At WWE Backlash, Bad Bunny turned in what has been heralded as one of the greatest celebrity wrestling performances in history.
The Hip Hop star went to war with Damian Priest in front of his adoring Puerto Rican public, hitting Michinoku Driver, a Destroyer, and he was also driven through two tables for good measure.
The chaotic bout featured run-ins from Judgment Day, Rey Mysterio and the LWO, and even Carlito and veteran Savio Vega.
Appearing on New Music Daily with Zane Lowe, the star reflected on the match, the incredible atmosphere, and the toll that the match took on his body. Bad Bunny said that the match was one of the best moments of his life, but the physical pain afterward was very real.
“Wow, that was insane. That was really crazy, the people, the energy was another level. What happened that night, I’m never going to forget it,” he said. “I remember, I said before the WrestleMania fight that day was one of my favorite moments of my life, but the Backlash fight in Puerto Rico was another level. It was really one of the biggest and best moments of my life, I really enjoyed that fight.
I suffered. Yeah, I got hurt. I got hurt. My back, my back. My whole body, bro. My whole body. I felt that I was going to die after that match. I really thought that I was going to die after the match, but it’s part of it. I was prepared then, and now I’m going to drop a song. I know. I’m a crazy guy. I love it. I love it, and that’s what matters,”
