GRAMMY award winning music star Bad Bunny has become a member of the WWE family after his incredible performance back at WrestleMania 37.
WWE has been teasing a potential premium live event in Puerto Rico recently following the success of international events in Cardiff and Canada for Clash at the Castle and Elimination Chamber respectively.
Well, WWE today officially announced that Backlash will be heading to Puerto Rico on May 6, with Bad Bunny set to host the show.
STAMFORD, Conn., March 8, 2023 – WWE today announced that the two-time GRAMMY award-winning and global recording artist Bad Bunny will host Backlash on Saturday, May 6, live from the Coliseo de Puerto Rico José Miguel Agrelot in San Juan, Puerto Rico.
Backlash marks the first WWE premium live event to take place in Puerto Rico since January 2005.
“In 2005 when I was a kid, I wasn’t able to attend New Year’s Revolution at el Coliseo,” said Bad Bunny. “Finally, 18 years later WWE returns to the island with a massive event and this time I won’t miss it.”
“We’re excited to bring Backlash to San Juan as the demand for WWE premium live events outside of the continental United States continues to grow,” said WWE Chief Content Officer Paul “Triple H” Levesque. “Bad Bunny is one of the world’s most-popular entertainers and nowhere is that more evident than in his native Puerto Rico.”
