Renee Young discusses working for a different company than her husband.
After leaving WWE at the end of April, Jon Moxley almost immediately jumped ship to All Elite Wrestling. Moxley, who had become creatively frustrated in WWE, is now one of the top stars in AEW. Meanwhile, his wife Renee Young just finished up a run as WWE Raw announcer and is currently hosting WWE Backstage on Fox Sports 1. Despite working for different promotions and competitors, Young and Moxley don't let it interfere in their personal lives.
"It's not weird at all," Renee said on the Sports Illustrated Media podcast. "As soon as we're both home and have a glass of wine, he has his Jack & Diet Coke and we just talk about wrestling. We talk about what my day is like, what his day is like. It's an interesting time for all of wrestling. I'm sure people would like to be flies on the wall of our room. There are some interesting conversations that have happened, that's for sure. When you're married to Jon Moxley, that man likes to talk about wrestling. Sometimes I need to cleanse my pallet like, 'Can we just put on 'This Is Us' and not talk about wrestling for a minute? That would be great.' He's a big 'This Is Us' fan. He is a layered man. There's much behind those crazy eyes."
Moxley is set for action this Saturday, Nov. 9 at AEW Full Gear when he faces Kenny Omega. Meanwhile, WWE Backstage premieres Tuesday, Nov. 5 on Fox Sports 1.
