There are a number of people who have just been handed over a position at the WWE commentary table even if they didn’t want it. The WWE over the years started to add people to the commentary team based on how famous they were.
Some of their selections were horrible! Ranee Young started her WWE career as a backstage interviewer. Her charm and good looks helped her develop a huge fan base. She is very famous and many different outlets want her to work for them.
Young spoke about her previous job as a commentator. She now hosts the WWE Backstage show on FS1. She told Sport Illustrated media Podcasts about how she learned that she would be on RAW’s commentary team. "So one week Michael Cole and Triple H pulled me aside and said that I am going to be doing commentary on Monday Night Raw next week.
I was like, what? Why? Whose idea was this? With anything, you're like, alright, this opportunity is in front of me I am going to try and figure this out. I consider myself really talented in being able to talk. I know the ins and outs of the wrestling business; this should work”.
Young was definitely not comfortable with her role. At times, it could be clearly felt that she was struggling. In the same interview, she stated that she was actually not comfortable with her job at all.
