Renee Young has become one of the best female faces on WWE’s announce team over the past few years and it’s become well-known that she is now married to former World Champion Dean Ambrose.
The couple was part of Total Divas for a few seasons before it was decided that they could be replaced. The issues that Renee and Dean had at the time was that she was a very open member of the cast, but Ambrose is very private, which made it hard for him to have a camera following him around on a regular basis.
Renee recently appeared on Lilian Garcia’s Chasing Glory podcast, where she was able to talk about her time on Total Divas and the issues it caused.
“It was a cool experience, but I think when I was in the middle of it and even when we started and I get the call, ‘You’re going to be on Total Divas’, I was like ‘Okay…’, because I knew I was going to have to broach this subject with my significant other [Dean Ambrose]. She said via WrestlingInc.
“Now listen if it was destiny, it probably would have been a little bit different, but I also might not have been on the show if it was just me. It was hard, it was really hard and even now when I see the girls and they’re on the road, and you’ve got a camera in your face, and you’re taking these vacations that aren’t really vacations, it’s exhausting, it’s really a lot of work. I commend them all for doing it.”
“For the people that it’s great for, its great for, but I think the problem that I essentially ran into was that I’m not a private person and my husband is. I didn’t want to make him do something that he didn’t want to do.”
Renee was also able to open up about her relationship with Ambrose and how the couple actually came together.
“I feel like we just always talked. We would like connect and hang out, but at this point, I did not know that he doesn’t talk to anybody, because he always just talked to me. So we would be on Voxer this app, it’s like a walkie-talkie app and we would just message each other all day long and we would always make plans, try to hang out.
“As soon as we actually like hung out, he came and met me in Orlando. We were on like neutral territory, I was down there doing NXT because there were times when he said he was going to come to New York and I’m like, ‘You’re not staying in my apartment! What do you think that means?!’ So he came to meet me in Orlando and we hung out and we’ve literally been together since.”
Dean Ambrose is expected to return to WWE TV at SummerSlam.
