WWE Backstage will be a studio news show ran by FOX. This is the reason why they are discussing bringing in CM Punk. Apparently, FOX had a very bold idea for their new show, but it didn’t work out.

The Wrestling Observer Newsletter noted that Jim Ross was offered a spot on WWE Backstage. It was said that this is a definite illustration to show how much of the show is actually operated under WWE’s auspices.

To show how much it’s a FOX call, Jim Ross was offered a spot on the show. Ross turned it down, for obvious reasons, but the fact he’d get an offer was telling.

WWE Backstage could be a must-see for WWE fans. Taz also reportedly auditioned for a role on the show so they are looking heavily into bringing some people into the picture that might really be able to take some deep dives into WWE news.

I love pro wrestling and hate BS. These two things drive me. Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News. Worked in finance before realizing pro wrestling journalism made much less sense. Pro beachballs at pro wrestling shows, pro dives if someone catches, anti bullies, olives, and pineapples on pizza.
