For the first time in main roster history, a woman will be a commentator on one of the main shows. Renee Young is that woman. She’ll be taking Jonathan Coachman’s place this coming Monday evening.
“I believe this is the first time ever that we have had a woman in the booth for an entire episode of Monday Night RAW,” Cole said in an interview with ESPN.
“When Michael told me, I was like, ‘This Monday?! What are you talking about?!’,” Young said. “I am so excited for this opportunity. To be sitting with Cole, who has been such a great champion of mine since I’ve been working for WWE, it’s going to be really cool.”
“Renee has broken barriers all over the place.” Cole said. “She’s reaching out and doing things that would have never been dreamed of 10 years ago.”
Botch Take: This is incredible! We were just talking about how we’d love to see her on commentary…and we’re going to get our wish. I’m so excited for her. Way to go, Renee!
