It’s been over a week since Renee Young quit WWE. Near the end of her WWE stint, the former RAW announcer tested positive for the novel coronavirus which led to her husband Jon Moxley pulling out of AEW Fyter Fest.
Young was quick to let the WWE Universe know about her positive COVID-19 test on Twitter. This was in violation of WWE’s rule which bars Superstars from disclosing the results of any coronavirus tests.
On Sports Illustrated Media Podcast, Young revealed that her disclosure of testing positive for COVID-19 upset WWE to a great extent. Her action “was not well-received” and it was something Young could never anticipate.
“They weren’t even even like ‘You shouldn’t have posted it.’ But it was like, ‘We really wish you gave us a heads up that you were going to post it.’ It was bad for PR and whatnot. But again, I wouldn’t have even thought to be like, “Hey guys, I’m gonna tweet that I have COVID, ha, ha. Like, that was just not what I was thinking about when I posted about it.”
As previously reported, Renee never got a call from high-ups after her positive COVID-19 test and neither did those talents who had also tested positive.
This is believed to be the possible reason behind Young’s sudden WWE exit during SummerSlam weekend.
