Sports Media with Richard Deitsch - September 17, 2018 - 40:30

Episode 21 of the Sports Media Podcast features Renee Young, who was recently named as a fulltime commentator on Monday Night Raw, the WWE’s flagship show. Young is the first woman to hold that position. In the podcast, Young discusses why her six-year run at WWE has worked out as well as it has; how she found about getting the Raw job from Michael Cole, Triple H, Stephanie McMahon, and Vince McMahon; what her process is like to prepare for Monday Night Raw; how much she is aware of specific match activity versus storyline/backstory; how NXT helped develop her as an announcer; what her WWE audition was like; how her real-life will or will not impact what viewers will hear from her if Dean Ambrose (her real-life husband) is appearing on RAW; what makes Stephanie McMahon and Paul Heyman such great performers; how Heyman has helped her since her early days with WWE; which people in the company she hangs with while on the road; her newfound love of the NHL’s Vegas Golden Knights; why The Shield would beat the nWo; the dream WWE match she’d like to call, and much more. You can subscribe to this podcast on Apple Podcasts, Google Play, Stitcher and more.
