Newly-promoted WWE Raw commentator Renee Young spoke to The Toronto Sun to talk about her career with the company. Young talked about being promoted to the Raw commentary team full-time and who she credits with helping her rise within the company. Here are the highlights:
Being promoted to the Raw commentary team:
“For me, I’m Renee Paquette from Toronto, Ontario, Canada,” Renee said. “Now I have this really cool opportunity. My life has changed so much over the last six years with WWE and to have this opportunity in front of me … I just want to do the best job that I can do.”
Who she credits with helping her in her WWE rise:
“Michael Cole has been there from literally the get-go,” Young said. “He’s somebody that I’ve leaned on many different times. He’s a great mentor, a great friend. Triple H is so open to new ideas and just seeing what people can bring to the table. He’s so great at helping people with the skill that they have and letting that flourish.
“The same with Stephanie McMahon. She’s been so great for all of the women in WWE to set them up for success. Kevin Dunn as well. He always makes time for me no matter what’s going on.”
