Bad Bunny Set For WWE Return Match

Bad Bunny is one of the few celebrities to make the difficult adjustment of performing in a WWE ring. Recently, the WWE has had a string of good luck with their celebrity additions to the team. Logan Paul has been a phenomenal talent for the company. The YouTube star put on an excellent show for fans at this year's Royal Rumble and his match at Wrestlemania. Now it is official that Bunny will be making his return to the squared circle. The Latin hip-hop star even has his next opponent lined up.

The WWE will be running its special event, Backlash, next month in Puerto Rico. When the announcement was made that WWE was returning to Puerto Rico, fans were already assuming Bunny would be involved. A few weeks ago, it was announced that Bunny would be the guest host for the special event. However, his match had yet to be announced by the company. But this past Monday, fans finally got the news they were waiting for. Bunny has been involved in an on-screen storyline with WWE superstar Damian Priest. Although now it seems that the two will have a match at next month's special event.

Bad Bunny Set For WWE Street Fight

The match is being billed as a 'San Juan Street Fight.' A street fight in the WWE is basically a no-rules-style match. A match where weapons are legal and all but guarantee a lot of the action will happen outside of the ring. However, this past Monday on WWE's Monday Night Raw, Bunny teased his match with Priest. Fans were welcomed to see Bunny bring his own weapon to the ring to give them a little taste of his match at Backlash. During the segment, Bunny challenged Priest to a street fight.

Professional wrestling fans have always been leary of celebrities coming into their space. Consequently, on many occasions, fans can spot out if a celebrity really wants to be a part of the professional wrestling world. However, everyone notices just how invested Bunny is when he hits the screen. Will you be tuning in to see Bad Bunny back in action with the WWE?
