Renee Young announced as full-time member of the RAW Commentary Team

Renee Young is set to take a new road in her journey with the WWE. The company announced that Young will join the announcer’s desk on a full-time basis on the red brand alongside Micheal Cole and Corey Greaves beginning with the upcoming edition of RAW in New Orleans.

Young, who will be replacing Jonathan Coachman, was initially tried out as a temporary figure in the commentator’s table filling in for the Coach, a couple of times in the recent past.

Coachman is set to take up a new role as a pre-show host for the pay-per-views alongside Sam Roberts, David Otunga, Booker T and Peter Rosenburg.

Check out the WWE’s statement regarding the same.

Renee Young joins Raw announce team full-time

Starting tonight, Renee Young will be the first woman to join the Raw broadcast booth full-time.

She will now bring her unique voice and perspective to the longest-running weekly episodic program in the U.S. as she joins Michael Cole and Corey Graves at the commentary desk.

    Would someone please remind Renee that she is white and never spent one day in the ghetto. I don’t need her to be saying things like “ooooh snap!” or whatever line she used that totally sounded like it had been scripted for Booker or Coach.

    The comedy of all the butt hurt fans on WWE social media who cannot handle a woman being given a role they think a man should have. All the while the pro-Young fans were calling for her to be made up to commentary team they kept quiet as the probably thought “nah, Vince will never do it. He is as behind the times as us”, but as soon as it is announced, they lose their tiny backwards minds.

    Young deserves it, and will grow into the role. She is already better than a lot of people who have sat behind the table.

  • Mike the Ike

    Could someone please teach Renee how to dress properly? The outfits she wears are horrid.

  • Whistling Joe

    They need to replace Cole with Mauro and put Renee on Smackdown to replace Slender Man.

  • Evilllll

    Thank Funaki. Coachman had to go. You could tell Graves and Cole were sick of him, too.

  • Nicholas Giambattista

    She done a better job then the last two.

  • Rob ‘Richard Hammond’ Picken

    I’m fine with her being there, but for the love of god they should have gotten her to take Coles spot instead

  • oppa

    This is real. The only issue I have with it is that Stephanie tweeted #evolution when congratulating her. I may be making a bigger deal out of this that is needed, but that doesn’t sit well with me.


    Is this sum stupid joke WWE is playing to troll fans ? This is a bigger joke then Roman Rains as universal champion.
