New WWE Announcer Renee Young Gives Major Credit to Michael Cole and More

– New WWE announcer Renee Young discussed which talent has been most helpful to her since she joined WWE, during an interview with Gerry Strauss of The Layfield Report.

“Someone that has been really helpful to me would definitely be Michael Cole. He is very honest and great to bounce ideas off of. He is really a great guy that’s been such a backbone for WWE’s broadcast team for a long time, so he is usually the man with the answers and ideas for me. Also, Tony Dawson and I were hired roughly around the same time and he’s been a great support system too. And, of course, Matt Striker and Scott Stamford… those guys are both so good at what they do and I always grow a little bit each time I work with them. Very quick and witty, those two gems are. But so many of the producers and management at WWE have been amazing, a lot of really great people there.

The most helpful thing I’ve learned, and this is dating back to before I even started at WWE, but it’s being able to trust myself and have fun. I work in the business of entertainment. If I’m having fun, it’s easier for people watching to have fun too.”

    Michael Cole faced a very uphill battle when he was picked to replace JR. Having him as a heel didn’t make it any easier. But, objectively, I have to say he’s endured and appears to be a very valuable member of the production and broadcast team. So I guess I have to respect that.
