WWE WrestleMania has passed and WWE Superstars look to settle grudges during WWE Backlash 2023. This year’s premium live event will be held at the Coliseo de Puerto Rico José Miguel Agrelot in San Juan, Puerto Rico. For the first time since New Year’s Revolution in January 2005, a WWE event will take place in Puerto Rico.
To celebrate the occasion, global music superstar and Puerto Rico native and Grammy Award-winning rapper Bad Bunny will be featured at the event. Originally, Bad Bunny was going to host the 18th edition of the event, however, he will step inside the ring to compete against Damian Priest, who is of Puerto Rican descent, in a San Juan Street Fight.
