Bad Bunny is a huge wrestling fan and he has never been shy to express his love for the sport. We’re noting every time he’s mentioned his passion for wrestling in his music!
Bad Bunny is officially performing his song ‘Booker T’ at the 2021 Royal Rumble this Sunday!
A few days ago, WWE broke the news across all their social media platforms.
In honor of this, we’re listing all the moments Bad Bunny has referenced wrestling or had pro wrestling legends in his music.
#1. Ric Flair & Stone Cold Steve Austin
The Nature Boy was the first WWE legend to be part of Bad Bunny’s actual music video.
In 2017, Bad Bunny released his song ‘Chambea’ where Ric Flair can be seen dancing with Benito in the video.
They also recorded a short clip together on set.
While Ric Flair isn’t directly mentioned in the song, his presence in the video made it worth the watch.
Bad Bunny even met Ric Flair’s daughter Charlotte Flair during a Monday Night Raw show.
However, Stone Cold Steve Austin was indeed mentioned in the song and while he didn’t participate in the video itself he did make a cameo in Bad Bunny’s ‘¿Quién Tu Eres?’ music video.
He even gave Bad Bunny the stunner!
#2. New World Order & The Undertaker
The song ‘Tu Me Mete Cabras’ Remix sung by Bad Bunny, Anuel AA, Cosculluela, and Daddy Yankee features all the artists in nWo shirts for the cover art.
In the same art, Bad Bunny also has the World Heavyweight Championship around his waist.
Similar to ‘Chambea’, the song doesn’t reference the nWo but it does mention the Undertaker.
The song talks about the ‘deadman’ and the smoke he has during his entrance.
#3. John Cena & The Boogeyman
Bad Bunny made a reference to both wrestlers in his song ‘25/8’ from his album YHLQMDLG.
John Cena’s mention had to do with his catchphrase “You can’t see me” where Bad Bunny said he never lets himself be seen.
For The Boogeyman, Bad Bunny said that he is just like the wrestler, he only comes out when there’s mist.
#4. Eddie Guerreo
Bad Bunny collaborated with Cardi B and J Balvin on the song ‘I Like It’ which was released in 2018.
Bad Bunny’s reference to the late Eddie Guerreo was a beautiful one.
The lyric is as follows: “Guerrero como Eddie, que viva la raza”. The translation of the lyric would be: “A warrior like Eddie, long live the race”.
“Viva la Raza” was, of course, Eddie’s catchphrase throughout his career and was also the title of his entrance music.
Bad Bunny even did Eddie’s signature shoulder shake in the video!

#5. Booker T
Last but not least Booker T!
Prior to its release, Bad Bunny revealed the tracklist for his album El Último Tour Del Mundo on Twitter where track nine was named ‘Booker T’.
The song refers to Bad Bunny being a king and a champion just like the wrestler.
Booker T was also part of the music video for the song where he showed his epic dance moves.
BONUS: Triple H
While Bad Bunny has not mentioned Triple H in his music, he did recreate his iconic entrance when he heard the wrestler’s theme song during an NBA game.
