More on FOX Handling 'WWE Backstage'; AEW's Jim Ross Was Offered a Role


— As noted before, WWE Backstage is a venture that FOX is completely in charge of rather than WWE. The idea is for the show to be like UFC Tonight though it remains to be seen if wrestlers who appear on the show will be as openly critical of the promotion as their UFC counterparts.

— In an interesting note to show how FOX is running the show when it comes to WWE Backstage, the Wrestling Observer Newsletter reports that a spot on the show was offered to Jim Ross, who declined it for obvious reasons due to his ties to rival AEW.
