Bad Bunny found out firsthand how painful professional wrestling can get during an appearance on the WWE’s Monday Night Raw last night (April 3).
The icon had a great view from his front-row seat during a match between Dominik Mysterio and his legendary father Rey Mysterio, a follow-up to their fight at Wrestlemania 39 this past weekend where Bad Bunny got involved and helped Rey secure the victory.
During Monday night’s fight, Bad Bunny began talking to Dominik from the crowd, which prompted the young wrestler to confront the superstar and tell him that he shouldn’t butt into family affairs. An exchange of words wasn’t enough for Dominik, however, and he took a swing at Bad Bunny, who blocked his punch and countered with his own straight to the wrestler’s face.
Puerto Rican wrestler Damian Priest, who was at ringside, then took matters into his own hands and forcefully pulled the icon out of the crowd and onto the floor near the ring. “You didn’t need to get involved, bro,” Priest told him.
After some more shoves and punches, Priest picked Bad Bunny up by the throat and choked-slammed him through a nearby announcer’s table. With Bad Bunny wriggling in pain, WWE commentators began to say things like “Someone get help” and “Bunny’s hurt.” Later, Rey comes to the aid of a debilitated Bad Bunny and begins yelling for paramedics.
It’s not known if he was actually hurt during the brawl, but there were plenty of wrestling websites and Twitter users spreading the news that he had separated his shoulder.
We guess we’ll have to wait and see if he shows up to Coachella in an arm sling in 10 days. Even if he does, this is the WWE we’re talking about, and Bad Bunny seems like the kind of wrestling superfan that would play up a narrative for as long as the WWE wanted him to.
If Bad Bunny truly is injured, get well soon, Benito.
