His recent hit album ‘YHLQMDLG’ hit the charts and remained there for quite some time, even winning him an award at the American Music Awards.

The win at the 2021 Grammy Awards isn’t the only prize Bad Bunny presently holds. He is the reigning WWE 24/7 Champion and is enjoying a pretty decent reign. With Damian Priest by his side, Bad Bunny is practically untouchable.

Winning the Best Latin Pop or Urban Album is a tremendous feat for a man who is relatively new in this field. Benito Antonio Martínez Ocasio worked as a bagger at a supermarket in Vega Baja in 2016. Within five years, he has risen to the top and is one of the best musicians of this generation.

He is now in the company of extremely famous musicians like Shakira, Ricky Martin, Enrique Iglesias, and Mark Anthony. Bad Bunny might not be an icon in a list of famous Latin pop stars, but he’s certainly on his way to achieving that goal. His performance was nothing short of incredible either.

This win at the Grammy Awards brings a ton of exposure to his work in the WWE. From topping merchandise sales to winning the 24/7 Championship, the rapper has had a sensational year, better than most active roster members.

The rapper’s WWE future

Despite his intense passion for the industry, Bad Bunny’s term in WWE must end. Despite the immense exposure he brings to the product, it is time WWE primarily focuses on building storylines for WrestleMania.

For the first time since WrestleMania 30, active WWE superstars will walk into WrestleMania with both WWE and Universal Championships. We received a well-deserved break from Brock Lesnar, Goldberg, and Triple H. Bobby Lashley and Roman Reigns are more than welcome replacements.

While Bad Bunny deserves to be on the WrestleMania show, WWE should focus on Reigns, Edge, Sasha Banks, and Bianca Belair a lot more. They can still feature bad Bunny on Raw, but the amount of screen time should be limited.

For a huge musician like him, an active WWE career wouldn’t be practical. Sooner rather than later, he’s going to exit to make his music and rake in money from there. But for as long as it lasts, the Puerto Rican is a welcome presence in the WWE.
