WWE Backlash 2023 will feature a megastar in Bad Bunny as the WWE goes back to Puerto Rico.
WWE has moved on from WrestleMania 39, as its attention turns to the next big PLE on the schedule, WrestleMania Backlash. WWE has brought in the big gun of Bad Bunny to host this showcase in Puerto Rico and expectations are that he will be involved in a big match. WWE excels in these large, special location events and Backlash should have a lot of fanfare to continue its 2023 PLE schedule.
WWE Backlash was usually used to continue angles from WrestleMania. There’s continued concern over the creative leadership in WWE, and many fans are keeping a close eye on this card to see how the creative booking shapes up.
\WWE Backlash 2023 is scheduled for Saturday, May 6. It will hail from the Coliseo de Puerto Rico Jose Miguel Agrelot in San Juan, Puerto Rico. This is the WWE’s first event in Puerto Rico since January 2005. Ticket sales for the event opened on March 21.
