Renee Young recently sat down with TV Insider to discuss her new life as one of the hosts for WWE Backstage, and discussed a ton of other incredibly interesting topics, including CM Punk’s arrival on the show, and what she likes to do outside of the world of wrestling.
Check out some of the highlights below:
On the joy of being on WWE Backstage:
We’re sitting around talking about wrestling. What can’t be fun about that. From doing backstage interviews, doing commentary, seeing me in that traditional host role is where I’m happiest and what I always wanted to do. To be back wearing that hat, I feel like I’m firing on all cylinders again. I love it.
On CM Punk joining the show:
I saw on my timeline he likened it to the frozen caveman coming back to life and checking out the wrestling world again. Fans respect Punk so much, to see him back in any capacity of the wrestling world is a huge win for everybody all around. To see him get more comfortable in that spot, it’s fun. It’s cool to be there with him side-by-side as he is dipping his toe back into this world.
To hear his perspective and share that on television, I’m looking forward to seeing what happens this week coming up as we always look for that honest opinion from him. Anything that strays from that would be a misstep. We want that unfiltered Punk on our show.
On her life outside of WWE:
I’m in love when it comes to holidays. I will watch any Christmas movie. Once I got exposed to these movies I thought, ‘I love this. I want to be a part of this.’ I’m constantly tweeting at them, making posts. Unfortunately, I’m not getting a lot of love back from Hallmark. I think I would be a shoe-in. I can be the next Candace Cameron Bure. I’m ready. Sign me up.
