A colossal announcement was recently made that prior to the Royal Rumble PPV Event on Sunday, January 31st, a special episode of WWE Backstage will air on Saturday, January 30th at 8PM ET on FS1. We will then see a replay air later that night at midnight and another replay at 5PM ET on Sunday, as a lead-in to the Royal Rumble Kickoff Show.
The Royal Rumble PPV special edition of WWE Backstage will be hosted by Renee Young (real name: Renee Paquette), Paige and WWE Hall of Famer Booker T. A video of Renee Paquette was also posted, where she announced the show. She said that she’s happy about this because she gets to see Paige and Booker T.
WWE Backstage aired from November 2019 up to mid-March of 2020, then the show was stopped due to the COVID-19 pandemic. A special edition of WWE Backstage was supposed to air on October 23rd, but it was nixed at the last minute and replaced with an episode of Talking Smack. There were then talks of this show airing special episodes on huge events and that is what seems to be happening.
