• Bad Bunny Returning To WWE Under A New Role
WWE announced the following today regarding Bad Bunny:
Bad Bunny to host Backlash live in Puerto Rico on Saturday, May 6
“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.””
Bad Bunny has wrestled two matches in WWE so far. He won a tag team match at WrestleMania 37. He entered the Men’s Royal Rumble 2022 match and got eliminated.
