Renee Young is no more a WWE employee. She can be said as the face of the company’s announcer team for a long time who pioneered the division. Being a popular face, she gradually became a brand of her own and found success like never before in the history of professional wrestling. Unfortunately, that stint has come to an end.
While speaking on the Sports Media podcast, the former WWE host cum announcer Renee Young talked about the departure. She revealed how she was able to leave the company within just two weeks by handing them a notice about it. It was supplied two weeks prior to SummerSlam when she made up his mind to leave WWE for some valid reasons.
Renee Young Says WWE Has 1-Year No-Compete Contract With Her
Below is what Renee Young had to say about her exit while mentioning it to be a really strange feeling,
“I wasn’t under a talent contract, I was an employee, so I only had to give a two-week notice for this job I was doing forever, it felt really bizarre.”
WWE promoted Renee Young from her host’s position in 2018 and made her an announcer. It was for the first time in WWE that a female name got to call out the actions from Monday Night Raw on a regular basis. Later, SmackDown moved to FOX and she went into a different role for the blue brand.
During the interview, Renee Young was asked about the length of her non-compete clause with WWE. She didn’t want to give an exact answer but surprisingly hinted that it’s could be intact for the next 1 year.
“Under a year? It’s in an around a neighbour of that area. Am I legally bound by anything by saying that?”
In general, departed WWE talents have a non-compete clause for 60 or 90 days whereas, for the former Total Divas star, it is way more. This indicates how valuable she was as an employee.
At this point, there are speculations everywhere about what could be next in her career being a famous journalist. In reply, Renee Young stated that she doesn’t plan on leaving the pro-wrestling business, completely.
“I have built up such a great resume, and a great fan base. All this knowledge about professional wrestling, for me to just fully abandon that and try a different career, and do something new seems a little foolish.”
With that being said, it’s still possible that she ends up being on the All Elite Wrestling promotion, sometimes down the road. In the meantime, Renee Young is still under contract with FOX as a wrestling analyst. So she can show up her face in WWE related programming if the broadcaster team wants.
