Batista is no stranger to being very open about his wrestling past, but recently the former WWE superstar took to social media to share a secret about himself from when he used to wrestle.
After revealing on Twitter that he suffered from asthma for most of his life, a fan asked Batista if he had anything to help him cope with the condition while he was wrestling. Batista said that he used to hide inhalers underneath the wrestling ring or with people who were working alongside the ring. Batista noted that colder venues were a “nightmare” for him, likely due to how much faster it would take for him to lose his breath.
I hid inhalers under the ring and with people working around the ring. I’m not kidding. The cold venues were my nightmare. https://t.co/kpAPQ9EKpz
