Renee Young has opened up on doing commentary for the controversial WWE Crown Jewel pay-per-view event in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia at the King Fahd International Stadium on the WWE Network.
Unlike the Greatest Royal Rumble pay-per-view event in the country this past April, there was a female on-air talent working the broadcast. She joined Michael Cole and Corey Graves, which is the announce team for Monday Night RAW, on commentary for this latest event.
She reflected on the experience when she and Cole were recently interviewed on BBC Radio 5’s Live morning show. This led to her sharing what some of the fans in the country that attended the show told her at this event.
Young started off by saying that it was very cool to be a woman welcomed into Saudi Arabia to step into the announce booth and be part of the broadcast. She recounted that there were many men, women, children were coming up to her to let her known that this was a big moment of change and that there is a demand and a need for women to be performing in Saudi Arabia. She added, “They are asking for it, certainly.”
