Former WWE star Danielle Moinet, known by her ring name Summer Rae, is embarking on a new venture as she joins BYB Extreme Bare Knuckle Fighting Series as an interviewer and social media correspondent.

Gregory Bloom, CEO of BYB Extreme Bare Knuckle Fighting Series, unveiled the signing of Moinet, highlighting her diverse background in professional wrestling, modeling, and sports coverage. Moinet’s multifaceted experience, coupled with her global fanbase and on-camera proficiency, positions her as a valuable asset in engaging with fight fans worldwide.

“BYB’s tremendous increase in popularity worldwide has confirmed the necessity to continuously connect with fight fans across the globe. Danielle’s on camera abilities, her experience in live sports, her global fanbase, and her ability to articulate the intricacies of nontraditional sports to a wide audience, is going to help us tell our story and showcase the personalities of our fighters both in and out of the Trigon.”

Expressing her enthusiasm for this opportunity, Moinet emphasized the meteoric rise of bare-knuckle fighting and its potential to become a mainstream combat sport.


“Having seen the explosion in popularity of bare knuckle over the past year and its exponential growth possibilities, I couldn’t be more excited to be a part of what I feel will be one of the most popular, mainstream combat genres in the near future. That feeling was even more prevalent when I had the opportunity to meet the full BYB team this month at BYB 24 in Biloxi. The professionalism and experience that BYB boasts – behind the scenes, in the booth and in the Trigon – is on par with anything I’ve seen in sports over the past decade, and I’m honored to become a part of it.”

Moinet’s debut appearance is slated for BYB 25 Brawl on the Bay in Tampa on April 4, followed by engagements in Philadelphia during Wrestlemania week. Fans can stay updated on BYB events and announcements by visiting and following @bybextreme on social media platforms.

While Moinet briefly returned to the ring for the 2022 women’s Royal Rumble, her focus has shifted in recent years following her full-time tenure in wrestling, paving the way for this exciting new chapter in her career.
