WWE Legend, Booker T recently spoke about WWE Backstage being dropped on his Hall of Fame podcast. Booker T worked at WWE Backstage as an analyst alongside other WWE stars, such as Ranee Young and Paige. He stated that it was fun working on the show: "I just want to first and foremost thank everybody on my FOX family crew [for] making that thing work for eight months," Booker T stated.
"It was an awesome eight months, and hopefully, now that the project is going to be different, it will be going to something digital. We don't know just 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 who made it possible for me to go out there to do what I love doing which is talking and having fun."

FOX recently stated that the show will be reworked and a few of the positions in production will be taken out. Booker T stated that the show is important as the general public gets to know more about what happens behind the scenes.
"More than anything, in a show like that, I think it's something that is needed," Booker T said. "That stuff I did last week with Bret Hart, man, it really touched me because I never knew that if Bret Hart had the chance to do it all over again, he would've said, 'Man, I'm staying here in the WWE.
I'm not going down there.' Stories like that, for people to hear up close and personal from someone like myself and Bret who was in the game, I thought it brought something different to the table. Again, everybody in the FOX family, they treated me right.
Hopefully, we'll be back on track real real soon and doing it again." Brad Gilmore who as on the show asked if there was anything that Booker T wanted to change in the show. "Of course I would've wished I did certain things differently," Booker T reflected.
"Of course "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. stories that need to be expounded upon as far as an inside perspective."
