The stage is set for WWE Backlash and features three matches that appear to be top contenders for the main event. The first is a duel between Brock Lesnar and Cody Rhodes, two of WWE’s biggest names. The second is a match between WWE Tag Team Champions, Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens, and formidable duo Matt Riddle and The Bloodline (The Usos and Solo Sikoa). Finally, there’s the much-anticipated street battle between Bad Bunny and Damian Priest.
It’s worth noting that WWE built the program around Bad Bunny, who not only hosted but also wrestled at the event. With the company focusing so much on Bunny, it’s likely that his match will become the main event of the show.
In fact, a tweet from WRKD Wrestling’s Twitter account suggested that WWE was promoting Bunny’s match as the main event. The tweet says “Priest will continue to heat up their feud with Bad Bunny, as they push ahead with the main event #Backlash.”
On a recent episode of Raw, Priest delivered a threatening warning to Bunny in Spanish before winning a tag match against The Judgment Day, where he pinned Rey Mysterio with a blow. his ending, South of Heaven.
This will be Bad Bunny’s third wrestling match, following his wrestling match at WrestleMania 37 and his appearance in the 2022 men’s Royal Rumble match. However, it will be his first one-on-one fight. and obviously WWE is putting a lot of effort into making this match a spectacle.
