Brian Kendrick has addressed reports of him working as a producer at Saturday night’s WWE Backlash 2023 pay-per-view event.

After getting his WWE release, he was supposed to make his AEW debut last year, but that was nixed after clips of the anti-Semitic comments he made years ago resurfaced. Kendrick worked as a producer for WWE at Survivor Series last November after Ronda Rousey asked for Kendrick to be used for her match at the show.


Kendrick worked alongside Jamie Noble to produce the San Juan Street Fight between Bad Bunny and Damian Priest.

On the latest edition of the Hitting The Turnbuckle podcast, Kendrick explained that he was brought in because of the chemistry he had when helping Bunny during his first WWE match at WrestleMania 37.

“It was for the Bad Bunny and Damian Priest match. The company brought me in, but it was because a few years back when they had their tag match, I worked with them. I think because of the comfort level we had built with Bunny and I, they requested me to come back for that.”

“Yeah, I haven’t met Logan but I think both of them are very motivated. They want to be good at this. I know Bunny put in a lot of training, he was training for months. I thought the match was awesome.”
