With just a few months left before James Corden retires as late-night host, he saved one of the world’s biggest music stars for one of his last carpool karaoke skits. The Late Late Show with James Corden,
bad bunnyPuerto Rico-born Benito Ocasio is the ultimate Latin music star with over 60 songs that have made the Billboard Hot 100 chart, eight of which have been in the top 10.
Bunny hopped in James’ car for a Carpool Karaoke segment that aired earlier tonight and talked about many things including her love for wrestling.
Initially, Corden asked him about his curious choice of name, to which Bad Bunny explained that he initially wanted to be a mysterious music artist who hid his true identity and tried to do so by wearing a bunny mask in his performances. Guessed, hence the name, but he dropped the idea and decided to remain the only one. However the name stuck.
Bunny sang some of her hits, including “Duckity,” and “Titi Me Pregnuto.” She briefly sang her breakthrough hit, “I Like It”, which was her 2018 collaboration with Cardi B and J Balvin.
However, he also celebrated his contemporaries, ending his tenure riding shotgun by singing along to Ariana Grande’s “Break Free” and “As It Was” by Harry Styles. This would potentially make people start to wonder if a potentially monumental collab with either of them could be happening anytime soon.
Corden also put Bad Bunny on the spot after learning that the musical artist spent his childhood drawing every day. After a Jesus-like drawing of Bad Bunny’s host, the star returned the favor but the results weren’t as good as his music. When the shoe was on the other foot, Bunny accurately pointed out that his rendition of the talk show host looked a lot like Donald Trump.
The segment’s most unexpected moment is when Corden wrestled with WWE star Rey Mysterio, who will be inducted into the company’s Hall of Fame during this year’s WrestleMania weekend, which is less than three weeks away (April 1-2). The quick match took place after Bad Bunny discussed his many appearances on the pro wrestling circuit.
In 2021, Bunny performed and then wrestled at the Royal Rumble, and also appeared a few weeks later to help his friend Damian Priest in a match. Does this make Bunny a part of Judgment Day? This is a question that wrestling fans will appreciate.
Although this begs another question. Is there a possibility of Bad Bunny appearing at WrestleMania? Perhaps, but there are very few signs to show it.
Bad Bunny summed up his chance to wrestle for WWE by saying, “It was probably the best day of my life.”
