Renee Young Speaks On Joining The WWE, Original WWE Name

WWE Commentator Renee Young has said that she was originally going to be called Renee Sterling, when she entered the WWE in 2012. 

Speaking on Edge and Christian's 'Pod of Awesomeness', the Toronto-born star was not aware that she would have to change her name, when she joined the WWE. 

She said: "I was so stressed out about this ... I didn't know that my name was going to change and that kind of threw me for a loop because, as [Edge and Christian] said, I was working in Canada before and had been on TV before, so I felt very odd about changing my name."

Before joining WWE, Young had worked for 'The Score Television Network' in Canada, under real name Renee Paquette. 

Young also spoke on her decision to leave her role in Canada, for the United States.

"I knew that I wanted my next step to be in the U.S. And I did, at the time, have a couple of different offers on the table or a lot of different career path opportunities," she said.

"The week of my audition at WWE, I think it was later in the week or maybe it was a Monday to a Monday kind of situation, but the week prior, I had gone to ESPN because they were really heavily considering bringing me in to take over SportsNation."
