Hip-hop sensation Bad Bunny was one of the few guests on the latest episode of HBO’s The Shop, which features NBA superstar Lebron James leading a round-table discussion on a multitude of topics. The episode also featured rap icon Jay-Z.
During the show Bunny was asked about his experience working for WWE. Highlights of his conversation can be found below.
Someone asked whether wrestling is real:
It’s real. It’s 100% real. No it’s insane. When it was like learning the first days, they teach you how to fall, the bumps. I said like, ‘How these people can do this like 20, 30 years. The Undertaker, Triple H for many years receiving that pain, it’s crazy. It’s crazy, but I love it.
How he got into wrestling as a kid:
I used to watch with my dad, my friends, brother.
Lebron James would go on to say that he was also heavy into wrestling, with Jay-Z adding that WrestleMania is at times bigger than the NFL’s Superbowl.
Calls working Mania the best moment of his life:
More than The Grammy’s, that was the best moment of my life.
How long his training was:
Three months. I moved to Orlando for three months. Training every day, every day, I not recorded any songs.
