WWE BACKSTAGE: WWE Backstage returns during Royal Rumble weekend on FS1

Posted on 1/23/121 by Colin Vassallo

FOX Sports announced that WWE Backstage will be returning
with a special for the Royal Rumble, airing in prime time at
8PM on Saturday, January 30, on the eve of the Rumble.

Renee Paquette will return to anchor the show along with
Booker T and Paige. Paige has not done anything WWE-related
since Backstage stopped airing in June of last year. Despite
Renee leaving WWE, she still has a contract with FOX and WWE
Backstage is a FOX Sports production rather than a WWE one
so they can use whoever they want to a certain extent.

Backstage was set to return for one night in October when
Smackdown aired on FS1 but it was replaced by a live episode
of Talking Smack instead.

The FOX Sports announcement also showed that Backstage will
be replayed at Midnight ET and the next day at 5PM ET on
Royal Rumble Sunday.
