WWE issued the following press release to announce that WWE Backlash will be held Saturday, May 6 in San Juan, Puerto Rico at Coliseo de Puerto Rico José Miguel Agrelot with Bad Bunny as the host.
STAMFORD, Conn.–(BUSINESS WIRE)– WWE (NYSE: WWE) today announced that the two-time GRAMMY® award-winning and global recording artist Bad Bunny will host Backlash on Saturday, May 6, 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,” 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.”

Additional details on Backlash will be announced in the coming weeks.
Powell’s POV: It’s great to see WWE running more international premium live events. The listed capacity for the venue is 18,500. It will be interesting to see if Bad Bunny makes his return to the ring or if he sticks to a non-wrestling host role.
