Bad Bunny is a multi-talented artist who became a major star in WWE and one of the most beloved personalities in recent memory thanks to his love for pro wrestling in general. He had an incredible match at WWE Backlash last week and now it appears he was compared to Michael Jackson and Beyoncé recently.
Damian Priest and Bad Bunny faced each other in a San Juan Street Fight, that also served as the co-main event of the Backlash Premium Live Event. The Puerto Rican crowd popped for every single move and loved what Bad Bunny did. In the end, the rapper would pick up the huge win.
Before the match, Bad Bunny had a remarkable entrance as he made his way to the ring. Bringing an assortment of weapons while coming out to his own music, the crowd simply went crazy and the atmosphere was electric.
While speaking on After The Bell, Corey Graves talked about the reaction Bad Bunny got from his entrance at WWE Backlash. Graves would then compare the rapper to Michael Jackson and Beyoncé.
Bad Bunny’s entrance was one of the most incredible things that I’ve ever experienced in my life. Being in the arena and hearing 18,000-plus scream every word to his entrance music … in that moment, had that roof literally detached from Coliseo de Puerto Rico no one would’ve been surprised!
Bad Bunny is one of, if not the biggest stars in the entertainment space right now. I think this would be more similar to having someone the caliber of Micheal Jackson or Beyonce … [someone] that red hot in the entertainment world being part of WWE.”
Bad Bunny is also likely to make his WWE return at SummerSlam this year. Savio Vega also wants to manage Bad Bunny in WWE. We’ll have to see how WWE will plan Bad Bunny’s return.
