WWE Getting New Backstage Show On FS1

The new series begins on November 5.


Even before Smackdown moves to Fox, WWE is continuing to expand its brand on one of the company's networks with a new show called WWE Backstage.

Beginning on Tuesday, November 5 on FS1, Renee Young and Booker T will host this hour-long program where the two are joined by guests and talk about the biggest stories in WWE. They will be joined by WWE superstars and other personalities to discuss the world of sports entertainment.

“WWE Backstage is a wrestling show for wrestling fans. From hardcore fans to people new to wrestling, we’ll give them a little bit of everything,” Young said in a press release. “It’s going to be fun, it’s going to be loud, we’re going to give them a ton of opinions and I can’t wait to help spread the word about SmackDown coming to Fox.”

While the show won't be following any in-ring action with WWE, the weekly series, which airs at 8 PM PT / 11 PM ET, does sound a whole lot like the WWE Network series, Talking Smack, where Renee Young and Daniel Bryan discussed the events of each week's episode of Smackdown and interviewed WWE superstars.

That series ran for a year and a half and was a popular show on WWE's streaming service. It was cancelled in July 2017, but it gave WWE fans some amazing moments like the argument between Daniel Bryan and The Miz, which ended with Bryan walking off the set in a very real moment. Hopefully, WWE Backstage can capture that lightning in a bottle once again when it comes to FS1 on November 5.
