hulk Hogan are all […] READ MORE
