He elaborated, saying, “I couldn’t commit to that honestly. But based on our conversations over the years, it would likely be the WWE Hall of Fame. I was slated to join last year, but filming obligations in South Africa made it logistically impossible.”

Batista had earlier revealed in January 2023 that he was scheduled to film in South Africa for the sequel to his 2020 spy comedy film, “My Spy 2”.
