Renee Paquette was known as Renee Young in WWE and she recently spoke about Vince McMahon Yelling at her one time. Renee started her career in the WWE as a backstage interviewer. However, she quickly made a name for herself and gained a huge number of fans.
WWE eventually started giving her more important and prominent roles in the company. She found herself on the commentary table, a role which she revealed in other many interviews that she was not comfortable with. She revealed in an interview with Ariel Helwani that she nearly went off set when Vince McMahon screamed at her once.
Renee Paquette Speaks About Vince McMahon Screaming at Her Once
“Yes, of course,” Renee Paquette said. “I wasn’t on commentary for this moment, but it was after I had done commentary and I was doing a panel.
We were in Las Vegas and we’re doing a panel show where they cut to us during the show. It was some kind of special. Tyson Fury was on the show, when he was doing his stint in WWE, and it was me, Samoa Joe, Booker T and Beth Phoenix.
And I was throwing to a package, ‘blah, blah, blah, something, something, the Gypsy King, Tyson Fury, throw to package.’ And he’s in my ear and he goes, ‘YOU F**KING RUINED IT!’. Screaming in my ear, telling me I ruined this segment because I didn’t refer to Tyson Fury as the lineal champion.
So he’s screaming at me, and at this point, I am over it. I’ve done the commentary thing, I’m just like, I’m a little bit hardened to all the circumstances. So he’s yelling at me about this, and I’m looking down at my notes.
Maybe I’m looking to Samoa Joe, taking in this information in my ear. But he thinks I’m ignoring him, so he yells at me again, ‘DO YOU HEAR ME?! ACKNOLWEDGE THAT YOU HEAR ME!’. And he wanted me to look into the camera and be like, ‘yes sir, I hear you, I understand you.
I apologize.’ But yeah, just to be yelled at like that for a small– I don’t even want to say mistake. I didn’t make a mistake, I just didn’t call him the lineal world champion. I didn’t know it was that necessary.
It was if I had ruined the run of Tyson Fury in WWE by not calling him that. But to be yelled at like that in front of your peers was pretty demoralizing. To just be yelled at that I had ruined a segment, I felt bad about it.
Then we had to come back and do an on camera after that, and I wanted to pull of my headset and just literally get in my car and drive home. At that point, I had just had it”.
