WWE today announced that 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 headlined by an Elimination Chamber match.
“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 is a former 24/7 champion who impressed many people with his in-ring efforts when he teamed with Damian Priest to defeat The Miz and John Morrison at WrestleMania 37 and competed in the 2022 men’s Royal Rumble match.
Presale registration has opened up, but the on sale date was not announced.
