WWE has announced that the two-time Grammy award-winning and global recording artist Bad Bunny will host Backlash on May 6th 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,” commented 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 made several appearances for WWE already, including as an entrant in the 2022 Royal Rumble, and teaming with Damian Priest to defeat The Miz and John Morrison at WrestleMania 37.

Additional details on Backlash will be announced in the near future.
