Dave Bautista is a sought-after talent in the entertainment world, having made a name for himself as Drax the Destroyer in the popular Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy film series. The former WWE wrestler is not only an accomplished actor, but a smart businessman as well. Now it appears he expanded his business with a new whiskey venture.

Before landing the role of Drax in Marvel’s Guardians Of The Galaxy, Bautista revealed he was struggling financially due to tax issues. But his portrayal of Drax launched his career, leading to prominent roles in Blade Runner 2049, Dune and more.

According to Whiskey Raiders, the former WWE Superstar has joined the ownership team of Devils River Whiskey, an award-winning whiskey brand. Devils River Whiskey co-founder and CEO Mike Cameron also released a statement on the matter. Batista would also comment on his new business venture.

“We are thrilled to have someone of Dave’s caliber as an investor and partner.’ Dave’s involvement in our brand is a major step towards Devils River Whiskey leading the diversification of bourbon culture and elevating Texas whiskey.


I’m extremely honored to join the Devils River family,” Bautista said. “I was blown away by their products and the love and pride that goes into making them. I couldn’t be more excited to contribute to the growth of the company.”

Batista is constantly evolving as an actor as well as a businessman, which is why it isn’t surprising he continues to expand his business empire whenever possible. We’ll have to see whether this will become a successful endeavor for The Animal.
