Former WWE Champion Batista revealed on Wednesday that he won’t be a component of the upcoming WWE Hall of Fame ceremony which can happen on April 6, 2021.
Batista, who was initially introduced as an inductee within the class of the 2020 Hall of Fame, will be unable to attend the occasion resulting from earlier obligations.
He will be inducted at a later date to correctly “thank the fans and people who made my career possible.”
Batista was initially slated as half of the WWE Hall of Fame Class of 2020 alongside The Bella Twins, nWo, JBL, British Bulldog and Jushin “Thunder” Liger.
“To the @WWEUniverse Unfortunately due to previous obligations I am unable to be a part of the @WWE #HOF this year. By my request they have agreed to induct me at a future ceremony where I’ll be able to properly thank the fans and people who made my career possible [folded hands emoji] #DreamChaser,” he wrote on social media.
