Bad Bunny To Host WWE Backlash

Global megastar Bad Bunny will be the host of the Backlash Premium Live Event, which will be taking place live in the rappers home country of Puerto Rico.

The musician is no stranger to the ring, having competed in 2 WWE matches. Bad Bunny made his debut at WrestleMania 37, teaming with Damian Priest to defeat John Morrison and The Miz.

The full press release regarding the news is as follows:

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.”

Backlash will air live on the WWE Network on Saturday, May 6th.
