WWE Backlash has come and gone, leaving fans with much to say. For many, the highlight of the show was the San Juan street fight between Bad Bunny and Damian Priest, hailed as one of the best fights of the night. While the match itself was certainly impressive, it was made even more impressive by the support of a controversial guest producer.
Brian Kendrick, a former WWE star, made waves in the wrestling community when comments about Holocaust denial resurfaced, leading to his cancellation of several events. However, it seems that Kendrick is turning the tide and trying to correct his past mistakes.
According to PW Insider, Kendrick was present at WWE Backlash as a producer, where he was auditioning for the role. Along with Jamie Noble, he assisted in the production of the San Juan street fight between Bad Bunny and Damian Priest. This isn’t the first time Kendrick has tried his hand at producer, as he had previously tried out on Survivor Series a few months ago.
Former WWE star Brian Kendrick worked as a Producer at Backlash last night, months after he auditioned as a Producer at Survivor Series. Kendrick worked alongside Jamie Noble to produce Last Night’s San Juan Street Fight.
While Kendrick’s past remains controversial, it remains to be seen whether WWE decides to keep him in this new role. However, it is clear that Kendrick’s contributions helped make Bad Bunny vs Damian Priest one of the standout moments of the night. The Puerto Rican fans present took full advantage of WWE’s rare appearance on their island and the response to the match was extremely positive throughout the night.
