The former wrestler, who fought in the ring as Batista, officially announced his retirement from the adventure sport in April following his defeat at the hands of Triple H at WrestleMania.

Bautista said his WWE career highlight was his last match, calling it, "the icing on the cake".

"For me, it was a storybook ending. It was as good as it gets. I got to close out my career the way I wanted to," he said.

The Hall of Fame ceremony will be held at Amalie Arena in Tampa Bay, Florida, as part of WrestleMania week on April 2, 2020.
