Renee Young Becomes Full-Time WWE Raw Commentator; Coach Bumped to Pre-Shows

Posted by September 10, 2018 Comment

In the latest example of the WWE Women’s Evolution (TM), a movement celebrating WWE’s advancements in treating female performers with respect in order to correct the decades of mistreatment that were inflicted by… er… WWE, Renee Young has been promoted to full-time Monday Night Raw commentator, replacing Jonathan Coachman. WWE revealed the news in a press release on their website, writing:

Starting tonight, Renee Young will be the first woman to join the Raw broadcast booth full-time.

She will now bring her unique voice and perspective to the longest-running weekly episodic program in the U.S. as she joins Michael Cole and Corey Graves at the commentary desk. Renee joined WWE in 2012 and has served as a backstage interviewer and commentator on Raw, SmackDown LIVE and NXT. She is currently part of the Mae Young Classic commentary team on WWE Network.

In turn, Jonathan Coachman will take over as the new host of WWE’s pay-per-view kickoff shows. A veteran broadcaster with more than 20 years of experience hosting shows for WWE, ESPN, MSG Network and the Golf Channel, Coachman will bring his unique style to millions of viewers around the world on WWE Network, YouTube, Facebook, Twitter and WWE.com, as the host of WWE’s pay-per-view kickoff shows. Coachman will begin his new role this Sunday, Sept. 16 alongside WWE Hall of Famer Booker T, David Otunga, Sam Roberts and Peter Rosenberg prior to WWE’s Hell in a Cell pay-per-view event.

Coachman responded to the news on Twitter:

While Young posted:

And also responded to a tweet by Stephanie McMahon, who some people (such as Stephanie McMahon) say started the Women’s Evolution (TM).

As well as to Charlotte Flair:

Young’s first day as full-time commentator is tonight, so be sure to tune in!

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
