The WWE is set to return to Puerto Rico, and this time, Bad Bunny will be part of the action. Bunny, a three-time Grammy-winning musician, missed the WWE's last visit to his native Puerto Rico when he was ten. However, the artist is now among the most streamed musicians globally and is set to headline WWE's return to the island.
Bad Bunny: The Unlikely Champion of Spotify and WWE
Bunny has been Spotify's most streamed artist for the past three years, amassing 18.5 billion plays in 2022 alone. He has beaten established names like Taylor Swift and Drake to clinch this coveted spot.
Bunny is not new to winning established names, as he featured in the best celebrity match in WWE history ahead of Tyson Fury, Mike Tyson, and Floyd Mayweather during his in-ring debut. Bunny teamed up with Damian Priest at WrestleMania 37 in a tag match against The Miz and John Morrison.
Priest was impressed with Bunny's performance and revealed that he wasn't surprised by his display. Priest, who will now face Bunny in a sanctioned street fight at Backlash, said Bunny's love for wrestling is evident, and he understands the history and psychology of the business.
Bunny's passion and commitment to wrestling have earned him the respect of Triple H, who admitted that Bunny's hard work and dedication proved key in making his respect. The upcoming street fight will be the first time Bunny and Priest will face each other in the ring, and Priest is under no illusions about the responsibility of returning to San Juan with the island's biggest export.
He is honored and proud to be part of this historic event and sees it as a massive opportunity for the Hispanic community, WWE, and everyone involved. The WWE's return to Puerto Rico after eighteen years will be historic, and Bunny's involvement makes it even more exciting.
His love for wrestling and impressive performance in his in-ring debut has earned him the respect of his peers and fans. The upcoming street fight will undoubtedly be a must-watch event, and it will be fascinating to see Bunny and Priest face each other in the ring after teaming up on Bunny's WWE debut.
