Renee Young is joining Corey Graves and Michael Cole on Monday.
Renee Young has been a backstage interviewer for WWE and also hosted the popular Talking Smack post-show on the WWE Network. Now she will be a guest commentator on Monday's episode Raw as she replaces Johnathan Coachman who has other obligations.
In an interview with ESPN, Michael Cole said he believes WWE has not had a female commentator for an entire episode of Raw. Renee Young told ESPN how she couldn't believe her ears when she heard about the opportunity.
"When Michael told me, I was like, 'This Monday?! What are you talking about?!,' 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," said Young.
WWE announced Renee Young being on commentary via Twitter.
