Renee Young talks about commentary job being stressful
Submitted by Aaron Rift on 11/03/2019 at 12:48 PM


During an interview with SI.com, Renee Young discussed her time as a color commentator for WWE RAW:

"I never felt comfortable doing that job," Young revealed on the SI Media podcast. "It was a very stressful year, to be completely honest. I'm here in WWE and the first female to come into [the backstage] role. I needed something else to chew on. Michael Cole and Triple H pulled me aside and said, 'You're going to do commentary on Raw.' I was like, 'What? Why? Who approved this?' But, like with anything, I was gonna try to figure it out. To go out there and call three hours of wrestling, coming from my role backstage, I like to have more of a bubbly personality and that was what fans have been drawn to. Or my sarcastic side. It's hard to do that on commentary, especially when you've got [Corey Graves], who is great at that. But also stepping in there as a third person. I'm used to being the A person. I'm trying to jump in there and everything has kinda already been said. It was odd. I tried to come at it from a fan standpoint, but that doesn't always work. I felt misdirection about what my purpose was when I was out there."

Renee continued, "It was a cool feather to put in my cap. I'm not one to back away from something. I wanted it to be a thing to work and I wanted to excel at that. Not being good at something is a tough pill to swallow for me. It just wasn't really working."
