First his name was Batista. Then WWE fans changed it to Bootista. Now, the pro wrestler whose real name is David Bautista, is known as Bluetista. And all it took was showing up to Sunday night’s Payback pay-per-view in a pair of blue trunks and matching armbands.
The new moniker began trending almost instantly on Twitter after
