Next week’s episode of WWE Monday Night Raw will be the go home episode for SummerSlam, and Jonathan Coachman will not be on commentary for the show.
Instead Renee Young will be filling in as a special guest commentator, and it’s going to be not only a big moment for Renee, but for Monday Night Raw as well. According to Michael Cole, Renee will be the first woman in history to do commentary for an entire episode of Raw.
“I believe this is the first time ever that we have had a woman in the booth for an entire episode of Monday Night RAW,” Cole told ESPN.
Renee Young commented on the opportunity and it sounds like she’s more than ready to step up to the plate.
“When Michael told me, I was like, ‘This Monday?! What are you talking about?!’,” Young said. “I am so excited for this opportunity. To be sitting with Cole, who has been such a great champion of mine since I’ve been working for WWE, it’s going to be really cool.”
Renee is also set to be part of the commentary team for this year’s Mae Young Classic along with Beth Phoenix and Michael Cole.
And secondly. #raw will be absolutely incredible Monday Night with @ReneeYoungWWE joining me and @WWEGraves! Renee is true trailblazer and about to do something that has never been done before! This is gonna be fun! https://t.co/7o1DmTz5wv
