Bad Bunny is one of the most popular recording artists in the world today, but also moonlights as a pro-wrestling superstar.
Debuting at WrestleMania 37, Bad Bunny has impressed with his in-ring skill, as the noted wrestling fan looks like somebody with years more experience than he has.
He has wrestled against some of the top wrestlers in the WWE, and wowed crowds with his incredible offence and acrobatic style of wrestling.
In this article, we’ll talk you through the best matches of Bad Bunny’s career, and note which matches you should go out of your way to watch.
Bad Bunny Best Matches
Now, due to his status as a world-renowned music artist, Bad Bunny is not strictly a professional wrestling.
However, that does not mean he hasn’t had some brilliant matches. The Puerto-Rican star has wrestled in a few matches, but has impressed in every single one of them.
Of his three bouts in WWE so far, he has one of the highest averages of any wrestler ever.
We will rank them and reveal which is Bad Bunny’s best match, at the end of this article.
2022 Royal Rumble Match
First on the list of Bad Bunny’s best matches saw him make a surprise return at the 2022 Royal Rumble.
Despite not being announced beforehand, Bad Bunny shocked the crowd as he entered the Royal Rumble match at the coveted 27 spot, giving him the best chance of winning the match.
He lasted nearly 8 minutes in the match, and impressed in what he did do. He hit a number of moves, including the Canadian Destoryer that is quickly becoming a signature of his.
Sadly, he was thrown out of the match by Brock Lesnar not long before the end. Lesnar won the match, but the 2022 edition has been labelled as the worst Royal Rumble match of all time.
Bad Bunny & Damian Priest vs The Miz & John Morrison (WrestleMania 37)
Just coming in at number 2 was Bad Bunny’s debut match in the WWE. After weeks of appearing on Monday Night Raw to build up to the bout, he wrestled for the first time in a marquee match at WrestleMania 37.
The Puerto Rican singer teamed with his fellow countryman, Damian Priest, to take on the heel duo of John Morrison and The Miz.
Having also worked with Logan Paul at WrestleMania, The Miz is quickly becoming the man to work with celebrity wrestlers, and he showed why by how good he made Bad Bunny look.
The four men wrestled for 15 minutes, and each one made Bad Bunny look like a star. He hit John Morrison with a Canadian Destoryer, before pinning The Miz with a top-rope cross body to win his debut match in te WWE.
This would be by far Bad Bunny’s best match to date, had the WWE not made the bold call to host a pay per view in Puerto Rico in 2023…
Bad Bunny vs Damian Priest – San Juan Street Fight (Backlash 2023)
WWE brought Backlash 2023 to Bad Bunny’s hometown of San Juan, Puerto Rico, much to the adulation of the crowd.
This was the first pay per view in the territory since 2005, and the crowd were absolutely rabid to see their favourite WWE Superstars for the first time.
While the show featured wrestlers like Kevin Owens, Cody Rhodes and Brock Lesnar, it was the appearance of Bad Bunny that caused the biggest pop of the night.
The Puerto Rican rapper wrestled against Damian Priest in a San Juan Street Fight, with no holds barred the match between the two native wrestlers.
Bad Bunny showcased why he is one of the best Puerto Rican wrestlers of all time, having a fantastic match led by Priest. He hit some huge moves that popped the crowd, like a well-executed Michinoku Driver and a devastating Canadian Destroyer.
The match was a hardcore match, so weapons were the order of the day. Puerto Rico was the birthplace of hardcore wrestling, and Bad Bunny carried on the tradition by bringing a cart full of weapons to ring, as the crowd sang along to his entrance music.
The match also featured a number of surprise appearances. After run-ins from Rey Mysterio and Judgement Day, Puerto Rico legends Carlito and Savio Vega appeared to save the day, helping Bad Bunny win the match.
Carlito and Bad Bunny in particular had two of the biggest pops of all time when they came to the ring.
Bad Bunny hit the Canadian Destroyer on Damien Priest to win the match, keeping his non-Royal Rumble match record at a perfect 2-0.
Due to the incredible performance by the star, plus the hometown legends returning for one-night-only, this match at Backlash 2023 is definitely Bad Bunny’s best match so far.
