Today, CM Punk, the former AEW World Champion, took to social media to extend birthday greetings to his good friend Batista.
Dave Bautista, known as Batista in the world of wrestling, has had a successful acting career since leaving wrestling. He recently starred in Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery and the Guardians of the Galaxy series. However, CM Punk had a dispute with members of The Elite that led to physical altercations and suspensions for those involved. His future with AEW is uncertain as he has not been seen since the incident.
Both stars left WWE at different times. CM Punk departed in January 2014 and The Animal had his final match against Triple H at WrestleMania 35. The two wrestlers have maintained a strong friendship over the past few years. They have stayed in touch and continue to support each other in their respective careers and have been spotted together at various public events, showing their strong bond.
