Bad Bunny was one of the biggest headline makers at WrestleMania 37 as the Grammy award-winning rapper exceeded expectations in his professional wrestling debut.
Bad Bunny and Damian Priest picked up a massive win over The Miz and Morrison, and the Puerto Rican musician received widespread plaudits for his efforts more than a month ago. Bad Bunny trained extensively at the WWE Performance Center, and the results were all there to be seen at WrestleMania 37.
During a recent appearance on the Season 4 premiere of HBO’s The Shop: Uninterrupted, Bad Bunny said he realized pro wrestling was “100% real” during his training period. The 27-year-old artist stated that being a professional wrestling athlete was no joke as the physical risks were legitimate.
“It’s real. It’s 100% real. It’s insane. When I was learning the first day, and they were teaching me how to fall, take bumps, I said, ‘How can these people do this for 20-30 years?” Guys like Undertaker, Triple H, and so many others….receiving that pain,” said Bad Bunny.
The Undertaker reacted to Bad Bunny’s comments, and The Deadman gave his seal of approval to the popular rapper. The WWE Legend also added that everyone in the wrestling community was proud of Bad Bunny’s work at WrestleMania 37.
