    I think if you really want to showcase his dominance, put him in a handicap match or have him run the gauntlet. It could still be a squash match, but in keeping with the Extreme Rules label, I think this would be more fitting.

  2. MC Live says:

    Given her clear passion for the wrestling business, I would be very surprised if she left WWE this quickly, unless they offer her a ridiculous amount of money. She seems to really love her job now, and it feels like she is truly in awe of her position, so I would doubt she would leave WWE. Plus, I don’t want her to go. I don’t nearly watch ESPN enough.

  3. Agent Cooper says:

    ESPN seems to like poaching WWE announcers. Coachman, Grisham, and now Young. I don’t think the WWE minds losing them to ESPN though because having so many ex-WWE employees on a major network like ESPN gives them the mainstream exposure they love.

  4. What? says:

    @Chris: I think the “time permitting” nixes the idea of a gauntlet, valid though it may be. After all, they need time in the pay-per-view for the usual endless recaps and frequent commercials for the pay-per-view that we have in fact already paid to currently be watching.

    Espn anchors dont make a ton these days unless theyre one of the very few stars

    I think Renee Young is probably better off staying. After Erin Andrews had success there are tons of blonde women on the sidelines, in the studios, and everywhere else in the sports world. She definitely stands out in the WWE.
