Bad Bunny, a two-time Grammy winner, will return to the WWE on May 6 as the presenter of Wrestlemania Backlash. Nearly two months prior to the high-profile live event, WWE made the major statement and officially confirmed its return to the nation for the first time since 2005. A high-profile live performance was last held on the island 18 years ago.
The 28-year-old joined the WWE in 2021 and has been a longtime fan. He participated in a plot with The Miz and John Morrison during the Royal Rumble in 2021. At Wrestlemania 37, he and Damian Priest took on the reigning Tag Team Champions.

“In 2005 when I was a kid, I wasn’t able to attend New Year’s Revolution at el Coliseo. Finally, 18 years later WWE returns to the island with a massive event and this time I won’t miss it.”
Contrary to many other well-known figures who have previously been linked to WWE, Bad Bunny stole the show and delivered a Match of the Night display during the tag team contest. At Royal Rumble 2022, where he made his subsequent appearance, he debuted at position 27.
Sheamus was removed from the contest by him.Brock Lesnar notably gave Bad Bunny an F5 before the eventual victor eliminated him. Since that time, he hasn’t appeared on WWE Programming. Even so, Bad Bunny made an appearance in the WWE game’s commercial.
No Bad Bunny matches will take place at Wrestlemania Backlash. He will probably amuse the audience with his act, and it appears he will also appear in a few segments.
Wrestlemania Backlash 2023 will be the show’s third edition. Previously, the annual event was only known as Backlash. WWE added the term Wrestlemania before Backlash in 2021. Last year, Roman Reigns and The Usos faced Drew McIntyre, Randy Orton, and Matt Riddle in the show’s big event.
