Bad Bunny is a multi-talented artist who has garnered global fame not only as a rapper but also as a WWE Superstar. He truly loves and respects the business, which is why Bunny will be hosting WWE Backlash next month. While many doubt his intentions, Big E believes Bad Bunny Isn’t doing it for a paycheck.
The company will be heading outside the United States for the WWE Backlash premium live event. Taking place in San Juan, Puerto Rico, the event is set to have Bad Bunny as the host.
This will be the first WWE Premium Live Event to take place in Puerto Rico since New Year’s Revolution in January 2005. It will be held at Coliseo de Puerto Rico José Miguel Agrelot on May 6th and fans are definitely excited for the event, especially for Bad Bunny’s role in the event.
While speaking on the Battleground Podcast, Big E talked about Bad Bunny being the host for WWE Backlash. Big E made it clear that he believes Bad Bunny isn’t doing the gig just for a paycheck.
“I’m not knocking any celebrity who comes in, takes a paycheck, and does what they’re asked, that’s fine. But you can tell with him, it’s so much more than that. He’s a guy who truly loves this. I think pro wrestling was his first love and grew up watching WWE. For me, it’s so dope and amazing to see someone like him, who is a massive, massive star, and comes in so humbly and so energetically to do what we do.”
The Backlash Premium Live Event is already sold out. We will have to wait and see how Bad Bunny will perform in his role as the host. Fans certainly believe he will excel in his upcoming role.
