— The “King of Hardcore,” Ian Rotten, celebrated his birthday over the weekend as he turned 43-years-old.
Martinez also appears in this video with Joey Styles. The description of the video reads, “A fun clip I got at the VOC Nation table at Wrestling Spectacular with Joey Styles. People often bring up when I gave him a lap dance during the fake ECW and on Saturday Joey Styles himself brought it up. I had to give him a hard time! Speaking of hard time, watch as a fan freaks out D Lo Brown and others. VOC Nation baby!”
— Former WWE Champion Dave “Batista” Bautista is currently in London, England filming scenes for his role as Drax the Destroyer in Guardians of the Galaxy, Marvel Studios’ sci-fi adventure movie being directed by James Gunn. Today on Twitter, the accomplished entertainer posted a rant encouraging people to get out of their comfort and go out and chase their dreams like he did.
He wrote, “So this is my random rant of the day before I hit the sack. Been reflecting alot cuz I’ve spent the last 10 days and nights alone. And it just seems so crazy to me that I’m in London getting ready to co star in a Marvel film! A kid from Washington DC who didn’t always have food to eat and was embarrassed to go to school because my raggedy clothes were from good will and my shoes had holes in them!! I’m not particularly talented,good looking,smart,athletic,etc.etc…But I’ve been able to entertain millions of people around the world. And i want to share some advice with anyone who wants some on how i got to do these things. And if just one person takes my advice then this novel of a tweet will be worth it. Get the fuck out of your comfort zone! Chase that dream of yours that seems unattainable and everyone else says you can’t do! Don’t half ass it! Don’t make a couple calls and wait for something to happen.Go for broke! Try out! Audition! Take classes! Get out and network! Everybody starts somewhere!Yes people will hate on you and make fun of you and take every cheap shot they can. And yes you will be rejected and laughed at! So what!! Fuck people who laugh at you cuz you’ve got the balls to sack up and pursue your dreams! Amateur wrestling,bodybuilding,pro wrestling,mma,movies, all started out for me as a daydream. And I wasn’t always successful but I never let haters or fear get in the way. I’d rather be a failure than a coward who didn’t have the heart to to pursue his dreams. Which seems to be the common factor amongst haters. So listen up people cuz I’m not preachin for my own good! You’ve only got #onelife and we’ve only got #oneworld so be a #dreamchaser and don’t take either for granted cuz tomorrow we may not have them anymore. Class dismissed. Gnite twitches!!!!!”
