A few months ago Bad Bunny started appearing on WWE programming, and he’s been a regular ever since. The former WWE 24/7 Champion teamed up with Damian Priest to defeat The Miz and John Morrison at WrestleMania 37 on Saturday night, and Bad Bunny has been receiving rave reviews for his performance.
Not only has Bad Bunny received positive reviews from fans, but it seems that he has also earned the respect of many WWE Superstars, including Randy Orton.
Orton appeared on The Bump, and he thanked Bad Bunny for having respect for the business while saying that Bad Bunny is officially a WWE Superstar in his eyes.
“For the first time, in this manner, I can say seeing Bad Bunny come into our world. Seeing him completely halt his touring schedule, his music, any kind of thing he had going on, he stopped it dead in its tracks so he could go in the ring. I’ve seen him in there with trainers trying to get as good as he can get. Two, three, four, five hours a day. That impresses me.
“I gotta say thank you to Bad Bunny for having respect for what I do and what everyone else in the locker room does, and what WWE does. I appreciate him, as a fan, but now I can look over at him and call him a fellow performer in my world. It’s a breath of fresh air to know someone like that, with that big of a following, that successful in his own world, steps into our but treats us all with respect. That’s usually not the case when it comes to people coming backstage into our world. I’ve seen it a lot over the years.
“Although, off-topic, I feel it’s important for me to say that I appreciate Bad Bunny and the hard work that he put in to delivering last night. And he did, he knocked everyone’s socks off back here. I was watching and I know he impressed a lot of his fellow WWE Superstars. He’s officially a WWE Superstar, now, in my book.”
