Renee Young recently spoke with Jim Varsallone of The Miami Herald to promote WWE’s WrestleMania 32. The full interview can be read at this link. Below are highlights:
“Being able to now work in WWE, which has a great combination of sports and entertainment, it’s such an awesome marriage. It just seems to work perfectly for me, coming from a sports world. Though, I didn’t come from a sports world as a sports aficionado. I kind of figured out a lot of stuff on my own.”
Her “Unfiltered” WWE Network show:
“[Unfiltered] helped me get my feet wet. As a talent for WWE, I’m always trying to let people know what it is that I do and what I’m capable of doing, and being able to do ‘Unfiltered’ was such a great opportunity for me to show another side of ‘Renee Young’…and not only just me but everyone else, because that’s the cool thing about ‘Unfiltered’ is that everyone always comes into it very open and honest. Everyone gets to let down their walls a little bit, which is awesome. Kevin Owens comes on and is [Kevin Steen]. People getting to see what Summer Rae is actually like and Seth Rollins. Being able to do that stuff is really important to me. I love the human element of sitting down and talking to people.
“Now moving into Spring time and getting down to Dallas, we’re going to start filming again to get out some more interviews. We’re going to expand it and make it feel like a real TV show. I’ve been working on the show a little bit with some other producers to see what the new elements are going to be and how the show is going to come together. I’m so excited to have it come back and be a real show. I’m going to be so happy and proud, saying that in advance of me actually doing anything yet , but I feel good about it.”
“I’d definitely be open to the idea of doing a storyline in some capacity. I think it would be so fun to jump in there and do something like that. If that opportunity came along, I would go with it, but I think WWE has other things in mind for me.”
