Backlash Production Notes, Being the Elite Returns, New Cena Show
Monday, May 7, 2018
WWE's Backlash pay-per-view aired live from the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey last night. As promised, superstars from Raw and Smackdown were back on the same show for this event. Hours before last night's Backlash show began, a fan uploaded an image online showing some of the production notes for the show. The reported list shows the matches and the producers of those matches. This does appear to be a real list that was left on a production table before the show started as the match order is completely correct, including the unannounced segment with Elias which took place in the middle of the show last night. Check out the image down below:
Bullet Club fans were heartbroken after learning that the 100th episode of Being the Elite was set to be the final episode of the series. The Being the Elite YouTube series has risen in popularity after storylines involving members of the infamous New Japan Pro Wrestling faction were implemented into the show, but The Young Bucks recently teased ending the series after the 100th episode. The brothers later changed their minds on cancelling the show, and fans of the Bullet Club will be delighted to know that Being the Elite is not dead after all. Episode 101 of the series was uploaded to YouTube yesterday, and it looks like the show will continue to go on for several more episodes to come.
John Cena currently has a ton of programs lined up for him in Hollywood as he continues to step away from the ring. Cena continues to work as a role model for children as he has managed to become a major partner with the Nickelodeon network. He has also hosted the Kids Choice Awards for two years in a row, and it has just been revealed that Cena will be in a brand new series set to premiere later on this year as well. John Cena and Kat Dennings will star in the animated series Dallas and Robo, which sees Cena playing a robot who teams up with a human to take on a world filled with bold and exciting adventures. Look for the series on YouTube Red starting on May 30th.
