It’s been clear for some time now, considering all of their interactions backstage and even in the ring, that The Miz and Bad Bunny were on a collision course. Just weeks out from WrestleMania 37, scheduled for April 10 & 11 at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida, the gauntlet has finally been thrown down:

Miz would then wrestle Jeff Hardy in a straight singles match, pinning him clean in the middle of the ring. Immediately after, Bad Bunny ran in from behind with a guitar and broke it over Miz’s back. Then he got on the mic.
“You know what? I accept your challenge, bitch!”

Initial rumors suggested it would be a tag team match, with Bunny teaming up with Damian Priest, an actual wrestler who is trained in this, to take on The Miz & John Morrison. That way Bunny wouldn’t have to do too much.
That’s still a possibility, of course. For now, it’s The Miz vs. Bad Bunny.
