Renee Young recently spoke Scott Fishman of Channel Guide Magazine to promote the upcoming series premiere of Total Divas on the E! Network. During the interview, Young was asked about joining the show. Young explained that the Bella Twins have been great with incorporating her into the show and that she is very excited to join the cast. “It is a really cool opportunity for me. And it’s so different from what I normally get to do in WWE,” Young said.
Young added that when she first announced that she would be doing the show, she got some feedback from fans via Twitter and they were telling her that she doesn’t wrestle so why would she be on the show. “I feel like I have a pretty decent role within WWE with the stuff I get to do,” Young said. Young wants to show her part in WWE, which is being the host of her WWE Network show “Unfiltered” or being the host of WWE pre-shows or co-hosting Talking Smack. “So it’s nice for fans to see another element of what women get to do in WWE. And I think it’s a very pivotal role,” Young said.
When asked about her boyfriend, Dean Ambrose being hesitant to join Total Divas cast, Young said that at first he didn’t want to do it, but he warmed up to it, and he talked to Daniel Bryan, who is also on the show, about it, and it opened up his mind to do it. “I think it will be a nice little token for fans to take away,” Young said.
