“There’s always opportunities to do one-offs or the big-tier, especially with somebody that loves what we do, like it’s that with Bad Bunny. What they don’t know is that he’s been in the Performance Center for the last 3 to 4 months training every day. He wanted to do this. He moved himself to Orlando. He’s been there every day working; I mean hard.”

Not only did he praise Bad Bunny’s effort, but also revealed what he feels towards the Latin Superstar.

“He has earned my respect on every level. I am respectful of what he does, but he’s won my respect for what we do. It takes a lot to go through what we do, but nobody wants to do it.” H/t SKWrestling  

LOS ANGELES – MARCH 14: Bad Bunny accepts the award for Best Latin Pop or Urban Album at THE 63rd ANNUAL GRAMMY® AWARDS, broadcast live from the STAPLES Center in Los Angeles, Sunday, March 14, 2021 (8:00-11:30 PM, live ET/5:00-8:30 PM, live PT) on the CBS Television Network and Paramount+.

Bad Bunny’s appearance at WWE has been entertaining so far. His feud with The Miz and John Morrison, teaming up with Damien Priest, and securing a spot on the WrestleMania match card is evidence of WWE’s faith in him.

Triple H refused to participate at WrestleMania 37

The company tried to book Triple H for a match for WrestleMania 37, but he refused to participate. He doesn’t want to overburden himself with matches considering the responsibilities he already has to endure.

Furthermore, Hunter understands the difficulties a Superstar has to work through in order to prepare for a WrestleMania match. At this point, he’s not sure if his body can support the intense training.

“I’ve said this before, but getting ready for WrestleMania is a different thing, and the older you get, the harder it gets. Doing this once a year or once every couple of years, especially now, is not an easy task. You try to stay in the best shape you can, but that’s not ‘WrestleMania shape’ and it’s a different thing.” H/t WhatCulture.

It would have been absolutely grand to watch Triple H in action at The Grandest Stage of All. However, it’s understandable that he’s trying to focus on his responsibilities backstage rather than preparing for a match.
