After filling in for Jonathan Coachman on the August 13, 2018 episode of RAW and impressing almost everyone with her impressive skills, Renee Young becomes the first full-time female commentator in WWE history. Needless to say, she’s pretty hyped about it.

Michael Cole and Corey Graves welcomed Renee Young to the commentary booth at the start of this week’s episode of RAW, marking Renee’s first day as Coach’s replacement. She will give up her pre-show discussion panel hosting duties to Coachman effective immediately, so don’t be surprised if you see the Coach opening the Hell in a Cell pre-show on Sunday. Renee Young’s latest milestone sparked positive reactions among the WWE and the WWE Universe alike.

Fans wanted Renee Young to be a permanent part of the RAW commentary and they finally got their wish. Jonathan Coachman himself was gracious about the move. He sent out a tweet to congratulate Renee, stating that she deserved to move to the table on RAW. “To be part of a team means understanding your strengths and using them to help the team grow. I have always embraced with positivity any role asked of me. That will not change,” the Coach wrote.

WWE personalities also expressed their excitement for Renee Young. Stephanie McMahon and Triple H led the pack in sending out their congratulations, while her friends and counterparts from SmackDown Live also congratulated their former resident correspondent. SmackDown GM Paige, Charlotte Flair, Carmella, Bayley, and even the dastardly Samoa Joe took time to send some congratulatory words for Renee. Check out some of their reactions below.
