Some people in WWE apparently have something against Renee Young preferring not to wear shoes.
According to this week’s issue of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, the blonde announcer is known within the sports-entertainment organization for not wearing shoes at times while conducting interviews backstage, which is okay since her feet don’t appear on camera. She prefers not to wear them in her daily life, and has admitted that she sometimes drives barefoot. Now after being ribbed for her personal preference last month live on-air by Triple H, she was lightly teased again for it on this week’s episode of WWE Main Event in a scripted comment from Roman Reigns.
After Renee asked Reigns in the ring about someone grabbing history this Sunday in the WWE World Heavyweight Championship Ladder Match at Money in the Bank, Reigns said that he is a wanted man and The Authority has a bulls-eye on him, so he would feel more comfortable if she took off her shoes so she can run away if needed.
Following the May 26 edition of Raw in Knoxville, Tennessee, Renee was lightly ribbed on Backstage Pass on the WWE Network for not wearing any shoes during an interview with members of Evolution.
Triple H asked Renee, “The big question is why don’t you wear shoes when you do these?”
“I … don’t have an answer for that,” she responded.
Renee tried to play it cool despite appearing a little flustered and caught off guard by Triple H actually calling attention to her unsual preference.
