In an interview with The Daily Show, former WWE 24/7 Champion, Bad Bunny, revealed how he needed WWE during the pandemic.
The Puerto Rican rapper admitted that he enjoyed the whole process of how things unfolded in WWE. Bad Bunny added that he had dropped three albums at the time but wasn't able to host any concert performances, hence, the rapper needed something for his adrenaline rush:
“Enjoyed the whole process, I needed it with the whole pandemic and all that stuff. I dropped three albums but had no concert performances. I wanted something, you know, adrenaline." (H/T: Wrestling Inc)
Bad Bunny further revealed the story of how he joined WWE. In the past, Bunny's music videos have featured notable WWE icons and legends.
According to him, WWE must have watched his music videos, where he was seen collaborating with the likes of 'Stone Cold' Steve Austin and Ric Flair.
“I had been collaborating with wrestlers in my videos, like Stone Cold [Steve Austin] and Ric Flair. So, I think they started to watch that and said, ‘Who is this guy working with [wrestlers]?'”
