“WWE Backstage” will be pre-taped once a week through FOX, not WWE. That means Renee Young and Booker T will be working with the FOX production staff.
Cathy Kelley is expected to have a big role on “WWE Backstage” on FS1. She’ll be working for both FOX and WWE NXT.
Several WWE legends have been brought to Los Angeles to audition for the show. The idea is to try and feature different WWE personalities on a weekly basis. Rey Mysterio and Paige have both auditioned. They also both live in California, where the show will be taped. FOX has been toying with different versions and presentations, which included ranging from 3-5 different personalities. A final decision has yet to be made.
