Jon Moxley (fka Dean Ambrose) left WWE for AEW right after WrestleMania 35 but his wife, Renee Young is still an active employee in Vince McMahon’s company.
Today, Renee is the leading on-screen female broadcast personality in WWE and serves as an inspiration for young women who want to make it in the pro wrestling business without stepping in the ring.
Young’s current job labels her as the co-host of the WWE Backstage show on FS1 and “special contributor” on Friday Night SmackDown.
During a recent interview with Screen Geek, Moxley discussed the possibility of Renee quitting WWE for AEW.
“Uh, she’s got A LOT of stuff on her plate. Alot of things she wants to do. I mean, you’d have to ask her what all her goals and aspirations are, but she has a lot of them outside the wrestling business. Right now she’s just like, right now over there she’s completely invaluable.”
Renee made history as the first female to ever join the commentary team on Monday Night RAW. She is also one of the leading personalities on WWE pre-shows.
“She has a lot of great opportunities with Fox, and uh, which is great for her, and uh, her, you know, I uh… her future is in her hands, she can do whatever she wants, and she’s uh… It’s good to be her right now. A lot on her plater right now, a lot on her plate. It’s very cool, you know?“
Moxley also took a jab at WWE’s traditional booking style. While AEW has vowed to make wins and losses matter, WWE likes to rely on a 50/50 booking format where neither Superstar gets the upper hand in the feud.
“I think a lot of wrestling on TV over the last few years is everybody is fighting everybody all the time and everybody is pinning everybody, everybody’s beating – champions are getting pinned every night. You get a title match because you beat the champion. Well, then he’s not the champion anymore, is he? I think we need to preserve the old school, big fight feel.”
