The show, which is set to debut on November 5, will air every Tuesday night at 11 pm ET and will look into the latest happenings around WWE. It will feature a panel of guests, including past and present WWE stars.
Young promises that the show will be "fun" and "loud."
“WWE Backstage is a wrestling show for wrestling fans. From hardcore fans to people new to wrestling, we’ll give them a little bit of everything,” she said. “It’s going to be fun, it’s going to be loud, we’re going to give them a ton of opinions and I can’t wait to help spread the word about SmackDown coming to FOX.”
“It’s awesome being part of the FOX family and part of this movement of Friday Night SmackDown to FOX,” Booker T added. “FOX Sports has always been the one-stop shop for sports and now it’s going to be the one-stop shop for sports and entertainment. I think this is going to be a tag team that’s going to last for a long time, and one that cannot lose. As I always say, now can you dig it, sucka?”
WWE has also announced that Young will be moving to SmackDown along with Michael Cole and Corey Graves, having confirmed an announce team reshuffle.
And, with SmackDown moving to Friday nights, WWE Backstage will give fans more content ahead of every show.
Young and Booker will reveal the set for the show during a special preview show on October 15 after Game 3 of the MLB American League Championship Series.
They're Extra Qualified
The pair seem like they would be perfect for this show. Young has lots of broadcasting experience and has served as a backstage interviewer and panel host, as well as in her well-known role as Raw commentator.
Booker, meanwhile, is a six-time world champion across WCW and WWE and is in the Hall of Fame as an individual competitor and as a member of Harlem Heat. The 54-year-old has experience as an announcer for both Raw and SmackDown, and as a member of WWE's pay-per-view pre-show panels.
