Rey Mysterio Presents Bad Bunny With One Of His Trademark Masks

Rey Mysterio

Following his return to WWE at the 2022 Royal Rumble, Bad Bunny was given an unexpected gift by Rey Mysterio.

At the 2021 Royal Bunny launched himself into the minds of wrestling fans as well as onto The Miz and John Morrison from the top rope. After his eye-catching debut the rapper continued appearing on WWE television, eventually teaming with Damian Priest to defeat The Miz and Morrison at WrestleMania 37.

Bad Bunny’s WrestleMania outing saw him hit a Canadian Destroyer as well as earning plaudits across the board for his commitment and overall performance.

Fast-forward to January 2022 and the star was back in a WWE ring as a surprise entrant in the men’s Royal Rumble match. The former 24/7 Champion entered the match at number 27, eliminating Sheamus and Dolph Ziggler. However, despite making it to the final five, his run was dramatically and rather painfully cut short by an F-5 and elimination by eventual winner Brock Lesnar.

Not that things didn’t improve when he got backstage. In a new clip posted by WWE, former World Champion Rey Mysterio gifted Bad Bunny one of his trademark masks.

As usual, the 2022 Royal Rumble was a night of surprises with both the men’s and women’s matches throwing up unexpected winners.

The women’s Rumble match was eventually won by Ronda Rousey. The former Raw Women’s Champion was appearing for the first time in almost three years, and impressively just four months after giving birth to her daughter. The former UFC star will choose which champion she will face at WrestleMania on the February 4th episode of SmackDown.

Meanwhile, it was Brock Lesnar who swooped in to win the men’s match after losing his WWE Championship to Bobby Lashley a little over an hour earlier. Lesnar will face Roman Reigns at WrestleMania, but only after he attempts to regain his WWE Title at Elimination Chamber.
