Renee Young will make history on Monday Night when she steps into Jonathan Coachman’s seat and becomes the first woman to commentate for an entire episode of Monday Night RAW.
Young was named as one of the three stars on commentary for the Mae Young Classic yesterday and was part of the tapings that took place last night, where she must have had an impressive showing.
Young has commentated on the Women’s Division before as part of Main Event and NXT but has taken her place as a backstage interviewer and the host of WWE’s pre-show panels in recent years.
The WWE Universe seems impressed that the Women’s Revolution has continued and that Young is finally being given an opportunity that she has deserved for a number of years.
Renee herself has responded to the news, as well as the likes of Paul Heyman, Corey Graves, and Michael Cole, the latter of which she will be alongside on Monday Night for the entirety of the show, a show which her husband Dean Ambrose could make his return on.
This is an opportunity that Young has been hinting about over the past few months, the former NXT commentator is hoping that WWE opts for an all-female commentary team at the first ever all Women’s pay-per-view which is entitled Evolution and that she is one of the women who is chosen to be part of it.
I applaud @WWE for the decision to have @ReneeYoungWWE sit in this coming Monday as a guest commentator on #RAW. The entire program has just been handed an instant upgrade. Bravo! A most worthy recipient of this extraordinary opportunity! https://t.co/ct3xOXt6IO

This week’s episode of RAW could easily be a dress rehearsal ahead of the event on October 28th and will allow Young to prove to Vince McMahon and Triple H that she is a safe pair of hands when it comes to commentating as part of a pay-per-view.
