WWE has announced that the presenting sponsor for the highly anticipated Brock Lesnar vs. Cody Rhodes matches at tonight's WWE Backlash Premium Live Event will be the new Netflix series, FUBAR. The show, which stars WWE Hall of Famer Arnold Schwarzenegger in his first-ever leading role in a scripted live-action TV series, is a spy-adventure action-comedy set to premiere on Thursday, May 25, on Netflix.
Created by Nick Santora and produced by Skydance Television and Blackjack Films, FUBAR follows the story of Luke, played by Schwarzenegger, and his daughter Emma, played by Monica Barbaro. Both are CIA operatives who have been lying to each other for years, unaware of the other's true profession.
When they finally discover the truth, they realize they know little about each other and must work together to uncover a web of deceit.
FUBAR named sponsor for Lesnar vs. Rhodes match at Backlash
WWE's decision to name FUBAR as the presenting sponsor for the Lesnar vs.
Rhodes match is a testament to the star power of both the series and the wrestlers. The match has generated significant buzz among fans, as it marks the first time Lesnar and Rhodes have faced each other in a one-on-one encounter.
The stakes are high, and the addition of a presenting sponsor only adds to the excitement and anticipation of the event. It is still unknown whether the Lesnar vs. Rhodes match will be the main event of Backlash or if the San Juan Street Fight will take that spot, as previously reported.
However, fans can look forward to more updates throughout the evening and live coverage from the Viewing Party at 7 pm ET. In the meantime, fans can check out the FUBAR trailer below, the Lesnar vs. Rhodes poster, and a promo for the match.
With the combination of the star power of FUBAR and the electrifying energy of Lesnar and Rhodes, WWE Backlash is sure to be a night to remember for wrestling fans everywhere.
