WWE Icon Dave Bautista Promoted To BJJ Brown Belt: “Let’s Finish What We Started”

Dave Bautista is a professional wrestling icon, who has made a legendary name for himself in the WWE.
However, not many WWE fans know that he’s been training Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu for a long time…

And now he’s been promoted to the rank of a BJJ brown belt!

Bautista was full of emotion when he shared the news on Instagram:

Very proud to be posting this.
I started training BJJ with Cesar Gracie in 2010 and even though I got my ass handed to me by everyone at the academy, I immediately fell in love.

It’s a puzzle I’ll never solve and if you know me, you know I get obsessed with things I can’t figure out.

His work schedule was extremely demanding and he didn’t train much from 2014 to 2021.
And yet, he persevered and got the prize in the end:

It’s been a challenging process with my work schedule, in fact I barely trained from 2014 when I got my purple belt to 2021.

Last fall I dedicated myself to progressing and this week it finally happened.

Bautista finished with an empowering message to everyone who trains:

Good days and bad days, there’s only truth on the mat. You’re exposed one way or another.
f you know what I mean then you know what I fucking mean.

Respect to everyone willing to put it all out there. Let’s finish what we started.
