Renee Young finished up her time in WWE on Sunday concluding with SummerSlam.
Young spent eight years in WWE, doing various gigs including working as a backstage interviewer, hosting panels and segments, hosting WWE Backstage, and more. Young worked closely with Booker T on WWE Backstage and on WWE television
Speaking on his Hall of Fame radio show, Booker commented on Renee leaving WWE.
"She's special. She's not gonna have to worry about a check coming in the mail. When you're talented and good at something, you enhance it. She's been working on her game for many years and she knows what she brings to the table. Anybody that snatches Renee Young up, they are gonna be lucky to have her on their team because she is a team player," he said.
Recalling the first time he worked with Renee, Booker said, "The first time Renee and I got to do something together, it was in New Orleans. I don't remember stuff unless it means something to me. I don't remember dates or that kind of stuff unless it hits my heart. We were doing a WrestleMania party, we had no script. Renee picked up the mic and started rolling. Every time she would say something, I would just echo it. We realized we had such chemistry and she was still trying to learn. She would call me and say, 'Book, how do I handle this?' She would do it, call me back and just say thank you. She was one of a kind as far as being part of my life in the company. Hopefully, we have more time together. She deserves everything she gets in this lifetime. She's bigger than a backstage interviewer, she's a front person. Someone that needs her own show and can create her own brand. When you got someone like that, you want to keep them on the team, but sometimes you have to take yourself and put yourself in a position to make that happen. Someone is always gonna be knocking at the door. When you're good at what you do, somebody is always gonna be knocking."
WWE doesn't have a long history of inducting broadcaster announcers into the Hall of Fame, but Booker believes Renee will take her spot in the WWE Hall of Fame before it's all said and done.
"Renee has the capability of building herself so big outside of the wrestling world that they are gonna want to welcome her back one day just to give her that honor to walk on that stage. Being the first woman...groundbreaking, tearing down walls in this business, one day she definitely has a huge chance to make that walk," he said.
It is unknown what Renee will do next in her career, but she is set to release a cookbook at some point in the near future.
