He’s been around so much over the past few months that it’s been easy to forget that Bad Bunny is a celebrity WWE brought in for publicity as opposed to simply another wrestler on the roster. He’s fit right in next to Damian Priest, running around feuding with The Miz & John Morrison.
That feud culminated in a tag team match tonight (Sat., April 10, 2021) at night one of WrestleMania 37 at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida.
But first, BUNNIES:
Hey hey, hop hop.
Bunny actually started the match, and while he had the usual issues first timers do — namely that while he’s decent enough at selling, he was really awkward as far as taking offense — he also actually executed enough offense of his own to delight the crowd.
I mean, look at this guy!
They went a bit long with the bad guys working Bunny over in anticipation of the hot tag to Priest, and the crowd seemed to go out of it a bit. They did well enough to bring them back for the actual tag, though. They set up a very good false finish that led to the high spot of the match, Bunny doing a dive off the top turnbuckle to the outside.
Then it got better.
Bunny hit Morrison with a Canadian Destroyer on the outside.
Then he got in and hit a crossbody on Miz off Priest’s shoulders to score the pinfall and the victory. They took too long getting to the good stuff but once they got there, it was a damn good match, considering who was involved.
