John Ourand of the Sports Business Journal tweeted this a short time ago:
FS1 is scaling back production on its boxing and WWE shoulder programming. "WWE Backstage will not longer be produced weekly. It is eliminating "Inside PBC." Double digit job losses as a result. SBJ Media will have the full story tonight.— John Ourand (@Ourand_SBJ) June 22, 2020
PW Insider has since reported that FOX had a meeting with everyone working on the show that WWE Backstage is “done in its current format for now.” However, they also say the belief is the show is done for good, with the chance it could return as a one-off.
WWE Backstage was the studio show Renee Young always dreamed of hosting, and she did a fantastic job in her role. The show never drew great ratings, however, and the coronavirus pandemic made studio shows like it nearly impossible to keep up with any sort of success.
This would also mean the end of CM Punk talking about WWE, at least for now.
