In an electrifying turn of events, WWE Backlash featured surprise appearances by wrestling legends Carlito and Savio Vega. Vega first appeared during a backstage segment with Bad Bunny and 2023 WWE Hall of Famer Rey Mysterio.
In a heartwarming moment, Vega presented Bunny with a custom kendo stick adorned with the Puerto Rican flag. Rey Mysterio and Vega then pumped up Bunny for his highly anticipated match against Damian Priest. The San Juan Street Fight later in the evening saw Bad Bunny claim victory over Damian Priest.
Commentators noted the significance of the match, as both competitors hailed from the same region in Puerto Rico. In an exciting development, Finn Balor and Dominik Mysterio emerged to support Priest, but Rey Mysterio intervened to save the day.
Despite Rey's efforts, he was outnumbered and subsequently triple-teamed.
Carlito's Explosive WWE Return
Carlito's music hit in a pulse-pounding moment, and the crowd erupted as he stormed the ring to an overwhelming ovation.
Carlito took out Balor and Dominik with lightning-fast moves, delivering a signature Backstabber to Balor. After tossing his shirt and taking a bite of his iconic apple, Carlito was momentarily caught off-guard by Dominik, only to send him reeling into position for Rey's devastating 619.
Carlito followed up by spitting his apple in Dominik's face, forcing him and Balor to retreat. The excitement escalated as Savio Vega's music blared, and he appeared to an even larger pop from the crowd. Balor and Dominik now found themselves trapped between Vega and Carlito and Rey on the other.
As the crowd chanted "Savio!" the music hit again, and Santos Escobar, Cruz Del Toro, and Joaquin Wilde came to join Vega. In a display of unity, they launched an assault on Balor and Dominik, with Carlito and Rey joining the fray.
Dominik suffered a brutal beatdown as Balor tried to escape, only to be attacked by Vega and taken down with his signature kick. Vega continued his onslaught by executing his signature moves on Dominik. The Latin World Order (LWO) and Carlito and Savio chased Dominik and Balor to the back, leaving the crowd in awe of the night's exciting events.
The WWE Backlash show was indeed a memorable event, with the stunning appearances of Carlito and Savio Vega proving that WWE still has the power to surprise and captivate audiences with unexpected twists and unforgettable moments.
