WWE Backlash 2023 is set to be an exciting event for wrestling fans. The pay-per-view will take place on Saturday, May 6, 2023, at the Coliseo de Puerto Rico José Miguel Agrelot in San Juan, Puerto Rico. This event marks WWE’s return to Puerto Rico after a long time, with the last major event in the country held in 2005.
The event will feature wrestlers from Raw and SmackDown, with a dream match between Cody Rhodes and Brock Lesnar headlining the event. In this blog post, we will preview the full match card, give our predictions, and inform you of how and where to watch WWE Backlash 2023 live.
Cody Rhodes vs Brock Lesnar WWE Backlash 2023
One of the most anticipated matches of WWE Backlash 2023 is the first-time meeting between Cody Rhodes and Brock Lesnar. Rhodes, a former undisputed WWE universal champion, lost his title to Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 39. During a tag team match against Reigns and Solo Sikoa on the first Raw after WrestleMania, he was betrayed by Lesnar.
This match has been billed as a clash of styles and generations. Rhodes is a versatile performer who can adapt to any opponent or situation. He is also a fan favorite who has earned respect and admiration from his peers and fans alike. Lesnar is a powerhouse who relies on his strength and speed to dominate his opponents.
Who will win this epic confrontation? Will Rhodes get his revenge on Lesnar for costing him his title? Or will Lesnar prove that he is still the beast incarnate of WWE? Our prediction is that Lesnar will emerge victorious after a brutal and hard-fought battle. Rhodes will put up a valiant effort, but Lesnar’s size, power, and experience will give him the edge. Lesnar will also have Heyman in his corner, who could interfere or distract Rhodes at any moment.
WWE Backlash 2023 Bad Bunny vs Damian Priest
Another match that has generated a lot of buzz is the San Juan Street Fight between Bad Bunny and Damian Priest. Bad Bunny, a Grammy Award-winning rapper and WWE fan, was originally announced as the host of Backlash in his home of Puerto Rico. But after Priest accused him of stealing his spotlight, Bad Bunny accepted a challenge to a match.
Who will win this street fight? Will Bad Bunny prove that he is more than just a celebrity guest? Or will Priest show that he is the superior wrestler and performer? Our prediction is that Bad Bunny will pull off another upset victory over Priest. Bad Bunny has shown that he has passion, charisma, and skills in the ring.
He also has the home field advantage, as he will have the support of the Puerto Rican crowd. Priest will underestimate Bad Bunny’s abilities and make a costly mistake.
