Dave Bautista has hinted he could return to wrestling for a WrestleMania showdown with Triple H.

The professional wrestler turned actor has teased he could be taking time out of his Hollywood career to head back into the ring with Triple H, a match that he's been wanting for a long time.

Appearing at Washington DC's Capital One Arena for WWE Smackdown 1000, Dave mentioned that Triple H has never actually beat him one-on-one, with the pair ending up staring at each other.

Back in May 2017, Dave spoke about how he was wanting a match with Triple H before his retirement.

He said: ''I've asked, yeah, I've asked. I've asked for what I want. I'll tell you and I've talked to [Triple H] about it and I've talked to Vince [McMahon] about it. I said I would come back and run a whole program with Triple H. That's the only thing I'm interested in doing. They're just not interested in it, you know?''

And Dave also has acting ambitions too, as he previously revealed he wants his 'Guardians of the Galaxy' character - Drax - to be given his own standalone movie.

He said: ''I really pushed and fought for the Drax standalone film but I don't think it's ever going to happen. I really wish they would because I think there's a story to be told there and I think the fans would really love to see that story, even if it's not me portraying Drax, I just think it is an interesting story to tell. It's a beautiful and heartbreaking emotional thing to know where that love for his family and that heartbreak over his family being lost and murdered, where it comes from I think.''
