Puerto Rican rapper Bad Bunny who also works as a part time wrestler recently wrestled a huge match against former WWE United States Champion Damian Priest in a Street Fight. It was one of his best performances in a wrestling ring and he received massive praise for this amazing performance.
But the wrestling world needed to thank the man behind training Bad Bunny as well, and it was none other than former WWE Cruiserweight Champion Brain Kendrick who is responsible for training some of the biggest stars of today’s generation.
Brian Kendrick who is a former WWE Tag Team Champion recently revealed that Bunny brought him back so that he could train him before his big match. Speaking with UnSKripted Podcast, Brian Kendrick thanked Bunny for him bringing him back to WWE. Here is what the retired professional wrestler had to say;
“So the way I got involved was when he had his tag match at WrestleMania Tampa. When he was doing the Grammys out in LA, I had access to a ring. He wanted to continue to train, he’d already been training in Orlando with Drew Gulak, Adam Pearce and I know there were some Luchadors that helped him out as well.
“I just met him when he came out for the Grammys and we clicked. At least what I thought the training should be, I think he liked what I thought the training should be. And that was it. That’s how I got brought back. I think it was through his and Damian Priest’s insistence because we had a nice working relationship.”
Bad Bunny teamed up with Damian Priest for his proper wrestling debut at WrestleMania 37 to take on the legendary Tag Team of The Miz and John Morrison. He received high praise on his wrestling debut and the fans were really thrilled when he returned to the in ring action again this year at Backlash PLE.
Bunny was scheduled to be the host of the event at first but WWE dropped the idea as they came up with a better idea for the World famous rapper. He wrestled his former Tag Team partner in a Street Fight at the event and it turned out to be one of the fun match of the event. We hope to see him in action more often.
