WWE Backstage viewership increases with Seth Rollins' debut
WWE Backstage on FS1 averaged 138,000 viewers this week, up 18,000 from the November 26th episode.
Seth Rollins' debut on the program was the focus of the show as Renee Young, Booker T, Christian, and Paige asked him about fan backlash, his presence on social media, and his thoughts on CM Punk.
Rollins focused most of the interview talking about the backlash he received from the WWE Universe and initially claimed not to understand why they turned on him before eventually concluding that hating the top guy was "the cool thing to do."
The show was also going to feature a promo school segment with Arrow and CW star Stephen Amell, but he was unable to appear after suffering a pinched nerve in his back.
Although the show increased their audience this week, its numbers are still down significantly from the preview episodes that aired in October.
CM Punk will return on next week's episode of WWE Backstage, marking his third appearance on the show since its launch earlier this fall.
