A struggle with shyness

Bautista has been struggling with shyness since he was young. 

He used to be bigger than the rest of the kids in those days, but he was exceptionally painfully shy. 

In an interview, he revealed that those things still happen to him. 

He shared that he didn’t come out of his shell until he started professional wrestling, but he still struggles with it somewhat as he has a bit of social anxiety. 

He added that people who grew up with him were just shocked to find out that he was a professional wrestler who used to perform in front of lots of people and was an introvert. 

Bautista’s knuckles are tattooed with the DC and MCU characters

The former WWE wrestler has tattoos on the knuckles of both hands. He shared in an interview that he wanted to get his knuckles tattooed forever, so he did that. 

When people look at the tattoo, Bautista may look like a tough guy tattoo, but it was filled with none other than Detective Comics and Marvel Cinematic Universe characters symbol. 

Bautista shared that all those tattoos were superhero symbols, like Superman, Aquaman, Guardians, Avengers, Wu-Tang Clan, and Batman. 

A life started at 30

Bautista shared in the interview on “The Kelly Clarkson Show” that he was the product of his environment. 

He said that he wanted to be alive and not be in jail. He added that he was surrounded by a lot of violence and crime. 

He snapped out of it when he was older and realized it was just kind of a dead road. 

So he really didn’t know what to do for the rest of his life until he was 30 years old.
