Cena, Gronkowski to appear on WWE Backstage official premiere


When WWE Backstage makes its official debut on November 5, John Cena will be one of the guests on the episode.

On last night's special edition of Backstage, it was announced that Cena and former New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski will be guests on the show's official premiere. Backstage will air weekly on FS1 at 11 p.m. Eastern time on Tuesdays starting on November 5.

There have been two episodes of Backstage prior to the official start of the studio show. A preview show aired after an MLB playoff game on October 15 and last night's special episode aired after SmackDown.

Paige and Christian have joined hosts Renee Young and Booker T for the first two episodes.

Cena last appeared on WWE television as part of Raw Reunion in July. He also took part in a segment with Elias at WrestleMania 35.

Gronkowski retired from the NFL after the end of last season. He recently joined FOX's NFL coverage as an analyst.

Gronkowski is friends with WWE's Mojo Rawley and appeared during the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal at WrestleMania 33.
