Weren't they also dropped from Total Divas? Someone is really making her feel low with doing all this crap haha....but yeah if she wasn't told face to face about Talking Smack, what a shitty move.

I think she's great and underused but I have no problem if she's been taken off Total Divas because her relationship with Dean was barely touched upon anyway.

It's a shame about Talking Smack. I watch it every week as one of the best things on the Network.

I can see her running down her contract so she can see her husband more and report on real sports like she used to do.

I think I would have preferred to have Young on SmackDown. I actually liked her on Raw commentary, but I think Cole, Coach, and Corey are a fantastic team and shouldn't be broken up. I know it was just a one night thing, but the more Renee Young the better... On SmackDown.

She did great and should be a permanent replacement for Coach and his annoying word of the hour or Graves having to correct his stupidity all the time.
 
They mentioned her being on commentary at the start of the show and correctly didn't make a big deal of it so it felt more normal and less of a big deal Thumbs Up
 
She fit in well, wasn't shouty and didn't talk over the other two. It went better than anyone could have wished.

That was a good thing. Too often commentators are too loud or squable, which takes away from what's happening in the ring. Actions speak louder than words and only speak if you've something worth saying that will add value to what we at home are watching.

You can tell on the second video how delighted she was that her husband returned from nine months out, on the same broadcast.

Credit again to E for not making a huge deal of this by mentioning a million times how it's the first time in quarter of a century a woman has commentated on a full Raw, which made it more natural instead of a so what moment.

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.

As noted, WWE announced on Monday morning that Renee Young will be joining the RAW announce team full-time every Monday night, and that Jonathan Coachman has been named the new host of the WWE pay-per-view Kickoff Shows.

Following the announcement, Renee Young took to social media to comment on being the first full-time female addition to the WWE RAW announce team.

"I am so so so insanely excited about this," wrote Young via her official Twitter page. "To be the first woman to take over that chair that so many amazingly talented voices and personalities have sat in before me!"

Young continued, "Thank you to @VinceMcMahon @StephMcMahon @TripleH @MichaelCole and @WWEGraves (and MANY others)."

Check out tonight's WWE Hell In A Cell 2018 go-home episode of WWE RAW, featuring Renee Young on commentary, live on the USA Network this evening. If you can't catch the show, join us here at Rajah.com for live play-by-play results coverage of the show.

Totally deserved and a big improvement, that I back 100%.
 
She's got the job because she's talented, but social media trolls will make you believe she's in this position because she's a woman, so it ticks a box for diversity within the workplace.
 
It's always going to be interesting how she reacts to Dean Ambrose segments, when it's never brought up on weekly programming that they are married.

As someone who obviously is all about women doing well in WWE/Wrestling I'm super happy for Renee, plus she's always worked her butt off to get better/do better so I'm excited.

We all know that diversity in the workplace and the women’s movement in WWE are all big factors in this change, but this takes nothing away from Renee who is hugely talented and becoming the first ever female announcer is massive no matter what the reasons are.

Coachman to me was always better in the backstage interviewer role so the kick-off show host is a better fit for him, you need a smooth silky voice as a announcer and the high pitch of Coaches voice wasn’t the best choice.
