David Michael Bautista (born January 18, 1969) in Arlington, Virginia) better known by his ring name Batista, is an American professional wrestler. Batista is currently working for the SmackDown! brand of World Wrestling Entertainment.

Filipino wrestling fans rejoiced as World Heavyweight Champion Batista arrived in Manila Friday.

The six-foot, five-inch and 290-pound wrestler, whose real name is Dave Michael Bautista, arrived around 11 p.m. aboard a Philippine Airlines flight 469 from Korea.

Batista, who has a Filipino father and Greek mother, proudly showed off his arm, which has a tattoo of the flags of the Philippines and Greek merged into one.

He said he is proud that the mother of his two children is a Filipina.

He also admitted being a fan of Filipino boxing icon Manny "The Pacman" Pacquiao. He offered to escort Pacquiao to the ring in his November fight against Erik "El Terrible" Morales in Las Vegas.

The good-looking wrestler reportedly requested Filipino food for breakfast.

While growing up in the United States, Batista said he endured hardships before reaching the top.

He said he came from a poor family and he was not able to finish his studies. He worked as a bouncer then got into professional bodybuilding to fulfill his dreams.

Batista defeated 10-time world champion Triple H with his devastating Batista Bomb to become the world heavyweight champion.

He and other World Wrestling Entertainment superstars will be in town for three days for the WWE SmackDown! Survivor Series Tour at Araneta Coliseum on October 21-22.
