WWE Backlash closed a chapter for the company because the real changes are set to begin tonight.
Ringside News has learned that nothing major changed on the show “in terms of something like a title was supposed to change but didn’t.” We were also told that, “there were slight changes to finishes that were discussed in advance, but nothing major changed.”
Furthermore, we were told by a source in the company that the real changes are set to begin today. The exact wording given to us was: “Today is the day when the real changes start.”
WWE is recording this week’s episode of Raw and SmackDown. This was also exclusively reported by Ringside News after incorrect reports came out saying that they already taped the post Backlash episodes.
Paul Heyman’s firing from WWE will go on to affect a lot of things throughout WWE. Fans will start seeing those changes soon enough. This week’s episode of Raw will be the start of that new chapter for the company.
