The WWE made an announcement touting that backstage interviewer Renee Young is becoming WWE’s first full-time female commentator in more than a decade. Young will be joining Tom Phillips to broadcast WWE Superstars. Young was very appreciative of the honor.
“I feel there is definitely a certain amount of pressure, not only as a performer and broadcaster but representing women who may not even know this is something that they want to do,” Renee told WWE.com. “I can show other women that if you’re not a Diva and you still want to be involved in WWE, there’s so much you can do. It’s definitely really cool to be in the position to create a bit of a niche for myself and other women.”
WWE executive Triple H said that it was Young’s work ethic that got her the position.
“It has nothing to do with her being a female or not, it has to do with her being the right person for the job,” The Game said. “She’s got a great voice that cuts through the clutter. She is very knowledgeable about WWE, about its history, about the talent and she is really willing to step up and do her homework.”
