Renee Young evaluates herself honestly on Twitter.
The former TV host turned WWE Raw announcer has been full-time in the commentary booth for less than a year. On Sunday, she took to Twitter to address detractors about her performance in the role thus far.
Here’s the truth. I know im not great on commentary, but it’s my job. I try to get better each week. People love to tell me how bad I am at it as if I think I’m great at it. So I should just quit? What would that say about me?Not easy to learn a skill on a gigantic global tv show— Renee Young (@ReneeYoungWWE) July 28, 2019
Well a lot of people say that but don’t realize that Talking Smack and raw commentary are completely different jobs. I’m a tv host and have been for a decade- so talking smack was my jam- commentary’s entirely different. Different skills.— Renee Young (@ReneeYoungWWE) July 28, 2019
Several wrestlers and personalities, both in WWE and outside of it, rushed to defend Renee.
People don’t appreciate how hard that job is. I’ve done it a couple times. I’m 1000X worse at it than you are.— Lance Storm (@LanceStorm) July 28, 2019
