Musical Guests and the WWE have always been a mixed bag, with the WWE often delivering more misses than hits. However, the WWE hits the mark for once, following an extremely popular musician that definitely brought new eyes to the product. His Royal Rumble performance is already blowing up with over 2.5 million views in only 2 days, currently beating out all other videos from the extremely popular PPV. He was booked in a segment for Raw following The Rumble with The Miz. He helped tie in Damien Priest, an upcoming NXT superstar and fellow Puerto Rican, into a potentially exciting feud against the current Money In The Bank holder and always griping Miz. Fans of the product may bemoan these Pop Culture guests and segments, but as we know, this isn’t just wrestling; it’s Sports Entertainment!

26-year-old Benito Ocasio, AKA Bad Bunny, was the most streamed artist on Spotify in 2020. Beating the likes of Drake, The Weeknd, and Taylor Swift. His latest album, El Último Tour Del Mundo, has become the first Spanish album to reach the #1 spot in the US Billboard 200. Bad Bunny has performed in the Super Bowl longside Latino superstars Jennifer Lopez  and Shakira. So what would bring such a breakout Latino star to perform at the WWE? Well, for one, it’s his love of the product.

He has been seen in attendance with Ric Flair in WrestleMania 33 and again in WrestleMania 34. He has two music videos with Ric Flair and Stone Cold, respectively. One of his latest songs off his latest album is titled “Booker T.” starring who else but Booker T.  It’s this very song he performed during the 2021’s Royal Rumble. A great performance, Fans saw Bad Bunny taking to the ropes later on performing a surprising Frog Splash off the top rope, taking out The Miz and John Morrison.  For once, you can’t say Vince McMahon is out of touch. He is actually right on the money.
