From Wikipedia ...(BTW, a great site for info like this)

Personal information
Batista is of Greek and Filipino heritage. His year of birth was disputed for several years. His website originally listed him as being born in 1969, while several contradictory news reports, as well as the IMDB, had claimed that he was actually born in 1966. In addition, Obsessed with Wrestling claimed for a time that, when Batista re-signed with WWE in January 2005, he revealed that he had been working under a fake age (a common practice in the entertainment field) and admitted that he was actually thirty-nine years old (and would therefore have been born in 1966). [2] However, this claim was later removed. In March 2006, Batista stated in an interview that he was born in 1969. [3], [4]

Batista married second wife Angie, a Filipina [5], in October 1998. Angie is a survivor of ovarian cancer. In the August 2006 edition of WWE magazine Batista (who is on the cover) revealed that he and his wife are currently separated. Batista has two daughters and a step daughter from his first marriage.

Batista has numerous tattoos, including a large Chinese dragon on his back, red Kanji lettering on his upper left biceps which says "Angel" in tribute to his wife, a signature design on his upper right biceps, and a small Sun on his stomach which encircles his belly button. He recently added a tattoo on his arm of the flags of the Philippines and Greece merged into one.

In an edition of SmackDown! magazine, he stated that he collected lunchboxes. This collection started when he bought his wife an ET lunchbox and she did not want to break it, so he bought a second one. [6]

Batista can breakdance. This was shown in a commercial promoting WWE SummerSlam 2004 where he did his take on a "floor routine" (basically mocking the floor routines shown at the Olympic Games).

Batista has torn his right triceps three times, and has had four surgeries on it (three reattachments, one to clean up due to infection).

Batista is set to be guest starring in the ninth episode of Season 6 of the American drama action/adventure, CW Network television series Smallville, playing a villain from the Phantom Zone. [7] [8]
