Undertaker shared a post with a quote from Bad Bunny which said,

“It’s insane! When I was learning the first day and they were teaching me how to fall, I said, ‘How can these people do this for 20-30 years… receiving that pain?'”

Taker wrote, “Well said, @sanbenito. You did us ALL proud at #WrestleMania. #DeadmanApproved.” 

Many fans still ridicule pro-wrestling as being ‘fake’ for the industry’s use of storylines. However, the physical pain and turmoil are never a part of the storyline.

The Grammy winner trained relentlessly for three months before going into WrestleMania. Bunny’s words will definitely resonate with fans, and it will help in destigmatizing the wrestling and sports entertainment industry.

Apart from The Undertaker, WWE Superstar Aleister Black also praised Bad Bunny. He revealed that Bunny trained with “Coach Smiley, Adam Pearce and Drew Gulak tirelessly.”

He also recalled Bunny’s first day at the Performance Centre.

Me and Bo Dallas were there for his first day. Came prepared, came to observe, listen and partake,” Black wrote.

“Not once gave up, not once complained. Dude is a hard worker in every aspect of his life. Completely understand why as an artist he’s so successful. No cutting corners anywhere,” he concluded.

Eventually, this feud led to the now popular WrestleMania 37 match. Bunny was so dedicated to his craft that he dropped all other works to train for the match. Unlike many other Hollywood guests, Bunny actually wanted to have a proper match.

Bunny executed a frog splash and Canadian destroyer to perfection and sold every move. After his amazing reception in WWE, Bunny took a sabbatical from WWE to focus on his music career. There is a high chance he would be back in the future.
