Renee Young was the first female to sit in a full-time announcer position on Monday Night RAW. She didn’t last too long, but she kept trying the whole time.
Young previously spoke about her experience. She was literally thrown in without any time to grind at the WWE Performance Center and hone her craft. While speaking to After The Bell, she had a lot to talk about with Corey Graves.
Young admitted that she’s surprised that she never got yelled at over things she said on the air. She called Baron Corbin and Corey Graves an “asshole” on the air before, but Vince McMahon apparently didn’t bat an eye.
“Honestly, I can’t believe that I never said something that got me in insane amounts of trouble. I called you a [swear word], and I called Corbin a [swear word], but no one said anything.”
WWE has a certain way that they like things said on television. Renee Young admitted that she went out of her way to avoid using those WWE keywords in her everyday life. It’s even why she started her Regular Girls podcast which she had for a while.
“Yes, I want to say for years I’m not doing it. I’m not getting into the vernacular. That’s one of the reasons I started doing my old podcast, ‘Regular Girls.’ I need to do something with somebody from outside of wrestling so that I don’t get into these speech patterns.”
Young also teased that a big announcement is coming on Wednesday. She confirmed that she’s not moving back to Canada, she hasn’t recovered from COVID-19 yet, and she’s not pregnant. We’ll have to see what Renee Young’s big announcement is, but it likely won’t involve her using too much WWE vernacular.
