WWE is repackaging a former Tag Team Champion with a Hall of Famer. Darren Young is being paired up with former WWE World Champion Bob Backlund in a storyline to “Make Darren Great Again.”
In a backstage segment taped on Tuesday night for this week’s SmackDown, Young asked the former World Champion to be his “life coach.” Backlund accepted, and gave him the “Make Darren Great Again” catch phrase based on Donald Trump’s slogan. This will be Backlund’s first appearance on WWE TV since April 2014.
Darren Young has been with WWE since the first season of NXT in 2010, where he was mentored by CM Punk. Young and Titus O’Neil won the WWE Tag Team Championships back in June of 2015 at Money In The Bank.
The segment with Backlund and Young will air on Thursday night on the USA Network.
