See The Full Cold Open Video For WWE Backlash PLE

Tonight, WWE holds its first premium live event since WrestleMania 39, WWE Backlash. Thankfully, the widely disliked "WrestleMania Backlash" name wasn't brought back for 2023. Backlash sees WWE stage their first big event in Puerto Rico since New Year's Revolution 2005, and as seen last night on "WWE SmackDown," the Puerto Rican fans are already quite energized for the show. Making Backlash extra special for the fans in Puerto Rico is that music icon and Puerto Rico native Bad Bunny is set to both host the show and participate in a match against The Judgment Day's Damian Priest, who is
himself also of Puerto Rican descent.


While WWE fans both in Puerto Rico and everywhere else prepare to witness Backlash tonight though, WWE has seen fit to release the full cold open for the event on their YouTube channel. Check it out below.

Elsewhere on the Backlash card, another WWE star of Puerto Rican heritage, Zelina Vega, is set to challenge Rhea Ripley for the "SmackDown" Women's Championship, "The American Nightmare" Cody Rhodes looks to turn his fortunes around after losing to Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 39 by defeating "The Beast" Brock Lesnar, and Sami Zayn, Kevin Owens and Matt Riddle write another chapter in their rivalry with The Bloodline's Usos and Solo Sikoa. Rounding out the card, Seth "Freakin" Rollins battles Omos, Austin Theory defends his US Title against both Bobby Lashley and Bronson Reed, and Damage CTRL's IYO SKY challenges Bianca Belair for the "WWE Raw" Women's Championship.
