Renee Paquette, former WWE announcer Renee Young, left WWE after SummerSlam, but she doesn’t seem to miss the company much. She still has friends who work there, but their policy to take away outside work from stars is not something she misses at all.
We previously covered how CM Punk talked about how WWE “funneled” projects to John Cena as they took them away from other stars. Renee Young had a similar story as she vented on her Oral Sessions podcast.
“That’s so infuriating like I’ve had so many people say things like that to me since I left, too. Like ‘oh we pitched this for you we wanted you to host a f*cking cooling show with wrestlers,’ I’m like ‘yeah no sh*t that would be great.'”
“Nope, they didn’t give it to me. They’re giving it to Bo Dallas. I love Bo Dallas, like go get it, do what you have to do, but f*ck, like I could never catch a break. Like, I couldn’t get anything done. I couldn’t even get a podcast off the ground. Like, give me a f*cking podcast. Nobody gives a sh*t about that, but still nope, you can’t do it. No dice.”
Renee Young is now on her own, and she can pick her projects without WWE taking them away from her. She has a cookbook that was released without the company’s assistance, and there could be many more opportunities on the way. She might even get that cooking show eventually, no thanks to WWE.
