Following WrestleMania 35, Dave Bautista announced on Twitter his retirement from professional wrestling.
@WWEUniverse Thank you for letting me entertain you. I love this business and whether you cheered me or jeered me, I’m grateful for being a small part of your life. I am officially retired from sports entertainment and I am grateful for every second of my amazing journey ✌?

The Guardian of the Galaxy star made the announcement after his loss to Triple H in a No Holds Barred match. Given that he has said in interviews that he only wanted one final match at WrestleMania announcement, the retirement is not a surprise.
He eventually branched out as a singles star after a run with Evolution and a feud with Triple H.
He is a six-time World Champion.
