Renee Young left WWE after eight years in the company following SummerSlam in August.
During her time in WWE, Young fulfilled many roles including Raw commentary, backstage interviewer, and kick-off show host. But after eight years, she felt like she was spinning her wheels.
"I was talking to [Michael] Cole about everything, keeping him in the loop on how I was feeling, and he was taking those conversations and talking to Hunter, Vince, and Kevin Dunn, and letting them know. I wasn't under a talent contract at that point, I was an employee, so I only had to give two weeks notice. It was really a different situation. It was odd being like, 'here is my two weeks notice for this job I've been doing forever.' I didn't talk to -- I texted with Hunter and Steph, and I went and said bye to Vince and Kevin Dunn on my last day, other than that, I had no conversations with them up until my last day. Everyone knew where we were at and they understood. With my skillset, they just don't really have a thing for me to do right now. They respected where I was coming from," she said.
In a previous interview, Young said she pitched various ideas on how she could be utilized by WWE during this time, but felt like the ideas fell on deaf ears. You can find her full comments on the ideas she had by clicking here.
