WWE Backlash was a huge success. Cody Rhodes survived Backlash with a victory against Brock Lesnar by the skin of his teeth. Bad Bunny towered over his opponent Damian Priest, who was accompanied by lucha libre and Puerto Rican luminaries. On Saturday, the fervent San Juan audience was ecstatic from beginning to end, elevating every match presented at WWE’s first major Puerto Rican show in 18 years.
After Lesnar derailed Rhodes’ preparations for an unchallenged global championship rematch against Roman Reigns, Rhodes exacted the revenge he so dearly desired. It was a bloodbath and one of the most exciting modern-day Lesnar matches. Rhodes’ victory against the beast required a mix of ruthlessness, agility, and strategic supremacy.
Bad Bunny discarded his celebrity status once more and put his body on the line like a genuine WWE superstar. A very entertaining San Juan Street Fight between Bad Bunny and Damian Priest featured fan service, weaponry, and a particularly stunning high spot.
