The WWE recently wrapped up the Crown Jewel event which was wrapped in controversy. With the murder of the journalist in Saudi Arabia, the non-involvement of women added salt to the injury. Although, in a surprising initiative, Renee Young was added for the commentary.
Speaking to BBC Radio along with Michael Cole, the former backstage interviewer opened upon her stint in the Middle East. Young claimed that the opportunity helped her to bring upon a change. She said:
“One thing I will say that was very cool about that—as well is being a woman welcomed into Saudi Arabia, to step into the announce booth and be part of the broadcast—is how many men, women, children coming up to me, knowing that this was a big moment of change and that there is a demand and need for women to be performing in Saudi Arabia. So, [the Saudi people] are asking for it, certainly.”
