Fresh off the back of appearing at WrestleMania 39, Bad Bunny was seated in the front row for Raw on April 3rd.
Early on in the show the Hip Hop star was interviewed at ringside about WWE heading to Puerto Rico for Backlash. Bad Bunny explained that he was excited about the event, but tonight he was just there as a fan.
While that might have been his intention, he quickly found himself in the thick of the action.
On the show, Rey Mysterio came to the ring to reflect on his WrestleMania weekend but was quickly interrupted by Austin Theory. After trading insults the pair ended up in a match in which Mysterio seemed to be on the way to winning until his son Dominik got involved. After costing Rey the match, Dominik attacked his father, before turning his attention to Bad Bunny.
The star had helped Rey defeat Dominik at WrestleMania 39.
With revenge on his mind, Dominik confronted Bad Bunny, before Damian Priest also got involved. After Bad Bunny hit Dominik, Priest pulled him over the barrier and he hit Dominik again.
This proved too far for Priest who roughed up the star some more before hitting him with a devastating Chokeslam through the announce table.
