Renee Paquette was part of the WWE family for eight years until she parted ways with the company back in the Summer of 2020. She parted ways with the company after FOX’s WWE Backstage show was cancelled.
As seen on this week’s episode of AEW Dynamite, Renee Paquette made her shocking debut. Fans and pro wrestlers alike were glad to see the former WWE personality in AEW.
As fans know, she is married to AEW World Champion Jon Moxley, and they even have a daughter together. While speaking on The Sessions, Paquette discussed the possibility of working with Moxley. Paquette stated that she will only work with Moxley if it makes sense.
“We’ve never spoken about it, to be completely honest, it’s not something we’ve spoken about, but the way that I look at it and feel about it, at the risk of sounding super cheesy, he has built something so special and so authentic and great with what he does. He is in such a great groove. He’s the best.
“What he’s been able to do within his time in AEW, the stuff he does on the indies, the stuff he decides to do, he’s in this pocket and I never want to do anything to distract from that or get my own s**t in there with what he’s doing. I don’t want to be that person who is like, ‘Me too. Don’t forget about me. That’s my husband.’ I think that’s obnoxious as all hell.
“If there was a thing, of course I’m not going to pretend that I’m not married to the guy or act like I don’t know him. That’s dumb. In terms of positioning myself or making an awareness, ‘That’s my husband, there’s Jon Moxley’s wife.’ I don’t think anyone needs that. Jon has such a loner, lone wolf vibe about him, to be like, ‘the cheery happy girl is his wife,’ it’s a weird juxtaposition that I don’t know that works on camera.”
“We’ve been able to coexist in the wrestling world because…how annoying would it be, say we were doing a segment together and I mess something up or I missed my cue, anything like that. Then you have to talk about it. Us having our own separate roles, we never step on each other’s toes, we both have an immense amount of respect for what the other does.
“Those things don’t need to intertwine. It’s wrestling, if there is ever a moment that it does make sense and something like that does happen, cool. I’m not saying I’m against it, I just don’t think it’s something that ever needs to be forced or harped on.”
The news of Renee Paquette signing with AEW was officially confirmed by Tony Khan on Twitter. We will have to wait and see how she will be used in AEW.
