Bad Bunny’s debut match on Night 1 of WrestleMania was a hit. In the climax of a feud that began way back in the Royal Rumble, Bad Bunny teamed up with Damien Priest to take on The Miz and John Morrison. In the history of celebrity matches, the WWE has a long list of bad ones rather than good ones. (See some of the best matches ranked here.) And of course, there’s always an audible groan held around the world when you see a celebrity taking the spot of an actual wrestler, especially in an event like WrestleMania. However, Bad Bunny’s debut match is the best celebrity wrestling match I’ve seen, hands down. Bad Bunny had moved to Orlando to prepare for his debut match, and it paid off. Many wrestlers were giving the Latino superstar so much praise. 

Bad Bunny’s entrance was phenomenal. He was riding in on his 18-wheeler, looking like Neo. He comes out to his song, “Booker T.” His opponents came out to a swarm of Easter Bunny, rapping their horrible little piece to ridicule the artist. 

However, once he stepped into the ring to start the match, you couldn’t expect what was about to happen. Bad Bunny wrestles, and he wrestles like a pro. He showed off some potent offense, delivering some solid right hands. He sold blows and took some severe bumps. 

At this point, I was already impressed by the skill Benito has shown here. He moved around with clear intention. The Miz was selling his offense like a pro, being shocked by Bad Bunny’s incredible skill. Bad Bunny delivers a headbutt and wobbles, selling the aftereffects of such a reckless attack. These small storytelling moments are what makes a competitor shine in the ring. Bad Bunny then pops off by delivering a crazy hurricanrana. He’s Latino, so you already know he has one of these in the pocket. 

It only got better from there as Bad Bunny showed off his ability, with a beautiful falcon arrow and, even better, a Canadian Destroyer now dubbed the Bunny Destroyer. 

We can’t forget the rest of the talent involved in this match. Damien Priest was excellent in his role as the hot tag and Benito’s partner. However, I need to give so much praise to The Miz and John Morrison. They did their best to make sure Bad Bunny looked like a million bucks. There’s a reason these two were chosen to compete against this team. They are indeed masters of the art of wrestling. Bad Bunny put in the work, and it shows he gave us the best celebrity match in WrestleMania history.
