Since making her WWE television debut on March 29, 2012, Renee Young has quickly proved herself to be a natural for all aspects of WWE broadcasting. Arguably assimilating to the wild world of WWE faster than any broadcaster before her. A lifelong WWE fan, the lovely broadcast personality came to the squared circle after working with “The Score” network in Canada for several years, building her reputation by co-hosting WWE Aftermath and interviewing high-caliber talent such as The Rolling Stones on other programming. Young's professional, magnetic and sometimes comedic personality shines through as an interviewer on TV and the WWE app, a contributor on "The JBL and Cole Show" and even breaking down gender barriers as a color commentator on WWE NXT and "WWE Superstars" which can both be seen on WWE Network and internationally on television.Hide the rest
