He will be replaced with another wrestler of a similar caliber, same or higher, following with our surprises with our roster of wrestlers from all over the world for a spectacular event. Thank you for the support and interest in Federacion Wrestling.”

- Speaking with Sports Illustrated, The Miz opened up about whether or not he asked to work with Bad Bunny leading up to WrestleMania 37.
"A little bit of both. Any time a celebrity comes in, you’re getting a different demographic than we’re normally used to. With Bad Bunny, he’s a megastar. So, of course, I want to be part of the eyeballs he brings in, and I want to be a reason those eyeballs stay and continue watching. That’s a challenge, a challenge that I love.
"When I wrestle, I wrestle talent that have wrestled for years and years. This is different—it’s someone that’s never wrestled before, but I don’t want the audience to notice the difference. It’s like Dancing With the Stars, when someone that has never danced before looks like the greatest dancer ever. That’s because of the professional dancer. It’s the same thing in WWE. A WWE superstar can make someone look incredible if that person is up for the task."
