A WWE Hall of Famer has called Bad Bunny “the best celebrity wrestler of all time.”
At WWE Backlash, Bad Bunny defeated Damian Priest in a critically acclaimed San Juan Street Fight. The highly entertaining bout featured cameos from WWE legends Carlito and Savio Vega.
On Monday’s episode of Busted Open Radio, WWE Hall of Famer and AEW personality Mark Henry revealed just how great he thinks Bunny is when it comes to celebrity wrestlers. He said:
“Bad Bunny is the greatest, the absolute, no peers whatsoever, greatest celebrity wrestler of all time,”
“There is nobody close. Lawrence Taylor is right there, Pat McAfee did a hell of a job. But Bad Bunny is on another level.”
Gushing over Bunny’s ability to sell and express emotion, Henry said:
“He was playing like a veteran wrestler, the way that he sold, the way that he recovered. [He was] smart enough to roll out of the ring. He registered. The dude emotionally got that crowd in a frenzy.”
“You said it could’ve been the main event. You mean to tell me that a celebrity could main event over Brock Lesnar and Cody Rhodes? Yeah.”
“And how can you argue that he is not the greatest? That was some incredible wrestling.”
“I said that match with him and Priest was going to be good, because it had to. I had no idea that Bunny had this in him. I’m going to step off the box, but nobody is close. Better than Andy Kaufman.”
As previously reported, WWE were reportedly very pleased with Bad Bunny’s performance at WWE Backlash.
