Renee Young Talks WWE Backstage, Creative Storytelling, and Wanting to Be a Manager

For the latest with Clay Travis & Outkick, sign-up for our daily newsletter.

Renee Young, host of WWE Backstage — which airs Tuesday nights at 11 pm ET on FS1 — joined Outkick this week! We discussed:

  • Asuka and Otis getting deserved victories in Money in the Bank
  • The logistics of filming WWE Backstage virtually instead of all in studio.
  • When she knew CM Punk would be “breaking the internet” by joining WWE Backstage.
  • Creative WWE storytelling elements — Firefly Funhouse, Graveyard match, and the way they shot Money in the Bank main event — that could endure post pandemic.
  • Wanting to be a manager, who she’d want to manage, and what other roles she thinks she could do well in WWE.
  • Talking Smack, and how she knew how to handle the icy interaction between The Miz and Daniel Bryan.

Hope you enjoy!
