Damian Priest and Bad Bunny teamed up at WrestleMania, although that almost didn’t happen. The two did take on Miz and Morrison in front of a Raymond James Stadium crowd. That is an experience that Priest will never forget, but connecting with Bad Bunny was pretty great as well.
While speaking to Super Luchas, Damian Priest discussed how blown away he was to discover exactly how connected he is with Bad Bunny. The two eventually became quite close, even linking back up at the Latin Music Awards. The fact that Priest’s aunt was Bad Bunny’s brother’s teacher was also an insane connection neither of them expected.
“I lived part of my life in Dorado and another in Vega Baja, where Bad Bunny is from, what a coincidence. And the sister of my stepfather was the school teacher of Bad Bunny’s brother, and when I told Bad Bunny her name – which is Falú, a very strange, unusual name – Bad Bunny was moved because she was the teacher from her brother and everyone loves her. I could not believe it! My mom was the one who told me to comment on that to Bad Bunny. I thought it was a lie, but I had to ask Bad Bunny because otherwise my mother was not going to leave me alone. Hail Mary! I had to call my mom later and tell her that it was true.”
Damian Priest is currently the United States Champion and Bad Bunny is focusing on his sold-out 2022 tour. The two might link back up, especially if Bunny ever finds his way back to WWE. He showed a ton of respect for the pro wrestling business during his WrestleMania storyline, so he is more than welcome back.
