Next week, the Nightmare comes to WWE Backstage!

NXT Women’s Champion, Rhea Ripley, joins the show as the special guest, and CM Punk is back again! What will they both have to say about Rhea’s coming title defense against Charlotte Flair and the rise of NXT as WWE’s third brand?

The WWE Universe comes to the rescue!

Mick Foley needed some help getting their car to a gas station, and it was some very excited fans that helped push the Foley Mobile the rest of the way! Tommy Palica has video of his friends taking selfie video with Foley.

Booker teases Foley for running out of gas in the first place. But does he have any odd or appreciated fan moments? Being on the road, one time he got pulled over, and the officer realized who Booker was and totally let him go. Styles remembers that moment, because he was behind Booker and also got pulled over. Officer didn’t let Styles go! Well Styles was still working on becoming a Hall of Fame WWE champion. Woods can’t remember one so he lets Ember go next. Hers is from PAX when fans made her a Dungeons & Dragons character, as Ember Moon. She plays D&D with that character all the time, she loves it. Woods had the same thing, sorta.

Curtis Axel tweets the show!

In reference to how Styles and Renee greeted each other tonight: “Wow! I have the same handshake with my boys at home!” Thumbs up and surprised face emoji. Is he teasing them? They do it again to show how good they are at it. Renee actually left a mark. She apologizes while also saying bye on behalf of the panel.



My Thoughts:

Another really fun episode of Backstage! Styles is such a great guy in real-life, and him showing some of his real personality was great. It’s obviously becoming more well-known knowledge that Styles is as much of a gamer as he is an athlete, and seeing glimpses of his collection was incredible. Gold cartridge Punch Out!! It also means a lot for Styles to say that, despite what we’re seeing and thinking and talking about in regards to Cedric Alexander and Ricochet, he has confidence those guys and others are going to be back on top as WWE moves forward. Because honestly, they should.


In a roundabout way, Ember’s line about making new sacred things puts a great headline on the argument many have had about WWE making new stars. That way, the WWE can still be around for us to have the same nostalgia we have for Taker, but for people like Styles, Alexander, Ricochet, etc. At the same time, we fans need to slow down and realize that a few weeks or even a few months of “Oh no! Vince isn’t pushing them! They’re buried!!” won’t even be remembered once they and superstars in similar positions (and there’s a lot of them) have had their moments. One day, we’ll look back on Ricochet, Shayna, and who knows who else like we do HHH, HBK and Taker in that End of an Era match. Just hopefully without the baggage of them coming back again and somewhat tarnishing their legacies.
