• How Long Did Bad Bunny Take To Learn The Canadian Destroyer?
Current RAW Superstar Damian Priest, whom some of you might remember as ROH wrestler Punishment Martinez, recently spoke to SK Wrestling about him training famous rapper Bad Bunny for their WrestleMania 37 Tag Team match against The Miz and John Morrison.
Their team won the match and Bad Bunny even performed a Canadian Destroyer (famous finisher of TNA/Impact Wrestler Petey Williams), which the rapper was taught in the WWE Performance Center, where he trained with Adam Pearce, Drew Gulak and of course his WrestleMania Tag Team partner.
You can watch him perform the Canadian Destroyer on Morrison at WrestleMania 37 below:
Priest revealed that Bad Bunny learned to perform the Canadian Destroyer just one day before WrestleMania 37.
Here’s what 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 in 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.
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.’”
