Angie Bautista is the ex-wife of actor, professional wrestler, and mixed martial artist Dave Bautista. Little information is available about her family prior to her marriage to Bautista. They were married from 1998 to 2006. In September 2002, Angie’s doctors diagnosed her with ovarian cancer. Angie is a fitness enthusiast like Bautista. In the early 2000s, she started discovering new bruises on her body that she did not remember getting. Furthermore, she was regurgitating most of the food that she was eating and her energy level had fallen significantly. When she reached out to her practitioner, they initially thought it had occurred because of the change in her fitness training. However, they were proven wrong and eventually, a sonogram showed that there was a tumour in her right ovary. Since then, she has been treated with both Taxol and Carboplatin, which has empowered her to combat cancer steadily. She has gone in and out of remission several times and still has been able to maintain a positive attitude. In 2010, Bautista travelled all across the United States in order to make a video to raise money for ovarian cancer research. Released in August 2010, the video was dedicated to Angie.
Angie Bautista was born as Angie Lewis in USA. Beyond this, little to no information is available on her family and early life. Despite once being married to one of the biggest World Wrestling Entertainment stars of all time, Angie has never actively sought out the spotlight.
Angie Bautista’s former husband Dave Bautista is an American professional wrestler, actor, and mixed martial artist. He initially became famous for his career with WWE, where he wrestled under the ring name Batista. He is a four-time WWE's World Heavyweight Champion, two-time WWE Champion, three-time World Tag Team Champion, and one-time WWE Tag Team Champion. He is also the 2005 and 2014 Royal Rumble winner and has headlined WrestleMania 21 and WrestleMania XXX. He made his debut as an actor in an uncredited role in the 2006 comedy Relative Strangers. Dave Bautista has since appeared as Drax the Destroyer in the Marvel Cinematic Universe films, Mr. Hinx in the James Bond film Spectre, and Sapper Morton in Blade Runner 2049.
Dave Bautista had been married once prior to his relationship with Angie Bautista. His first wife was Glenda Fe Bautista, whom he married on March 25, 1990. They have two daughters together, Keilani (born 1990) and Athena (born 1992). Bautista and Glenda’s divorce was finalised on April 1, 1998.
Angie and Dave got married on November 16, 1998. They were married for about eight years, before divorcing in 2006. During their marriage, Angie Bautista developed an interest in vintage metal lunch boxes and started collecting them.
As is the case with many others who have undergone similar ordeals as her, Angie Bautista vividly remembers the day when she was diagnosed with ovarian cancer. In the days leading up to her diagnosis, she had started experiencing subtle symptoms that she could not ascribe to other possibilities. One of the things that she and Bautista connected on was their mutual love for fitness. At the time, she was in excellent shape. In fact, she was preparing for a bodybuilding competition. However, bruises that she did not remember receiving began to appear on her body. Her energy level had fallen drastically and she was constantly throwing up the food she was eating. She instinctively realised something was very wrong with her.
She subsequently spoke to her practitioner who came to the conclusion that the changes were the result of her fitness training and told her that it was a nutritional issue. He went on to advise her that she should alter her intake of nutritional supplements. However, her symptoms remained the same even after two and a half months. As a result, Angie Bautista decided to undergo a more extensive examination and blood work. On September 9, 2002, she was told that she had ovarian cancer.
In the ensuing years, she has been in and out of remission multiple times. Her treatment mostly consisted of the intake of two medicines, Taxol and Carboplatin. About her experience of battling cancer, Angie has stated that cancer doesn’t look like one thing. She elaborated, “People think that people with cancer look a certain way, but cancer can affect someone who appears perfectly physically fit.”
'Bautista vs. Cancer’ was a video project that was created over the course of two years predominantly by Dave Bautista and his good friend, former Head of Security for WWE, Jimmy Noonan. It was released in August 2010, in collaboration with The South of France Spa Naturals and Monday Night Mayhem wrestling to provide financial support to Ovarian Cancer Research Alliance (OCRA). Angie appeared in the video but she initially did not know that Bautista had dedicated the video to her. It was only after it was completed that she was informed.
In 2007, while Angie was in remission, her son, Oliver Bautista, was born through in-vitro fertilization. She calls him her ‘Miracle Baby’.
