WWE has announced that not only will Backlash on May 6th be held at the Coliseo de Puerto Rico José Miguel Agrelot in San Juan, Puerto Rico, but it will be hosted by two-time Grammy award-winning recording artist Bad Bunny.
Backlash marks the first WWE premium live event to take place in Puerto Rico since January 2005. That show was New Year’s Revolution. The main event was an Elimination Chamber match for the vacant World Heavyweight Championship officiated by Shawn Michaels. HHH defeated Randy Orton, Batista, Chris Jericho, Edge and Chris Benoit to win the championship.
“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.”
