It seems like Bad Bunny’s wrestling moves inside the 30-man battle impressed Rey Mysterio; it was backstage where Mysterio acknowledged Bunny. We saw together the two, sharing a heart-touching moment. We all know that there have been very few instances where Mysterio has unmasked himself. However, after the Royal Rumble, The Master of 619 gifted the rapper the mask he was wearing during the match.

Rey Mysterio had a towel over his head. He said, looking at the camera, “Although there was a competition, but this is a gift to Bunny, man. Thank you very much!” Gifting the legendary mask is a tremendous gesture by the Mexican, as he rarely removes his mask on camera.
