Is WrestleMania next for Bad Bunny?

Feb 6, 2021 - by Colin Vassallo

WWE’s association with Bad Bunny is not over and the plan is to get the 26-year-old in a wrestling match at WrestleMania 37, possibly in a tag team match.

Bunny performed his song Booker T at the Royal Rumble and then got involved during the men’s Rumble match, hitting a crossbody from the top rope to the floor on The Miz and Morrison. He also showed up the next night on Monday Night Raw as a guest of Miz TV and paired up with Damian Priest who was making his Raw debut.

“We know each other,” Priest told BT Sport in an interview. “Where he was born and raised, I was raised in the island of Puerto Rico, and it’s not a good area. We both had that struggle upbringing of trying to just make it through the day in the neighborhoods that we’re from…it’s not a forced thing. It’s not fake. I’ve been in the ring with him helping him out because he loves wrestling.”

Bad Bunny has also been spotted at the WWE Performance Center where he is getting trained for his eventual WWE in-ring debut.

2020 was a great year for Bad Bunny as his third album, El Último Tour Del Mundo, became the first all-Spanish language album to top the US Billboard 200 and he also became the first non-English language act to be Spotify’s most streamed artist of the year.

Maybe in 2021 he will also add a WrestleMania performance to his already-impressive list of accolades.

    dooman saying this isn’t wrestling…c’mon, man. Celebs appearing in wrestling has been a staple since day one across the board. Key thing is to make it someone relevant and Bad Bunny is about as relevant as you can get. For once WWE seem to have their finger on the pulse and pairing the dude with Priest and a potential tag match for Mania is about the best thing they could be doing. Gets mainstream eyes, gets the new talent spotlight, gets Mania promoted. You may not like it subjectively but objectively, it’s good business and one of the smarter things they’ve done.

    Daniel Bryan laying Bad Bunny out would be entertaining and funny as afterall Elder Fudd’s “Kill the Wabbit” song is to the tune of Ride of the Valkyries and Ride of the Valkyries is Daniel Bryan’s theme song.
