WWE seems to have big plans for Bad Bunny beyond his involvement at Backlash in May.
It has now been reported that the Hip Hop star took part in a training session with Damian Priest and Jamie Noble on March 14th. Furthermore, it is believed that this is to prepare him to be physically involved at WrestleMania.
The report from Wrestle Votes via GiveMeSport, added that the session took place at a training facility in Los Angeles.
“On March 14, Bad Bunny, Damian Priest and Jamie Noble went to a training facility in Los Angeles to work things out. I can’t confirm if its for WrestleMania or Backlash, but I think it’s WrestleMania. There was a training session involving the three of them.”
The popular Twitter account added that while Priest was involved in the session, that doesn’t necessarily mean he’ll be involved in an on-screen angle with the star.
“I don’t know if that means Priest is directly involved, or what physicality Bad Bunny is doing, but he’s training for physicality.”
Bad Bunny Set For WWE Return
Bad Bunny made his WWE debut at the 2021 Royal Rumble performing his hit track Booker T alongside the WWE Hall of Famer. Over the coming weeks, he made regular appearances on Monday Night Raw alongside Damian Priest. This led to a tag team match at WrestleMania 37 where he teamed with his fellow Puerto Rican star to defeat The Miz and John Morrison.
The star returned to WWE as a special entrant in the 2022 Royal Rumble, entering at number 27.
It was recently revealed that Bad Bunny will be the special guest host of Backlash on May 6th as WWE returns to Puerto Rico.
