To all the @wwe fans across the world that gave me the opportunity to suspend your disbelief, thank you. From the biggest part of my heart thank you for letting me entertain you. Tonight was my story book ending and I wanted to leave you with all I had to give. I’ll miss this theater of violence more than I can express in words but I am officially retiring from Sports Entertainment. I’m proud of what I’ve accomplished, I leave in great health, and without a doubt the show will go on. I had a hell of a run. Thank you for the journey ✌🏼#dreamchaser #wrestlemania35 … this amazing photo of me exiting my farewell match courtesy of @ginalevay 📸
Of course, leaving the wrestling ring doesn’t mean Bautista will be leaving the spotlight. Over the last few years, he has made a successful transition into movies, starring in the “Guardians of the Galaxy” series, and starring alongside Kumail Nanjiani in the upcoming action-comedy “Stuber”.
