WWE Return Will Have to Wait as Dave Bautista Lands Lead in Action Comedy ‘Stuber’

Guardians of the Galaxy star Dave Bautista has recently intimated that he would be interested in a full-time return to the WWE wrestling ring, provided WWE lets him face off against Triple H, but it looks like those comeback aspirations may have to wait. Bautista isn’t done movie-starring yet, as a new report from Deadline says Bautista has been attached to a Fox action comedy called Stuber.

In Stuber, Bautista plays a detective who commandeers an Uber vehicle with a driver named Stu, in a concept at least on par with other superstar wrestler roles like Hulk Hogan in Suburban Commando or The Rock in The Tooth Fairy. Hilarity ensues, of course.

Bautista’s star, it seems, continues to rise, and as we’ve seen with the aforementioned Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, that makes time available for a WWE run severely limited. Bautista will next appear in Avengers: Infinity War, in theaters next May.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
