What’s the story?

Batista has taken to social media to post about his training session with Jack Swagger.

In reference to the gruelling session, Batista asserted how great it was to train with Jack Swagger; besides congratulating the latter on his new career—

In case you didn’t know…

Jack Swagger (Donald ‘Jake’ Hager Jr.) recently parted ways with the WWE and has now signed with Bellator MMA where he’s set to compete in the MMA organization’s Heavyweight Division. 

Besides, Batista, who has previously competed in MMA, constantly trains in the art of Muay Thai and MMA till date.

The heart of the matter

Batista recently engaged in his routine MMA training session, only this time including Jack Swagger. 

Apparently, ‘The Animal’ was impressed with Swagger’s skills and drive during the training session; to the extent that Batista referred to ‘Jake’ as a monster.


Furthermore, Batista congratulated Swagger on his new career; urging him to give hell to the Bellator Heavyweight Division.   

What’s next?

Batista presently pursues a career in Hollywood but is likely he will return to WWE for one last run very soon.

Meanwhile, Sportskeeda will keep fans updated on Jack Swagger aka Jake Hager’s MMA exploits in the days to come.

Author’s take

For those unaware, Batista completely transformed his physicality from that of a traditional bodybuilder to a well-rounded, balanced combatant. In fact, even at the age of 48, Batista trucks on in his pursuit of martial arts greatness.

Meanwhile, Jack Swagger, who is only 35 years of age—something that’s still relatively young in the Heavyweight Division—looks to follow in the footsteps of several other WWE Superstars such as Brock Lesnar, CM Punk and Bobby Lashley in trying his hand at the sport of Mixed Martial Arts.
