This story was updated at 12:20 PM Eastern.

Sports website Outkick reported Wednesday that Renee Young is leaving WWE.

PWInsider later confirmed the report, adding she gave her notice a week ago. There is no date for when she is finishing up with the company, nor where she might be going, but she is expected to be working SummerSlam this weekend. Our Dave Meltzer has independently confirmed the news as well.

The 34-year-old Canadian was signed by WWE in 2012 after working with what is now SportsNet 360 on Right After Wrestling (later called Aftermath), a pro wrestling show with Mauro Ranallo, Arda Ocal, and Jimmy Korderas.

She has done a myriad of on-screen work in her eight years with WWE including commentating, backstage interviewing, and as a host for studio shows like WWE Backstage and various pre/post shows. She became the first woman to do commentary for an entire episode of Raw in 2018, a role she took on full-time until being moved to SmackDown in October 2019 as a special contributor. She also handled commentary duties on NXT and Superstars during her WWE career.

Young, who is married to AEW's Jon Moxley, announced in July that she is writing a cookbook The two live in Las Vegas, Nevada.

I think we all assumed this was coming at some point.

yeap, I don't even feel like WWE has even given her reasons to stay since Mox left. Maybe this is why the rumors of Talking Smack started yesterday

That wouldn't matter if she gave her notice last week, though.

you mean talking smack? I mean, just because we barely found out doesn't mean that they didn't talk about it to Young last week when she gave her notice

She won’t as big a part as she has previously in WWE if she goes to AEW, but they’ll probably book her commentate women’s matches or something.
Have A Nice Day!

They'd be stupid to not make her the lead backstage interviewer, which is her strongest thing. Realistically, I'm 99% sure she's headed to ESPN, they've wanted her for a while

Agreed. Always thought she was on the level of Mean Gene, playing the straight man to these crazy wrestlers and adding to segments that she's in.
