WWE Hall of Famer Booker To discussed the recent changes made to WWE Backstage on the latest episode of his Hall of Fame podcast. Booker, who served as an analyst on the FS1 show, talks what he wishes they could have done differently, and hopes they could get the show back on track now that it won't be a weekly televised program. Highlights are below.
On the changes made to the program:
We got the news that we're not going to be shooting a weekly series, not right now anyway. I want to think everybody on the Fox family crew and making it work for eight months. Hopefully, the project will be a little different and going to something digital, we don't know just yet. A show like that is something needed to be able to deliver that side of insight. The show last week that I did with Bret Hart really touched me. I never knew that if Bret Hart had a chance to do it all over again, he would have said, 'I'm staying in WWE.' Stories like that for people to hear, it brought something different to the table. Hopefully, we'll be back on track soon and doing it again.
How he wishes they could have covered stories outside of WWE:
I wish we could have done things differently at certain times, but some things I wouldn't change at all, like all those suckas I ripped in promo school. I always thought about The View and that format and how they talked about a little bit of everything. To be able to talk about Independent wrestling groups, for instance, NWA, EVOLVE, to talk about how those groups might be no more, that's news. These are stories that are prevalent in professional wrestling and stories that need to be captured.
