Another former champion, Rob Van Dam, had the starring role in the movie with the lead character however even the artwork has Batista – credited as Dave Bautista – with his name larger in the middle and his photo occupying most of the artwork. The movie is about Van Dam’s character Bobby being a former Navy Seal seeking revenge by killing a crooked nightclub owner who attacked his wife. Batista plays the character of Ronnie, an old friend of Bobby who joins in to help after clearing a falling-out they had years ago.
