Bad Bunny made a splash in the wrestling world in January when he jumped off the top rope onto a pair of dazed WWE Superstars outside the ring at the 2021 Royal Rumble.It was the kind of viral moment that WWE didn’t just get up to Had to think of one but two t-shirts What some may not have noticed is that Bunny’s left foot slipped on the top rope at takeoff – which could have been disastrous and made the moment viral for another reason

These are the risks an entertainer takes in stepping into the square circle and playing pro wrestlers, there is also the possibility that they will be mocked by the masses and rejected by an inconsistent fan base who is not friendly to outsiders But the eccentric star artist was never afraid to take risks February the current 24/7 Champion of the WWE

Of course, anyone who’s followed Bad Bunny’s career knows that run with WWE went on for years. Here’s a look at how 10 times Bunny has celebrated wrestling in his career

It’s not just the hip-hop world that is fascinated by Ric Flair and his legendary drop. Bunny is also a fan of Flair and invited the cameo in his music video “Chambea” 2017: “Driving limousines, jet flying, Steal a kiss, turn a wheel and trade the son of a gun “In the clip,” El Conejo Malo “and” The Nature Boy “show their eye-catching rings and watches for the camera and play Flair’s characteristic strut on a roof between shots of scantily clad women and concert material The title belt that Bunny is holding? This is the World Heavyweight Championship, which Flair has won several times at a record height

When Bunny and coworkers El Chucheto outnumber a group of bikers in this 2019 music video, Steve Austin helps “Stone Cold” The Texas Rattlesnake heroically appears on the back of Bunny and El Chucheto’s semi-trailer and proclaims, “Nobody As soon as Austin finishes opening a can of whoop ace on the truckers, he chugs a few Steveweisers with Bunny – and gives poor Benito the ice-cold stunner just because

Given Bunny’s wrestling fandom and John Cena’s rap history, it’s surprising that Bunny didn’t get the self-proclaimed “Dr of Thuganomics “in one of his songs. The next thing we have right now is the reigning 24/7 champion of the WWE, who Cena in his 2020 song” 25/8 “” Restrained, nunca me dejo ver como John Cena “, raps Bunny, an allusion to Cena’s catchphrase “You can’t see me” Bunny – who also mentions The Boogeyman in “25/8” – has a story of well-known wrestlers: Ric Flair (“Así Soy Yo”), Eddie Guerrero (” I Like It “),” Stone Cold “Steve Austin (” Chambea “), Triple H (” Está Cabrón Ser Yo “) and The Undertaker (” Estamos Clear “,” Kemba Walker “and” Tu No Me Metes Cabra “)

It’s cool to check a name on a Bad Bunny song but you know what’s cooler? Named a Bad Bunny song after you. And Booker T is the only wrestler to have received this honor. In the eponymous “Booker T”, Bunny boasts “Soy un rey, campeon” like the former ring king and six-time world champion Beside Bunny A camouflaged Booker T also appeared in the music video – and again when Bunny performed the track at the Royal Rumble 2021

This Billboard collaboration with Cardi B and J Balvin not only helped put Bunny on the mainstream pop map site, but the name Eddie Guerrero on Radio Bunny raps “Guerrero como Eddie, que viva la raza “on the salsa trap track 2018 – a tribute to the late, great Mexican-American wrestler and his famous catchphrase. In the accompanying music video, Bunny goes one step further by imitating Guerrero’s shoulder shimmy

Bunny literally wears his wrestling fandom on his sleeve. If he’s not rocking Gucci and Louis Vutton, Bunny is at the other end of the spectrum with wrestling threads. There was the Eddie Guerrero Latino Heat T-shirt in the music video “Mia”, the NWO t-shirt he wore in Miami, the WWE logo t-shirt he wore while shopping for sneakers, and the Steve Austin “Stone Cold” jacket. He wore a concert – not to be confused with the black one “Stone Cold” tie, which he paired with a black suit at the 2018 Latin Grammys “I felt like a detail was missing that expresses my creativity,” Bunny said in an interview with Billboard about the tie. p>

Live from New York, it’s the 24/7 championship belt! Bunny performed as a musical guest on Saturday night, five days after winning the joke 24/7 championship and bringing home the gold. The 24/7 championship sat on Bunny’s lap the entire time he is the moody “Te Deseo Lo MejorWas if the title didn’t serve any real purpose during the performance? Bunny took the opportunity to demonstrate his precious possessions

There’s a reason Bunny took to the pitch at a 2020 Miami Heat game and spat water in the air: Triple H’s gritty metal theme song (played by Motorhead) played over the speakers the moment Bunny was caught and mimicked the pre-game game water spitting routine – to perfection, we might add – much to the delight of the crowd. Security wasn’t that impressed and immediately shooed Bunny back to his seat in the yard

One man stood out in the X 100pre Tour promo video announcing Bad Bunny’s third show in Puerto Rico – and not just because he was the only one who spoke English The Undertaker occurs in the 2019 video ( along with several Puerto Rican residents and celebrities) to urge Bunny to add a third concert in his homeland. “Yo, Bad Bunny, it’s the dead one,” says a stone-faced undertaker. “And I think you have to do this third show for Needless to say, if the towering ass that kicked Mick Foley 16 feet off the steel cage tells you to do something, do it

The art for Bunny’s Hector El Father sampling single “Tu No Metes Cabra (Remix)” will look familiar to even the casualest wrestling fan Bunny, Daddy Yankee, Anuel AA and Cosculluela looked like the NWO, one of the most popular Wrestling factions in history Every reggaetonero wears the famous black and white NWO t-shirt, just like the NWO originals Hulk Hogan, Kevin Nash and Scott Hall However, Nur Bunny has the World Heavyweight Championship around his waist, after all, it’s his song
