WWE correspondent, Renee Young, is joining the RAW announce team. She replaces Jonathan Coachman. She joins Michael Cole and Corey Graves for the Monday Night announce team.
Young is the first woman to ever be featured as one of the WWE commentators. Coachman moves to hosting Pay-Per-View kick-off shows. Coachman will also be using this time to focus more on his other commentating duties. Coachman has been a host and commentator on ESPN.
Young, 32, has been with WWE since 2012. She began her career doing backstage interviews and has increasingly become part of the WWE fabric. Her role has since expanded to hosting shows on the WWE Network and the pay-per-view kickoffs in addition to interviews.
“I am so so so insanely excited about this! To be the first woman to take over that chair that so many amazingly talented voices and personalities have sat in before me! Thank you to @VinceMcMahon @StephMcMahon @TripleH @MichaelCole and @WWEGraves (and MANY others),” Young said on Twitter.
Young’s move to the broadcast team also comes before WWE holds its first all-women’s pay-per-view, Evolution, on October 28.
