Despite the obvious advantage, there weren’t many good jobs in the business for someone starting out in his 30s, with very little training to his credit. School just wasn’t very important to me.”Batista acknowledges that he stayed away from drugs and other addictions for the most part.
The former bouncer discovered that harsh fact early on when he tried out at the WCW Power Plant but was told he would never make it in the wrestling business. His drug of choice was women, and that addiction cost him his marriage, destroying a relationship that had helped him climb from poverty to the pinnacle of sports entertainment.“But I’ve pretty much worked that out of my system,” says the star of Greek and Filipino descent.
Relationship with Melina The current woman in his life is WWE diva Melina (Melina Perez).“I was heartbroken after me and my wife split up, and I started dating other girls.

That desire would evolve into a love for professional wrestling which Batista, at 6-5 and 290 pounds, had the size and look for.
Although his life has become a dream, it’s not all perfect.“I’d like to go back and correct the mistakes I’ve made, but I guess that’s all part of living your life. But I wouldn’t go back.”The best part of Batista’s job today is being a hero – someone who gives other people hope.
You’ve got one life to live, and you’ve got to go for it. In his book he recounts an experience in the Philippines where he was mobbed by thousands of fans as a car paraded him down the streets of Manila.“It was a proud moment for me. Because I represent hope, good triumphing over evil, a guy overcoming bad stuff in his past to do the right thing and be successful at it.”In other words, a lot like Dave Bautista.
That relationship was short-lived, and he started seeing Melina again.“I really fell hard for Melina.”Their friendship wasn’t exactly a secret in the WWE locker room.
