Renee Young’s Raw announcing debut was universally praised by people in the company and most fans. Michael Cole took to Twitter to express how proud he was of her work last night.
Words can not express how proud I am of @ReneeYoungWWE. What she accomplished last night is no easy feat. That chair is a tough one to sit in. She brought poise, professionalism, a refreshing view. Renee and @WWEGraves were a great team. Thanks for helping me feel young again

As we noted earlier, Vince McMahon was said to be happy with her work. In fact, in a WWE.com interview, Young said that she only heard from McMahon one time on the headset. Trust me, that is a good thing and a good sign that she will be brought back eventually.
Young actually has some experience at the announce table. She did commentary for NXT in 2013 and 2014 for the women’s matches before becoming a full-time commentator for a few months. Later, she served as the color commentator on WWE Superstars alongside Tom Phillips. It was the first time they had a full-time announcer on one of their main shows in over a decade. Things didn’t work out and Young was very green at the time but it was obvious that she was more comfortable in the role during Raw this week.
