Batista was scheduled to be inducted into the WWE Hall Of Fame in 2020, but his induction got postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. When the 2020 ceremony was shifted to 2021, he wasn’t available for an appearance.
Below is what Batista tweeted about it:
“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”
• On This Day In Pro Wrestling History (June 18, 1995) – WCW The Great American Bash 1995
On this day in Pro Wrestling history on June 18, 1995, Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling aired ‘WCW The Great American Bash 1995’ LIVE on PPV from the Hara Arena in Dayton, Ohio.
This was the 9th edition of WCW’s annual The Great American Bash events, although the 1986 & 1987 Great American Bash events were actually tours of several shows with the best matches making it to the VHS’, that made them being presented like 1 big event in both years, even though they weren’t.
There was no Great American Bash in 1993 & 1994, but after WCW was sold to the World Wrestling Federation in 2001, Vince McMahon brought the pay-per-view back in 2004 under the WWE banner.
Below are the results from that night:
Alex Wright defeated Brian Pillman
Arm Wrestling: Dave Sullivan defeated Diamond Dallas Page
Jim Duggan defeated Sgt. Craig Pittman by DQ
Harlem Heat defeated Dick Slater & Bunkhouse Buck
WCW World Television Championship: The Renegade defeated Arn Anderson (c)
WCW World Tag Team Championship: The Nasty Boys (c) defeated The Blue Bloods
Vacant WCW United States Heavyweight Championship: Sting defeated Meng
Ric Flair defeated Randy Savage
