• Former Employee Says She Always Felt Underutilized In WWE

On the latest edition of Sunday Night’s Main Event podcast, former WWE announcer Renee Young discussed her departure from WWE.

Below is what she said:

“I’ve been there for 8 years and I kinda did everything I could possibly do. I felt like I was bouncing around and continually trying to carve this path out for myself and I feel like I hit my ceiling.

My strength is being a TV host and as I’ve realized more and more that after doing commentary for a year plus, that was really rocky for me. I didn’t enjoy doing it and then not really having a solid role on SmackDown when I was listed as being a Special Contributor, whatever that’s supposed to mean. Then that never actually turned out to mean something.

I felt like they didn’t know what to do with me either. Just having me on TV and doing backstage interviews again felt like a step back and there was just nowhere for me to go. There was nothing for me to do anymore especially when Backstage got cancelled with FS1. I was really enjoying doing that and I’m gonna still be doing stuff with FOX going forward so that’s really cool.

I feel like I had checked all of the boxes and I turned over every card that I could there. I didn’t want to waste any more time. I’m about to turn 35 and I’ve done a bunch of stuff there so it’s time to move on. If I wanna keep growing and getting better and finding a bigger platform to be on, I felt like that wasn’t the place to do it anymore.

Not being a wrestling talent, I always sort of felt underutilized because of that. I was never meant to be the ‘talent talent’ and that’s always a bit of a tough pill to swallow when you take pride in your work and you know you’re good at what you do, but not getting those opportunities because I don’t wrestle.”
