Of course, he is known for more than just wrestling where he goes by the name Batista. His role as Dax in Guardians of the Galaxy was more than a comic relief. By playing him so well he became an actual role model for a boy with autism. He was also the menacing henchmen in 2015’s Spectre, the latest James Bond film.
He will be doing a panel with fellow Guardians of the Galaxy stars Micheal Rooker and Sean Gunn.
Again, Mrs. Nola Nerd Couple was so happy Bautista is coming to New Orleans that she bought the VIP within minutes of the announcement. The VIP comes with a 3-day weekend admission, a tote badge, early entry on Saturday and Sunday, and a Speed pass for his autograph and photo-op. Of course, she gets an autograph and a photo-op. She has graciously allowed me to appear in the photo. Of course, if there is someone else you would like to get a VIP for, then click here to see what is offered.
In addition to Batista, Wizard World New Orleans has also announced WWE Superstar Finn Balor will be attending as well. Other new guests that have been announced are Steven Yeun from The Walking Dead, Nestor Carbonell (The Dark Night, Lost), and Lou Ferrigno (The Incredible Hulk). A few new artists has been added as well. Ty Templeton, an Eisner Award Winner, will be there as will Billy Martin and Steve Geiger.
Wizard World New Orleans will be held January 6-8, 2017 at the New Orleans Ernest N. Morial Convention Center.
