Long before he became a WWE champion, an action star, and a Hollywood leading man, Dave Bautista’s rise to fame started in the gym, where he lived the transformative life of a serious bodybuilder. When he learned he was selected as the Honorary Ambassador of the 2023 Olympia Weekend, the fitness industry’s most celebrated event, Bautista said, “Bodybuilding changed the direction of my life.”

Following his breakout role in Guardians of the Galaxy, Bautista has become one of Hollywood’s hottest properties, a multi-genre talent, working with the biggest stars in the world.

Olympia President Dan Solomon adds, “Dave is the embodiment of what bodybuilding is all about. He’s used the gym to build the habits needed to achieve remarkable success in everything he does. Dave is the real deal. His authenticity is why we selected him. He has inspired millions and we’re proud to welcome him to this year’s Olympia as our honored guest.”

Olympia Weekend takes place Nov 3-4 in Orlando, FL at the Orange County Convention Center. For event info and expo passes visit MrOlympia.com
