Bad Bunny goes AIRBORNE at WWE Royal Rumble taking out new rivals The Miz and John Morrison

Reggaeton artist Bad Bunny was slated to perform during WWE‘s Royal Rumble pay-per-view extravaganza, but he ended up finding some new rivals as well.

The 26-year-old rapper (real name Benito Antonio Martínez Ocasio) performed his new song Booker T, alongside the WWE legend of the same name at Sunday night’s event held at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Florida on Sunday night.

The rapper ended up getting into it with two established wrestling pros, The Miz and John Morrison, which escalated to the point where Bad Bunny executed an impressive frog splash from the top rope to take out his new rivals.

Before the show even started, The Miz and John Morrison approached Bad Bunny backstage to pitch them a musical collaboration.

The Puerto Rican declined their offer, which angered the tag team duo to the point that they trashed Bad Bunny’s DJ setup before the Rumble began.

While Bunny’s performance went off without a hitch, Miz and Morrison’s actions still clearly angered the rapper, to the point where he came out during the Royal Rumble match.

Both Miz and Morrison were still alive in the Rumble match – a last man standing match where wrestlers are eliminated by being thrown out of the ring, when Bunny came down to voice his displeasure at M&M.

While WWE referees stopped the Latin trap artist short of the ring, his arrival provided the perfect distraction for another wrestler, Damian Priest, to strike.

With both Miz and Morrison’s backs turned, Priest sent both of them over the top rope and out of the ring, eliminating them from the Royal Rumble, much to the delight of the crowd.

As M&M were both slow to get up from the elimination, Priest encouraged Bunny to head to the top rope, which he did, much to the delight of the crowd.

The rapper climbed to the top rope and delivered an impressive frog splash, taking out both Miz and Morrison in one leap.

‘I’ve heard of flying squirrels, but flying bunny’s?’ announcer Michael Cole exclaimed during the PPV broadcast.

Bad Bunny’s song Booker T was featured on his new album El Último Tour Del Mundo, which was released in late November. 

Booker T himself revealed on his Hall of Fame podcast in December that Bad Bunny, ‘admired what I’d done for the business, for the sport in general.’

‘From somewhere across the water, he’s watching Booker T and he’s digging what I’m doing, it lets me know I did something right as far as going out there from a performance perspective… I always wondered when somebody was going to come out with a song about Booker T, because I knew I was badass, but this is kind of the stamp of approval,’ he added.
