WWE Star Damian Priest recently spoke with Sportskeeda’s Rick Ucchino on how he and Bad Bunny trained ahead of their huge WrestleMania 37 win over The Miz and John Morrison. Priest said he knew Bunny was going to surprise the fans as he has been working with the Grammy-Award winning rapper since the week prior to the Royal Rumble and that they have been in the ring every single week and that Bad even put the work and he knows, cause he was there.
Damian Priest said, “I knew he was going to surprise people.” “Like I’ve been working with him since the week before Royal Rumble. We’ve been in the ring every single week. He put it the work and I know, cause I was there. I watched him, I watched him go through pain. I watched him bleed. I watched him struggle to stand up and I also watched him say, ‘Let’s do that again. Let’s keep going. No, no, let’s go, let’s go.’ And not quit."
“You know, every single week we had our time that we had booked at the Performance Center and then he would create extra time and ask for extra time, like before RAW. We would even go to SmackDowns just to work out and then leave.”
Damian Priest then revealed that Bad Bunny learned the Canadian Destroyer maneuver the day before the match.
Priest said, “I remember I showed him a video, because he knew what the move was and I was trying to explain to him how to do it.” “And I’m actually like, ‘What do you think?’ “He was like, ‘I don’t know man. WrestleMania’s tomorrow. You want me to do that?’ And I was like, ‘It’d be really sweet if you could.'”
