There may be a Bad Bunny SummerSlam match in the works
In the near future, Bad Bunny could be in line for another WWE match after his successful San Juan Street Fight against Damian Priest at Backlash in Puerto Rico last weekend.
Savio Vega talked about Bad Bunny and what could be next for him in WWE in an interview with WrestleBinge (h/t Steve Carrier of Ringside News).
In reference to WWE, Vega praised Bunny and hinted that he might have his next match at SummerSlam in August.
He competed in the 2022 men’s Royal Rumble match and made his WWE in-ring debut at WrestleMania 37.
Despite being his first one-on-one match, he still managed to knock it out of the park with Priest, demonstrating he still had excellent chemistry. They were also aided by several run-ins that helped keep up the crowd energy, including surprise appearances by Vega and another Puerto Rican wrestling star in Carlito.
This week, Brian Kendrick revealed on the Hitting The Turnbuckle podcast (h/t Felix Upton of Ringside News) that WWE brought him in to help produce Jamie Noble’s match.
That was likely due to his work behind the scenes with Bunny and Priest in preparation for WrestleMania 37.
The WWE seemed to hit all the right buttons with Bad Bunny at Backlash, and a match with him at SummerSlam would undoubtedly be a big deal to fans.
KSI says he won’t wrestle for WWE
Logan Paul’s WrestleMania 39 match against Seth Rollins got KSI involved, but it appears that’s the extent of his WWE involvement.
Paul’s friend and business partner shot down the idea of wrestling in WWE on the JOE YouTube channel (h/t Subhojeet Mukherjee of Ringside News).
“Probably not,” KSI said. “I don’t mind appearing here and there, but I won’t be joining WWE, man. Big up [to] all the wrestlers at WWE, but that s–t is way too much for me. I can’t take that many bumps; I’d much rather just watch it.”
At WrestleMania 39, Paul was accompanied by a large bottle of Prime energy drink as a mascot.
In the suit, KSI, who owns Prime with Paul, attempted to intervene on Paul’s behalf.
KSI was placed on the announce table by Rollins, and Paul accidentally splashed through his friend, incapacitating him.
While Rollins won the bout, Paul has not been seen on WWE programming since then. WWE undoubtedly has big plans for him.
A huge spot on the Grandest Stage of Them All gave KSI a taste of what it’s like to be a pro wrestler, but his comments suggest he isn’t ready for a career inside the squared circle, unlike Paul.
WWE’s Maxxine Dupri wants to make her debut in the ring
She has been exclusively a manager in her WWE career, but she wants to mix things up in the ring.
According to Germany’s WWE Die Woche (h/t Mukherjee), Dupri is ready to wrestle if needed:
“Let’s just say that I am prepared and I will dominate if I have to. But I’m not gonna get my fingernails dirty on someone who’s not worth it. So, when it is time, that’s gonna happen.
“I’m prepared. That’s what I’m gonna say. You gotta just stay tuned in but just know that if someone crosses me incorrectly, I’m prepared.”
It appeared that Dupri would have succeeded Robert Stone as Von Wagner’s manager when she made her WWE debut last year in NXT under the name Sofia Cromwell.
When Max Dupri created Maximum Male Models, she was quickly promoted to the main roster and rebranded as Maxxine Dupri.
Whenever Max Dupri reverted back to his LA Knight gimmick, Maxxine took over, and she has been in charge ever since. Recently, Maxxine has been trying to lure Otis away from Chad Gable and into Maximum Male Models.
