Bad Bunny, the Puerto Rican rapper, has proven to be a versatile artist as he gained global fame not only for his music but also for his wrestling career in WWE. In a recent appearance on “Carpool Karaoke” on “The Late Late Show” with James Corden, Bad Bunny revealed his passion for wrestling while singing along with Corden to popular songs such as Ariana Grande’s “Break Free” and some of his own hits.
During the episode, Bad Bunny reminisced about his WWE debut, prompting Corden to ask if he would ever consider wrestling himself. Bunny responded with a humorous delay before making it clear that anything is possible. Corden’s reaction to the delay suggested that he understood the challenge Bunny was implying. As they continued their “Carpool Karaoke” journey, they arrived at a wrestling ring where Bad Bunny showcased his wrestling skills by demonstrating various holds on Corden, including a chokehold and an attempt at the camel clutch.
The exchange between Bad Bunny and Corden was both entertaining and engaging, as Corden playfully bantered with the rapper and expressed his surprise at the intensity of the wrestling holds. Corden also remarked that he prefers the theater of wrestling, as opposed to actually participating in it.
Later in the episode, WWE Superstar Rey Mysterio joined Corden and Bad Bunny in the wrestling ring, where he shared tips with Corden on how to create an imposing presence while entering the ring. After practicing some “mean mugs,” James was all set to make his wrestling debut, donning a purple mask and matching tights with black flames. In a hilarious twist, he strutted into the ring to the tune of Cher’s “Believe.”
However, Rey played a dirty trick on the comedian and quickly threw him down to the mat before pinning him. Despite losing his debut match, Corden took the experience in stride and laughed it off with his guests.
Overall, the episode was a hit with fans, as they enjoyed watching Bad Bunny and Corden’s lighthearted banter and seeing the comedian’s wrestling debut. The episode also showcased Bad Bunny’s skills as a wrestler, demonstrating that he truly is a multi-talented artist.
