Here’s what Orton said:
“We have had a lot of celebrities, over the years since I have been here, come in and try to step into our world and do what we do. Because you know, everyone can do it, right? We make it look easy, but it is not.
And for the first time, maybe not the first time, but for the first time in this manner, I can say that seeing Bad Bunny come into our world, seeing him completely halt his touring schedule, his music, and any kind of thing he had going on. He stopped it dead in the tracks so that he can get in the ring.
I have seen him. Those practice rings, and I have seen him in there with the trainers, trying to get as good as he can get. Two, three, four, five hours a day. That impresses me. And I have to say thank you to Bad Bunny for having respect for what I do and what everyone in the locker room does, and what WWE does. I appreciated him as a fan, but now I can look over at him and call him a fellow performer in my world.
It is a breath of fresh air to see that someone like that, someone with that big kind of a following, someone who is so successful in his own world steps into ours and treats us all with respect, that is not the case always with people coming backstage into our world.
I feel it is important for me to say that I appreciate Bad Bunny and the hard work he put into delivering [at WrestleMania 37]. He knocked everyone’s socks off. I was watching, and I know he impressed a lot of us.
He is officially a WWE Superstar now in my book.”
