Released on September 7, 2018, Final Score tells the story of a former soldier Michael Knox (played by Bautista), who is forced to step up when his niece Danni (played by Peake) is taken hostage by a terrorist group Arkady, who also take control of a packed stadium. The action-thriller raked moderate reviews at the time, with Rotten Tomatoes rating 71%, but it turned out as commercially panned as a movie could get. Final Score earned a measly $776,59 against a budget of $20 million.

Bautista's film's sudden ranking comes almost a month after the actor celebrated pride season. Paying tribute to his mom Donna, who later came out as gay, Bautista wrote, "I was always proud of who my mom was because she was always proud of who she was." The former wrestler adds, "In your face, f**k you if you don't like it, unapologetically loud and proud. And her son paid attention. BE LOUD, BE PROUD, BE YOU."
The thriller may have gone under the radar at the time, but it seems the Bautista starrer is finally getting its due attention. Some viewers have compared the movie with iconic hits like Die Hard, but on a football field, and Sudden Impact; some called the film a combination of the two. Dave's ardent fans can stream the former wrestler's Army of the Dead and Army of Thieves on Netflix.
