WWE never ceases to amaze. It’s able to pull off moves that few others could even imagine. That's why it's not uncommon to see famous faces make it into the ring, some managing to stay longer than others. Many of them are often brought in for the really big events, and especially for WrestleMania.

Wrestlemania 37: Bad Bunny

In the past we have seen the likes of Donald Trump, long before he shocked the world by becoming President of the United States, and then there was the first appearance of Ronda Rousey years before she officially became a wrestler. There are many paths to the main event and 2021 will see two very different ones.

The most talked about of these is with singer Bad Bunny (Benito Antonio Martínez Ocasio). The 27-year-old from Puerto Rico dedicated a song to former wrestler and current WWE commentator, Booker T. He released it in January and also performed it live at the first PPV of the year, Royal Rumble. The story may have ended there, but it did not. Bud Bunny also got himself really involved in the battles including his top rope jump that quickly went viral. That was the start of something, along with some help from his friend in and out of the WWE, Damian Priest.

Bud Bunny has been appearing every week on Raw and everything pointed to WrestleMania being his target event. Fellow wrestler Elias (Jeffrey Sciullo), also a singer, got stuck into him and pronounced that there was some musical tension between the two as the Puerto Rican had denied him the chance to create a duet. El Conejo Malo also has a rivalry with The Miz, after the MTV Real World star smashed up his turntables in the Rumble.

Training has been intense this year for Bad Bunny and he will team up with Priest in a tag match against The Miz and his right-hand-man John Morrison.

The singer's presence is a response to the fact that WWE always wants more and wants to reach a wider audience. As a Billboard chart topper, Bad Bunny certainly does that and we can be sure that there will be some big surprises in store for us viewers.
