Renee Young is wrapping up her business-changing (for wrestling), life-changing (for her) time with WWE, and us fans aren’t the only ones feeling some kind of way about it.
Here’s a sampling of wrestlers, announcers and others who worked with her over the last eight years paying tribute to the trailblazing woman we now have to get used to calling Renee Paquette.
.@ReneeYoungWWE broke barriers for female voices. She taught me SO much about the broadcast booth and supported me. She brings out the best in everyone around her. But most of all, she is a friend I treasure. Thank you for everything Renee!— Betty Phoenix (@TheBethPhoenix) August 24, 2020
The women’s evolution was not only in the ring. Renee blazed trails that little girls will follow for generations. Sad to see you leave, but excited to see what’s next! @ReneePaquette pic.twitter.com/3ammdjn9sa— Charlotte Flair (@MsCharlotteWWE) August 24, 2020
@ReneeYoungWWE maybe the most effortlessly talented person I know. The Bobby Eaton of life. I envy you, dude!— Dax FTR (@DaxHarwood) August 24, 2020
She’s obviously incredibly talented on screen but y’all have no idea what a sister she is behind the scenes. Thanks for always giving me an ear homie when no one would listen. https://t.co/L1H3ymyzFl— Mustafa Ali / Adeel Alam (@AliWWE) August 24, 2020

Paul Heyman & Mick Foley beat everyone to the punch by reacting to the reports of her exit last week. There are certainly more, and if you see any we missed, link ‘em in the comments below.
Which, in Renee Paquette’s honor, for this post are brought to you by Tout and Molson.
