They’re going. WWE runs several events a year and some of them are among the biggest wrestling cards anywhere. Getting to see one in person is a pretty rare treat as they only come to certain areas. It means a lot to have a show go somewhere else for the first time ever or even in a long time. That is what WWE is now planning to do for the first time in eighteen years.

WWE has announced that this year’s Backlash will take place on May 6 at the Coliseo de Puerto Rico Miguel Agrelot in San Juan, Puerto Rico. In addition, Bad Bunny will be serving as the show’s host. This will be the first time that WWE has run a Premium Live Event in Puerto Rico since New Year’s Revolution 2005. This also marks a return to the Backlash name, after the last two events were called WrestleMania Backlash.

WWE has a history with Puerto Rico. Check out some of the people and matches from the island:

Opinion: There is something very cool about seeing WWE expand like this. This is the first time they have been to Puerto Rico for a major show in almost twenty years and it is going to be a big deal for both the fans there and WWE as a whole. Throw in Money In The Bank taking place in the UK later in the year and it feels that WWE is trying some new things, which is long overdue.

What do you expect from the show? Where else should WWE take its shows? Let us know in the comments below.
