Renee Young left WWE at SummerSlam 2020 was technically her last day in the company as a host. She was still technically under contract with Fox Sports afterward but that deal also came to an end as the WWE Backstage show was canceled amid the COVID-19 pandemic. WWE had a 1-year non-compete contract with her but even after that was over, she didn’t arrive at any other wrestling promotion or other outlets.
Renee Young considers herself to be unemployed although she is enjoying this downtime, like never before. The former host with the real name, Renee Paquette worked hard at WWE for the past eight years, and now it’s time for her to have a break from the loaded schedule. While there might be plenty of offers waiting for her down the road, she’s happy to take a breather.
Moving on from her WWE career, Renee Young managed to focus herself on plenty of outside endeavors. She has her own podcast and a YouTube channel. Being a working mother, she also released her own cookbook. Recently, she got involved in another podcast co-hosted by former UFC fighter Miesha Tate. In the meantime, she is totally up for returning to the WWE, once again.
Renee Young open to having a discussion about WWE return
While speaking to NBC Sports Boston, Renee Young expressed her desire to return to WWE as a full-time worker but the company has to offer her the right “opportunity.” She has plenty of friends, there whom she misses on a daily basis. The same could be the scene with her husband Jon Moxley’s employer, AEW provided that they will also have to come up with the right offers.
“So, yeah, I think if the right opportunity came up, of course, I would be all ears and be interested in that. There is a big part of me that misses it, of course, I miss it, I miss my friends, I miss, there are certain things that I miss,” Renee Young admitted.
“I’m sure within a second of being back, I’d be like, oh my God, I’m back into this again. But no, I think I would be open to the conversation depending on what it is. It would have to be the right thing, it would have to be something new and fresh and with good people.” (quotes courtesy Wrestling INC)
Speculations were running high on what Renee Young may end up doing next following her WWE departure. Many believed that her AEW arrival was just a matter of time after her non-contract clause was over. But that wasn’t the case.
Since the former WWE Raw commentator never left the WWE on bad terms, there are still hopes that the pioneer wrestling journalist may just find out a way of coming back to the Vince McMahon-owned brand.
