TMZ Sports, getting to the important issues of the day as always (not that I have any room to talk as a pro wrestling blogger), caught up with Dave Bautista in line at the airport and asked his thoughts on the news fellow WWE Superstar and Hollywood actor Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson won’t rule out running for President of the United States in 2020.
As you can see in the video above, The Animal’s on-board, largely because he isn’t a fan of Donald Trump, the other WWE-connected candidate who just won the White House earlier this month:
I’d vote for him. I think he’s a better candidate than f***ing Trump.
I think if Trump can win, anybody can probably win. The Rock could definitely win.
Asked why he’d support Johnson, Bautista pointed to some basic credentials he thinks Rocky possesses:
He’s just a decent person... decent human being. Good leader, smart.
There you have it. Rock gets a thumbs up from Batista; President-elect Trump gets the thumbs down.
And it doesn’t look like talk of American politics is leaving the world of WWE any time soon.
