The official premiere of WWE Backstage is Tuesday night at 11 pm eastern on Fox Sports 1 and it looks like they have a big show in store for the fans.
In the video below, Renee Young says there will be a taped segment with John Cena and Rob Gronkowski will check in. Gronkowski’s name has been rumored on-and-off about potentially wrestling in WWE. He has expressed interest in doing one match so it will be interesting if the subject comes up.
Young said the very first guest is “huge news” and it’s a “very big deal.” She added that the name of the guest will be revealed on Friday Night SmackDown.
Assuming that the guest is someone connected to the wrestling business, there are very few names that would qualify as being a “very big deal.” Vince McMahon would certainly be a big deal. Of course, the CM Punk rumors are out there. It’s worth noting that Punk has said in recent interviews that he has not heard back from FOX after trying out for the show so it doesn’t seem likely that he will be the big name appearing.
You can see a clip below of Young hyping WWE Backstage. The clip includes a cameo by Samoa Joe and Booker T.
