Bad Bunny impressed in a very entertaining San Juan Street Fight with Damian Priest at WWE Backlash.

Bunny received an incredible ovation as he made his way to the ring with a shopping cart full of weapons while the crowd sang along to his own song, ‘Chambea’.

Priest demonstrated his power advantage in the early going, which took place without plunder in the ring.

The tide began to turn when Priest was outside the ring, and Bunny hit a dive from the top rope. He then was able to use trash can lids and a Kendo stick to attack.

Priest appeared to wave the match off and attempted to make his way to the back, but it turned out to be a fake, as he counter-attacked Bunny first with a trash can and then a Kendo stick.

The pair then fought into the crowd, with Priest suplexing Bunny from the top of two stacked equipment cases.

At this point, Adam Pearce and others attempted to halt the match but Priest carried Bunny over his shoulder back to ringside.

A Damian Priest missed kick that struck the ring post evened things up, allowing Bad Bunny to capitalize by repeatedly going after the injured left leg.

Priest briefly got the upper hand again but a low blow felled him.

At this point, Finn Balor and Dominik Mysterio stormed the ring to help Priest. They were soon dispatched by Rey Mysterio and Carlito.

As Balor and Dominik tried to make their way to the back, Savio Vega came out to block their way. He was soon joined by the members of the LWO, who cleaned house as Savio hit Balor and Dominik with a series of chops.

Back in the ring, Bad Bunny did further damage to Priest’s leg with the Figure Four Leglock. A series of chair shots then scored Bunny the opportunity to win with a Destroyer and a pinfall, to another rapturous reception.
