It’s a Hall Of Fame thing. Wrestling has a history of working with celebrities and it has been a mixed bag over the years. There are several celebrities who are there for the sake of promoting their latest project and nothing more, while there are occasionally celebrities there for their love of wrestling (among other things). The latter was the case this week and a WWE legend got involved as a result.

Bad Bunny, who has worked with WWE multiple times in the past and is set to host this year’s Backlash, was a guest on the Late Late Show this week. During the interview, wrestling was brought up, resulting in Bunny bringing out Rey Mysterio. Host James Corden then faced Mysterio in a match, where he was quickly defeated. Mysterio is set to be inducted into the WWE Hall Of Fame later this month.
Kind of one sided. Check out the match (the wrestling portion begins at around 11:00), plus Bunny and Mysterio in WWE:
Opinion: This is one of those things that comes off as insanity to a lot of the fans watching at home but for wrestling fans, it can be very cool to see someone getting this kind of publicity. Bunny is clearly a huge wrestling fan and if he can use his celebrity status to bring more eyes to wrestling, hopefully he continues to do so for a very long time to come. WWE does not get this kind of exposure very often and it was cool to see it here.
What did you think of the segment? Will Bunny wrestle again? Let us know in the comments below.
