• Batista Comments On His WWE Hall Of Fame Induction Being Postponed
The WWE Hall Of Fame 2021 ceremony will air on April 6th. Inductees from Class Of 2020 and Class Of 2021 will get inducted this year (since last year’s ceremony was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic).
In late 2019, Batista was announced as the headliner for the WWE Hall Of Fame Class Of 2020, but it looks like he won’t be getting inducted this year.
WWE has pulled the article of Batista’s WWE Hall Of Fame induction from their website.
When a user tries to visit that page, they get the following message:
“You are not authorized to access this page.”
He’s no longer mentioned in the WWE Hall Of Fame 2020 & 2021 preview on their website either:
Batista has now confirmed that he won’t be getting inducted this year and explained why.
Here’s what he tweeted:
“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 #DreamChaser”
