Renee Young was officially promoted to the commentary desk last Monday, making her the first full-time female announcer in the WWE. Young’s move to the announce desk next to Michael Cole and Corey Graves was met with praise from the wrestling world.
In a recent interview with the Toronto Sun, Young credited some WWE higher-ups for giving her the chance to shine on Monday nights.
Michael Cole has been there from literally the get-go. He’s somebody that I’ve learned on many different times. He’s a great mentor, a great friend. Triple H is so open to new ideas and just seeing what people can bring to the table. He’s so great at helping people with the skill that they have and letting that flourish.
The same with Stephanie McMahon. She’s been so great for all of the women in WWE to set them up for success. Kevin Dunn as well. He always makes time for me no matter what’s going on.
