WWE icon Renee Young reveals first bizarre encounter with Vince McMahon who 'didn't want to see her without makeup on'
RECENTLY departed WWE favourite Renee Young has revealed her bizarre first encounter with Vince McMahon.
The 34-year-old star worked for McMahon from 2012 but left the company after last month’s SummerSlam.
Now she is no longer employed by the billionaire, Young is able to talk more freely about her time in WWE.
And during an appearance on the Sunday Night Main Event podcast, she recounted a “weird” tale about meeting her old boss for the first time.
Young said: “We were in Hershey, Pennsylvania, I was brought in to TV and I got to the building early, as one does when you’re new.
“I was used to our world of acting auditioning where you show up fresh faced then change and get ready for the show.
“Little me is walking around backstage with a clean face, squeaky clean, and he comes walking down the hallway, and I’m like, ‘Hi!’
“And I don’t remember who it was with him, but they said Vince should not see you without makeup on. You should be fully done.”
Young added: “He did not react in any poor way or anything, but I remember being like, ‘Oh, I didn’t know that. I thought I came here and I would go into makeup, so why would I already have makeup on?’ It was very weird.”
The popular star made history in 2018 when she became Raw’s first-ever female commentator.
That came a year after she married former WWE Title holder Dean Ambrose, now the AEW champion under his Jon Moxley persona with the Tony Khan-backed rival promotion.
Young had been a regular at hosting WWE Backstage as well as both interview and in-ring segments on Raw and SmackDown.
She was a big hit hosting Talking Smack on the WWE Network.
She has also been part of Total Divas since season four, although her appearances have been more sporadic in recent years.
Away from WWE, Young is also working on a cookbook and is believed to have other offers outside of the wrestling industry.
Three months ago she revealed she was one of several WWE employees to have tested positive for Covid-19.
Due to quarantine rules, that forced her husband to postpone his AEW Title defence against Brian Cage at Fyter Fest.
