Rey Mysterio, a WWE Hall of Famer and LWO stablemate, recently discussed Bad Bunny’s appearance on WWE SmackDown on May 5 in a SmackDown Exclusive. Bad Bunny saved Rey after the bell rang, and the LWO handed him a shirt, which he put on.
In his interview, Rey expressed his delight about his special return to Puerto Rico and the connection he has with the Puerto Rican crowd. He also mentioned how honored and privileged he felt about Bad Bunny wearing the LWO shirt and representing Latinos. Although Rey didn’t think Bad Bunny needed a boost for his match against Damian Priest, he hoped that the LWO shirt could provide some kind of superpower for Bad Bunny.
“Oh my god, incredible. Every time I’ve been to Puerto Rico, I feel like I’m at home. 2001 was my first time visiting this beautiful island, and the crowd was just incredible. I came back maybe three times after that, and now it’s been almost two and a half years since I’ve returned, but it’s like I never left. The connection we have here is solid. The fact that, not only is it solid, but what we represent in the LWO, every hard-working Latino around the world, they see that. They feel it, and they’re with us 1000%.”
“We feel privileged and honored for Bad Bunny to receive the shirt, put it on gracefully, and represent what we represent, the Latinos. It’s incredible. I don’t think Bad Bunny needed superpowers for tomorrow because he will take Damian Priest down. I know it, I’ve seen him train. He works hard and he’s dedicated. He’s been a fan since he’s a kid. But if that LWO shirt brings him some type of superpower, it would be incredible, man. The representation is to the fullest right now for all the Latinos.”
Furthermore, Rey spoke about Zelina Vega’s match with SmackDown Women’s Champion Rhea Ripley at WWE Backlash. He praised Vega’s work ethic and expressed confidence that she had the potential to become SmackDown Women’s Champion.
“I’ve seen Zelina work before. I’ve seen how she grinds. I’ve seen the dedication and the time she puts into this sport. There’s no doubt in my mind that she has the material to become SmackDown Women’s Champion. I see that happening tomorrow. I’m not a visionary like Seth [Rollins], but I do see the potential within Zelina to beat Rhea Ripley.”
Rey’s words about Bad Bunny and Zelina Vega reflect the strong connection he has with the Latino community and how proud he is to represent it in the WWE.
