Sunday’s Royal Rumble pay-per-view will include a special pro wrestling-inspired musical performance.
WWE has announced that Bad Bunny “will perform his hit single ‘Booker T’ off his new album ‘El Último Tour Del Mundo’ live for the first time” at the Royal Rumble this coming Sunday. The song is named after WWE Hall of Famer Booker T, who appears in its music video. After being released at the beginning of this month, the video currently has more than 39 million views on YouTube.
“Bad Bunny’s most recent and third album of 2020, ‘El Último Tour Del Mundo’ debuted at #1 on the ‘Billboard 200’ chart, the first all-Spanish-language album to reach #1 in the 64-year history of the all-genre chart, as well as #1 on Apple Music’s global ‘Top Albums’ chart for all genres,” WWE.com wrote.
“Performing at the Royal Rumble is a childhood dream come true,” said Bad Bunny. “I have been a lifelong fan of WWE and I am excited to take the stage and entertain fans around the world.”
“Bad Bunny is at the top of the music industry, and a pop culture icon with strong ties to WWE and our fans around the world,” said Neil Lawi, Senior Vice President and General Manager, WWE Music Group. “We are thrilled to provide a global platform for his first-ever live performance of ‘Booker T’ as we kick off the road to WrestleMania.”
The Royal Rumble main card will begin at 7 p.m. Eastern time on Sunday. The PPV features the men’s and women’s Royal Rumble matches, Drew McIntyre vs. Goldberg for the WWE Championship, Roman Reigns vs. Kevin Owens in a Last Man Standing match for the Universal Championship, and Sasha Banks vs. Carmella for the SmackDown Women’s Championship.
