Canadian Sports Broadcaster Renee Young will create history on August 13 when she will become the first woman ever to act as a commentator for a full episode of Monday Night Raw. WWE announced that she will serve as guest commentator for Monday’s Raw from Greensboro, NC, the final Raw before SummerSlam.

Renee will substitute for Jonathan Coachman for next week’s episode as Coach will be out fulfilling another obligation. Renee will be a part of the broadcast team for all three hours of Raw along with Michael Cole and Corey Graves. Renee Young recently recorded her second day of commentary for the Mae Young Classic in Orlando alongside Beth Phoenix as part of the first WWE commentary team with two women. Now she’s set to make more history for the coming Monday night.

Speaking to reporters, Renee shared her excitement about this opportunity. She said, “When Michael told me, I was like, ‘This Monday?! What are you talking about?!’ I am so excited for this opportunity. To be sitting with Cole, who has been such a great champion of mine since I’ve been working for WWE, it’s going to be really cool.”

Michael Cole also spoke to ESPN. Talking about Renee, he said that she has broken barriers and is doing things which were never dreamt of.

“I believe this is the first time ever that we have had a woman in the booth for an entire episode of Monday Night RAW. Renee has broken barriers all over the place.”

He said, “She’s reaching out and doing things that would have never been dreamed of 10 years ago.”

Renee has hosted WWE pay-per-view kickoff shows. She was the primary anchor for post-pay-per-view shows “Talking Smack” and “Raw Talk”. Along with that, she is a regular interviewer on WWE shows.

A lot of people took to congratulate Renee for her feat:
