WWE Backlash was back in Puerto Rico on Saturday for the first time since 2005, and Puerto Rican superstar Bad Bunny returned to the ring.
Bunny followed up his WrestleMania 37 debut by taking on Damian Priest in a San Juan Street Fight. It is quite the turn of events from when they were tag team partners two years ago.
The Grammy Award-winning artist walked out to his 2017 song "Chambea," which features WWE icon Ric Flair in its music video.

Once he made it in the ring, he was assisted by Puerto Rican former wrestling stars Savio Vega and Carlito, who made surprise appearances in the match after Finn Balor and Dominik Mysterio stepped in to defend Priest.
Bad Bunny's homecoming ending up being a success as he defeated Priest and received a gift from Vega.

The marquee match capped a busy stretch for the singer, whose real name is Benito Antonio Martínez Ocasio.
On Monday, he was at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York for the 2023 Met Gala. He donned an all-white custom Jacquemus suit with an open back, cape and 26-foot floral train.

He also was called out on "Monday Night Raw."

Shortly before that, the crooner made history as the first Spanish-language artist to headline the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival.

Although these events did not assist him in the ring Saturday, he's certainly one of the most well-rounded individuals involved in a WWE fight.
