Bad Bunny And Damian Priest Brawl At Backlash Press Conference

Bad Bunny and Damian Priest

At Backlash, Damian Priest and Bad Bunny will meet in arguably the biggest match of their respective wrestling careers.

In recent weeks things have grown increasingly personal between Priest and the music star, and the former United States Champion Chokeslammed Bad Bunny through the announce table on Raw.

In response, Bad Bunny ran in to save Rey Mysterio from a beatdown at the hands of Priest, attacking him with a Kendo stick. After the attack, it was announced that the pair will meet in a San Juan Street Fight at Backlash.

The pre-show press conference began with Zelina Vega and Rey Mysterio and Rhea Ripley and Dominik Mysterio on the other. During this initial exchange, Vega broke down how much it would mean to win the SmackDown Women’s Title in Puerto Rico as the two sides talked trash.

Next up was Triple H who introduced Cody Rhodes before The Game gave details about a tournament to crown a new World Heavyweight Champion. However, things went up a level when Bad Bunny and Damian Priest came to the stage.

After a heated verbal exchange, Priest shoved Bad Bunny to the floor before the Hip Hop star slapped his rival in the face.

Bad Bunny’s Backlash Plans Changed

Ahead of the star’s clash with Damian Priest, it has been revealed that plans for the match were originally very different. A new report claimed that Bad Bunny had been due to team with Rey Mysterio to take on Dominik Mysterio and Damian Priest. However, as WWE grew increasingly confident in the Grammy Award winner’s in-ring skills, the match was changed.
