What was originally planned for Bad Bunny’s match at the 2023 WWE Backlash PLE

Bad Bunny is scheduled to have a match against Damian Priest at this Saturday’s WWE Backlash PLE. According to Fightful Select, the original plan was for Bad Bunny to team up with Rey Mysterio against Priest and Dominik Mysterio in a tag team match. Fightful noted that plans changed when “both Bad Bunny and WWE were said to have felt comfortable with Bunny’s ability to have a good singles match instead.” The belief is that Bad Bunny would have pinned Dominik the tag match.

As of Thursday night, Bad Bunny is a heavy -2000 favorite against Priest who is at +700. Bad Bunny will be appearing on the May 5th 2023 edition of Smackdown in Puerto Rico.
