Earlier today, Batista confirmed the changes to the WWE Hall of Fame in a social media post addressed to the WWE Universe.
TO @WWEUniverse Unfortunately, due to previous commitments, I cannot be a part of @WWE #HOF this year. At my request, they agreed to inaugurate me at a future ceremony where I can duly thank the fans and people who made my career possible🙏🏼 #Dreaming after

Due to previous commitments, the former WWE Champion will not be able to attend this year’s WWE Hall of Fame ceremony and will be inaugurated at a later date to properly “thank the fans and people who made my career possible.” Batista was originally inducted into the 2020 WWE Hall of Fame alongside The Bella Twins, nWo, JBL, British Bulldog and Jushin “Thunder” Liger.
The 2021 WWE Hall of Fame induction ceremony will air on Tuesday April 6 exclusively on Peacock in the US and WWE network in other countries.
