WWE has announced that broadcaster Renee Young will be joining the Monday Night Raw commentary team on a full-time basis from now on.
Renee is set to make history by becoming the first ever full-time female commentator in WWE history and will replace Jonathan Coachman and will join Corey Graves and Michael Cole on a weekly basis.
Renee has been on the commentary table replacing The Coach several times recently and is part of the team for the Mae Young Classic alongside Cole and Beth Phoenix. It is unknown at this time whether she will continue in her other positions backstage on SmackDown Live and hosting the pre-show panels for PPV’s.
Several people have already jumped to social media to congratulate Renee, with Bayley claiming that it is deserved and Liv Morgan stating that it’s awesome.
SO DESERVED! This is so cool. She’s so cool. 😬 https://t.co/TNQneEgHEa
