Dave Bautista looks completely unrecognizable in throwback photo from 1990s

There’s some people who are immediately recognizable whether it be due to their height, tattoos, crazy-colored hair or sense of fashion.

Dave Bautista is one of those people. But before he joined Hollywood, the actor lived another life as a WWE legend.

Check out a throwback photo Bautista shared from the 1990s to see how much has changed.

Last summer, the wrestler-turned-actor shared an undated photo, though it appears to have been taken during his wrestling career, with fans, and very few could believe it was him.

“Never knew I needed to see this picture until now.”

“Look at all that hair!”

Not only did Bautista have hair, but he had long black hair that fell just below his shoulders. And if fans weren’t already surprised by his hairstyle, they were shocked at the size of his arms and lack of tattoos.

“What? Who is that?!”

“Wow! You’re unrecognizable except for all that crazy muscle.”

Just in case you need a refresher, here’s what Bautista currently looks like.

A stark difference from his wrestling days.

Wow. Personally I like his long hair, but that’s not up to me to decide how he wears his hair. I think it’d be awesome if he brought it back!
