Renee Paquette Says She Would Try To Learn Talent Promos To Help Them If They Got Lost

Renee Paquette spent eight years in WWE, filling many roles during her time in the company.

Paquette (Renee Young in WWE) was perhaps best known for conducting interviews in the ring and backstage. WWE was notorious for scripted promos during her time as a backstage interviewer, and Paquette would do her best to ensure she was on the same page as the talent.

"I love what I get to do, and not that I don't think about it, I do, I think a lot about what I do and trying to do the best of my ability, but I also just get to have fun doing what I do. There is so much stuff of bringing stories forward, my big thing, especially when I'm doing interviews, it's one thing if I'm hpsting a kick-off show or post-show, that's more broadcasting, when I'm doing interviews, that's my role to make the wrestler feel as comfortable as possible," Paquette said in an interview with Vickie Guerrero on Excuse Me.

She continued, "That's something I take into consideration, making someone feel like I have their back and if someone stumbles on a line or whatever, if I need to give them a follow-up question, just in case, if we have time to fill, if I'm trying to keep them on track or steer them in a direction of what we know the story is going to be. Sometimes, that happens, there would be times where, if there was somebody I was going to do a promo with, in-ring or a live backstage, and they have a two-page promo, I'm like, 'there is a chance they get off-track and forget where they are.' I would try to learn their promo as much as I could in case I needed to give a follow up question to get them back on track for what they needed to get out. It's thinking on the spot, being prepared, and letting them know I can be there as a safety net."

Paquette now fills the role of backstage interviewer, and other roles, in AEW.
