During the WWE Summerslam kick-off show, Renee Young confirmed she would be leaving WWE.
The news of Renee's departure was reported earlier in the week by Outkick. Renee had been with WWE since 2012, filling multiple roles including hosting, commentary, WWE digital, and more.
Following the news and confirmation of her departure, many in WWE took to social media to thank Renee for her contributions.
I am, as many others are, just hearing / reading the news that @ReneeYoungWWE will be pursuing other dreams outside of World Wrestling Entertainment. Besides changing her IG name, I can only imagine the plethora of projects running through this young lady's vivid imagination. Working with Renee has been an absolute pleasure. She always brought out the very best in everyone she worked with, and I am forever indebted to her for her on-screen generosity and trust. I look forward to whatever projects she chooses to grace with her passion and personality, and thank her for the opportunity to work with such a professional.

Sitting at a @WWE broadcast table for the 1st time could’ve been the most nervous I’d ever been.— Sam Roberts (@notsam) August 19, 2020
It wasn’t because @ReneeYoungWWE & @BookerT5x went out of their way to help me feel comfortable & at home. Everything with Renee has been like that. Can we still host Talking Smack? pic.twitter.com/4LKABqYLEC
If @ReneeYoungWWE is indeed leaving, it’s a big loss for @WWE— Mick Foley (@RealMickFoley) August 19, 2020
She is a woman of so many talents - smart, funny, hard-working, and a very comforting presence behind the
scenes. The sky is the limit for Renee - @espn @AEW
I can see her hosting #Today or #GMA
ALL THE BEST! https://t.co/HLq8o55veu

Will miss you friend
.@ReneeYoungWWE broke barriers for female voices. She taught me SO much about the broadcast booth and supported me. She brings out the best in everyone around her. But most of all, she is a friend I treasure. Thank you for everything Renee!— Betty Phoenix (@TheBethPhoenix) August 24, 2020

She’s obviously incredibly talented on screen but y’all have no idea what a sister she is behind the scenes. Thanks for always giving me an ear homie when no one would listen. https://t.co/L1H3ymyzFl— Mustafa Ali / Adeel Alam (@AliWWE) August 24, 2020
