– Renee Young continues to make his history in the WWE. She is is now the first female to have a full-time spot at the RAW announce table. After 25 plus years, we finally have a female calling RAW each and every week; which is way overdue. Renee worked a pair of RAWs in recent weeks as Jonathon Coachman was absent. She did such a great some job, that WWE gave her the position on a full-time basis.

She will now call Monday’s flagship show with Michael Cole and Corey Graves. As for Coachman, he has been moved to the kickoff portion of pay per views and possibly some exclusive content on the WWE Network. He starts that new role at Sunday’s Hell in a Cell.

Here’s WWE’s official statement on the changes to RAW’s announce team.

Renee Young joins Raw announce team full-time

Starting tonight, Renee Young will be the first woman to join the Raw broadcast booth full-time.

She will now bring her unique voice and perspective to the longest-running weekly episodic program in the U.S. as she joins Michael Cole and Corey Graves at the commentary desk. Renee joined WWE in 2012 and has served as a backstage interviewer and commentator on Raw, SmackDown LIVE and NXT. She is currently part of the Mae Young Classic commentary team on WWE Network.

In turn, Jonathan Coachman will take over as the new host of WWE’s pay-per-view kickoff shows. A veteran broadcaster with more than 20 years of experience hosting shows for WWE, ESPN, MSG Network and the Golf Channel, Coachman will bring his unique style to millions of viewers around the world on WWE Network, YouTube, Facebook, Twitter and WWE.com, as the host of WWE’s pay-per-view kickoff shows. Coachman will begin his new role this Sunday, Sept. 16 alongside WWE Hall of Famer Booker T, David Otunga, Sam Roberts and Peter Rosenberg prior to WWE’s Hell in a Cell pay-per-view event.

Over the weekend, Tyron Woodley continued to show that he’s one of the best welterweight fighters by keeping his title at UFC 228 with a second round submission win. After the performance, he received praise from Paul Heyman, who noted that the UFC wanted him to lose to rising star Darren Till.

It was the third title defense for Woodley, who is now 19-3 with one draw. With Heyman, you never know what he’s planning. He could be trying to sign Woodley to his brand or just giving praise where it’s due. Since Brock Lesnar finished his WWE contract to focus on the UFC, no word on what Heyman’s future will be in pro wrestling.
