For a third week in a row, Bad Bunny is staying in his WWE bag. The Puerto Rican rapper also bagged the 24/7 Championship belt during the WWE Raw episode that aired last night (Feb. 15).

Since making his WWE debut at Royal Rumble, at the beginning of the month, Bad Bunny remains a staple in the wrestling company’s shows. Benito marked his third appearance on WWE last night during the weekly Raw series.

While giving a backstage interview with his ally in the WWE, Damien Priest, the guys witnessed R-Truth lose the 24/7 Championship belt to Akira Tozawa. Priest saw an opportunity to take the championship from Tozawa. A few seconds after Tozawa’s short-lived celebrations, Priest knocked him out and told Bad Bunny to pin the wrestler. After the referee gave the three-count, he was awarded the 24/7 Championship belt. Not too bad for only his third WWE appearance.

Bad Bunny is rumored to be training for his wrestling debut at WWE’s Wrestlemania in April. He’s reportedly going to team up with wrestling icon Booker T, who inspired his “Booker T” song on his El Último Tour Del Mundo album. Bad Bunny got the opportunity to perform the song alongside Booker T at the Royal Rumble event.

Bad Bunny winning the 24/7 Championship is a great start to one of the biggest weeks of his career. On Feb. 20, he will make his debut on Saturday Night Live as the night’s musical guest. With his new music video with Rosalía out, there’s a chance the two could perform “La Noche de Anoche” on SNL.
