San Juan Loses Its Collective Mind For Bad Bunny Entrance At WWE Backlash

It was no surprise that when Puerto Rican rapper Bad Bunny came out for his street fight against The Judgment Day's Damian Priest, the crowd at the Coliseo de Puerto Rico Jose Miguel Agrelot in Puerto Rico went wild. 

The San Juan crowd reacted to the "Me porto bonito" singer as if it was Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson or "Stone Cold" Steve Austin making surprise returns. The crowd also had given love to Zelina Vega earlier in the night, who was close to winning the "WWE SmackDown" Women's Championship against another Judgment Day member, Rhea Ripley. 

The feud between Bad Bunny and Priest, which ultimately culminated in the match at Backlash, started after Bunny helped Rey Mysterio in his match against his son and Judgment Day member Dominik at WrestleMania 39. The night after WrestleMania 39, on the April 3 episode of "WWE Raw," Priest chokeslammed him through the announce desk. Bunny and Priest have history with each other in WWE, but previously the two were on the same side, as when Bunny started his WWE career, it was Priest who he teamed with. 

The street fight match at Backlash ended with Bunny getting the win over Priest, with the help of Rey Mysterio, the LWO, and former WWE Superstars Carlito and Savio Vega.

The first time that WWE ever held a Premium Live Event in Puerto Rico was in January 2005 for New Year's Revolution, and with the incredible crowd reaction at Backlash, it's only a matter of time before they return to the island. Full results of Saturday night's WWE PLE are available here.
