Bad Bunny To Host WWE Backlash 2023 In Puerto Rico

WWE Backlash is coming to Puerto Rico.

WWE Backlash will take place at Coliseo de Puerto Rico in San Juan, Puerto Rico on May 6. In addition, Bad Bunny will serve as host of the event. Justin Barrasso of Sports Illustrated first reported the Backlash location and Bad Bunny’s involvement.


WWE Backlash will be the first WWE pay-per-view to take place in Puerto Rico since New Year’s Revolution in January 2005. This year’s event also marks the first “Backlash” event since 2020. WWE changed the event name to “WrestleMania Backlash” for the 2021 and 2022 events.

“In 2005, when I was a kid, I wasn’t able to attend New Year’s Revolution at el Coliseo,” Bad Bunny said in a statement. “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,” WWE COO Paul “Triple H” Levesque said in a statement. “Bad Bunny is one of the world’s most-popular entertainers and nowhere is that more evident than in his native Puerto Rico.”

According to WWE, additional details on Backlash will be announced in the coming weeks.
