Renee Young will reportedly be on the WWE Crown Jewel broadcast team

By Jason Powell, ProWrestling.net Editor (@prowrestlingnet)

Renee Young will be part of the broadcast team for Friday’s WWE Crown Jewel event, according to ProwrestlingSheet.com.

Powell’s POV: It’s a step in the right direction if this turns out to be the case. WWE has yet to make an announcement on the matter despite my request for a comment, but one would suspect they will make a big fuss over it as a sign of progress to have a female broadcast team member on a show held in Saudi Arabia.

  1. If they make a big “fuss” over it it’s because it’s a big deal. If you’re going to report objectively and complain about everything about this Crown Jewel event (much of it 100% justified) then you should be able to report that allowing a female broadcaster is pretty significant, without still taking the time to bash them for it.

    • I didn’t knock it, nor will I trumpet it either. Is this happening because of progress or a concession by the Saudis to get WWE to follow through with the show (along with the millions and millions of dollars)? I want to know a lot more about it and, for that matter, how she is treated if she makes the trip.

      • You literally did knock it. Please drop the politicized bullshit and get back to being a really good wrestling reporter.

        • No, I said it’s a step in the right direction. What part of what I wrote is knocking WWE? And I can’t help but laugh at anyone who implies we should leave politics out of wrestling when WWE is running an f’n show in Saudi Arabia at this time. To ignore that and take a business as usual approach would be asinine.

          No, he did not knock it. If you read it that way, it’s because YOU READ IT THAT WAY MORON! I suspect it’s a small concession on the Saudis part to ensure the show happens. I’m still shocked they would be ok with her being there.

  2. I think it’s probably a little of both. She’s a brave gal for going. I hope major news outlets pick this up and give her credit, because this is quite a big deal. Like legitimately CNN and Fox should be running stories about a woman announcer going to a show where no other women were allowed to go.

  3. Let’s hope she isn’t the next one to disappear there…
