Renee Paquette worked in WWE for eight years, where she first started out as a backstage interviewer. When Paquette joined WWE, she was not up-to-date on the world of professional wrestling at that time.

While speaking to Chris Van Vliet, the former Renee Young talked about her first interview with John Cena. She revealed that messed up that interview with Cena.

Paquette had no idea how important John Cena truly was during that time. Paquette revealed that she tried too hard to make the interview all about herself and did not put over other talents.

Paquette added that John Cena was very gracious and sweet with her despite that.

“No, I wasn’t. My first interview with them was with John Cena. At that time, I did not understand what that gravity meant. At the time, Brooke Hogan was doing her music career or reality show. So, I was going to talk to him about that,” recalled Renee. “I remember standing on our marks. They were counting down the PR guy who was with Cena at the time and they’re like, ‘We’re actually not going to do this interview.’ I was trying too hard to make the segments about myself instead of trying to put over the talent, but I remember Cena was being very gracious and sweet.

“He was like, ‘The world is going to know in moments.’ I had just gotten out of the shower and my phone just starts blowing up. So, it took the pressure off of me having to figure out some cute little way to do it. I actually loved that it came from him. It was easy.”

Paquette is currently expecting her first child with Jon Moxley.
