Renee Paquette Comments on Status of Her WWE Non-Compete Clause & AEW Interest
A recent episode of the WrestlingInc Daily podcast had Renee Paquette, former Renee Young in WWE, as the guest. Some of the topics discussed included the current status of her WWE non-compete clause, remaining involved with wrestling, and her interest in possibly joining AEW in the near future.
On the topic of the current status of her WWE non-compete clause, Paquette stated:
“My non-compete with WWE is nearly up … I still have a good standing relationship with WWE. There’s no ill-will or bad blood or anything like that.”
On the topic of her remaining involved with wrestling, Paquette stated:
“I don’t ever want to separate myself from professional wrestling. I know that’s where my fanbase comes from; I know that’s essentially going to always be my bread and butter — and I love that,” Paquette stated. “I love professional wrestling, so I’m not looking to ‘get away’ from it by any stretch.”
On the topic of her interest in possibly joining AEW in the near future, Paquette stated:
“Looking at AEW, I think there are endless opportunities of other things I could be doing over there, if that was to be something that came up down the line. I’ve honestly not put much thought into it.”
