Bad Bunny Is Going All In On Wrestling And We Ain’t Mad About It

Bad Bunny has consistently been building upon what it means to be a music icon. He’s helped bring reggaeton into the worldwide mainstream and he’s created albums that mashup reggaeton with pop and indie sounds. He’s also landed acting roles in Netflix’s Narcos: Mexico.

But last month he took his stardom to a whole other level: the center ring of a WWE match! And he’s not done yet.

It looks like Bad Bunny will be taking center stage at WrestleMania 37 in April.

Bad Bunny is doing more in WWE than just assisting Damian Priest during his matches. According to reports, Bad Bunny is drawing massive WWE merchandise sales at the moment.

Bad Bunny has been involved with Damian Priest on WWE television since his first appearance at the Royal Rumble, and there has been speculation that he will be working with WWE heading into WrestleMania.

According to a report from Fightful Select, Bad Bunny has been a ‘gigantic’ hit for WWE when it comes to their merchandise. The report stated that last week, Bad Bunny held four of the top merchandise selling spots. His t-shirt took spots one, three (women’s), and four (youth). Along with this, his pullover hoodie was at number two as well.

So it makes sense that San Benito would be looking to further his wrestling career. He has been training at WWE‘s Performance Center and is set to appear in-ring at WrestleMania 37 on either April 10th or 11th.

eWrestlingNews has the scoop that Bad Bunny will be teaming with Booker T at the show. Booker T is of course the subject of Bad Bunny’s new mega-hit track; and now the 2-time WWE Hall of Famer will apparently be entering the ring with our beloved Conejo Malo.

Original Story Published February 1, 2021:

Bad Bunny turned his childhood WWE dreams into reality when he appeared on the Royal Rumble special on Jan. 31. The Puerto Rican superstar performed his song “Booker T” and also got into it with a few of the wrestlers.

Bad Bunny performed his new single “Booker T” for the first time.

On his latest album El Último Tour Del Mundo, Bad Bunny fanboyed over WWE legend Booker T while comparing his top reign in Latin music to the wrestler’s championship reign. In the music video, which was released last month, the actual Booker T appears alongside Benito singing his praises.

Bad Bunny reunited with Booker T for his first live performance of the song “Booker T” during the Royal Rumble. “Estoy en mi peak,” he spits as Booker T stood there statuesquely like in the music video. To wrap up the performance, Booker T dropped his signature line “Can you dig it, sucka?” That’s also a part of the swaggering anthem.

Bad Bunny also got into the ring for his wrestling debut.

During his short tenure on the show, Bad Bunny also got embroiled in a rivalry with wrestlers John Morrison and Mike “The Miz” Mizanin. After Bad Bunny finished his performance, The Miz destroyed his DJ set.

Bad Bunny was not very happy about that and he came out during the middle of the Royal Rumble event when wrestlers are eliminated when they’re tossed out of the ring. When The Miz and Morrison saw Benito approaching, they were distracted and pushed out of the ring. To add insult to injury, Bad Bunny got into the ring and jumped on top of them from the top rope.

The WWE commentators were doing the most during Bad Bunny’s wrestling debut. The guys doing the commentary in English said, “I’ve heard of flying squirrels, but flying bunnies?!” The ones doing the WWE Español commentary came through with the best anecdote of the night: “¡Los conejos brican!”

Camilo’s New Album ‘Mis Manos’ is Coming Next Month

Camilo announced the release date for his next album and it’s coming sooner than you think. The Colombian singer-songwriter’s Mis Manos album will be released at the top of next month.

Camilo says this album will be a gift to fans since he can’t tour right now.

“My album Mis Manos will be in your hands on March 5,” Camilo wrote in a post on Instagram. “If everything had happened according to my plans, at this moment I would be on tour, singing face to face with all of you. But the reality is different. I hope that Mis Manos is a flag of hope and joy in these moments when we need it the most.”

Mis Manos will most likely feature Camilo’s latest hits that have gone viral on TikTok, the cumbia-influenced “Vida de Rico” and the polarizing “Ropa Cara.” The latter has gone viral thanks to the booty-shaking dance challenge that Camilo started on TikTok. The pseudo perreo song has lodged itself into people’s minds, for better or worse, thanks to the challenge. Camilo is the most followed Latin music artist on TikTok with 21.9 million followers.

Another song that will most likely make the cut is Camilo’s “Bebé,” his bachata song with Dominican artist El Alfa. The two performed it for the first time at last week’s Premio Lo Nuestro. Camilo also joined his family, his wife Evaluna Montaner, his father-in-law Ricardo Montaner, and his brothers-in-law Mau y Ricky, to sing their hit “Amén.”

Camilo is currently nominated for a Grammy Award for his last album, Por Primera Vez. He faces competition like Bad Bunny’s YHLQMDLG and Kany García’s Mesa Para Dos in the Best Latin Pop or Urban Album category.

Bad Bunny Nearly Kissed Rosalía During His ‘Saturday Night Live’ Debut

Bad Bunny Nearly Kissed Rosalía During His ‘Saturday Night Live’ Debut

Bad Bunny made his Saturday Night Live debut on Feb. 20 as a musical guest. As expected, he was joined by Spanish singer Rosalía for a steamy performance of their duet “La Noche de Anoche.”

Bad Bunny and Rosalía turned up the heat on SNL.

As we predicted, one of Bad Bunny’s two performances was for his latest El Último Tour Del Mundo hit “La Noche de Anoche” with Rosalía. Both artists stared into each other’s eyes as they performed the reggaeton bop. The crowd screamed when Rosalía sang, “Dime papi.” Benito and Rosalía took the embracing from the music video to the next level when they nearly kissed at the end of the performance. There was a lot of brushing of their cheeks that had the crowd screaming more.

Bad Bunny and Rosalía’s romance for “La Noche de Anoche” is just for on-screen purposes. Benito is in a relationship with his girlfriend Gabriela Berlingeri and Rosalía is rumored to be going out with Boricua singer Rauw Alejandro. She has uncredited backing vocals on Alejandro’s song “Dile a Él” from his Afrodisíaco album.

For his second performance, Bad Bunny opted for a ballad.

Currently Bad Bunny has the biggest hit Latin song in the world with “Dákiti” featuring Jhay Cortez. For his second performance, he opted to perform the heartbreaking ballad “Te Deseo Lo Mejor.” With that song he was able to show off the alternative rock edge to his El Último Tour Del Mundo album.

In the episode of SNL hosted by Bridgerton star Rége-Jean Page, Bad Bunny also acted in the digital skit “Loco.” He played a house plant that encouraged Ego Nwodim to “buss it down if you’re mentally ill.”

In other Bad Bunny news, he retained his 24/7 Championship belt during last night’s WWE Elimination Chamber special. He notably slapped his rival on the series, Mike “The Miz” Mizanin, in the face.

What can’t Bad Bunny do?
