It was recently revealed that Fox Network has made the decision to scale back on WWE related programming and as a result, WWE Backstage will no longer be produced as a weekly series.
Booker T, who was one of the regulars of the show recently talked about the cancellation of the program on the latest episode of his Hall Of Fame podcast.
The former World Champion said that first and foremost he would like to thank everybody who was on the crew and hoped that the show could live on in a different format:
“First and foremost, I want to thank everybody on my crew, my FOX family crew for making that thing work for eight months. I think we did it, and it was an awesome eight months, and hopefully, now the project is gonna be a little different, hopefully it’ll be going to something digital, we don’t know yet, we’re just waiting in a holding pattern right now, but I just want to thank everybody who had something to do with that show and everybody that made it possible for me to actually go out there and do what I love which is just talking and having fun, more than anything.”
Booker T then admitted that he does wish that he could have done things a little bit different at certain times before saying that there were also things he wouldn’t change at all:
“Of course I wish we could have done things a little bit differently at certain times, and some things I wouldn’t change at all, like all those suckers I ripped up in promo school. I’m not gonna miss any of that right there, I wouldn’t have changed any of that part of the show, but ya know, I always thought about the view and the format of the view and how those guys on the view pretty much talked about everything, and hopefully it’s a show that can spawn off to a show like that because I always say, to be able to talk about a little bit of everything, to be able to talk about every one of these independent wrestling groups that are out there right now.”
