Since his WWE debut at Royal Rumble, Bad Bunny appears regularly on Monday Night RAW. Alongside NXT’s ‘Archer of Infamy’, Damien Priest, Bunny is currently feuding with Mr. Money in the Bank, The Miz, and John Morrison.

In the last episode ahead of Elimination Chamber, Bunny (with the help of Priest), pinned Akira Tozawa and became the 24/7 champion. As we reported earlier, Bunny could be an integral part of the upcoming WrestleMania 37.

WWE president Nick Khan also spoke about the possibility of bringing more stars to the square circle with the help of the rapper. This is mainly to gain the attention of the mainstream media.

As an example, after his title win, Saturday Night Live also promoted Bunny as the 24/7 Champion. This promotion led fans to wonder if we will see R-Truth on the SNL stage.

Bad Bunny performs with WWE 24/7 Championship on SNL

Probably for the fear of seeing R-Truth interrupt and pin him o SNL, Bad Bunny performed his second song of the night, ‘Te Deseo lo Mejor,’ with the title in hand.

However, R-Truth did not lurk behind the screens this time, and the champ got to keep the title for another day. Although the 24/7 title changes hands every minute, it would be great to have a superstar like Bunny on the WrestleMania stage.

“Look, he makes a lot of money being a musician,” the Miz said, per TMZ. “So, go do that. Keep on making that money because the fact is, if you come into the WWE ring, I’m gonna break your jaw and when I break your jaw, you’re gonna need a lot of money.”

Do you think we will see more of Bad Bunny and his Hollywood friends in WWE? Let us know in the comments below.
