Renee Paquette discusses AEW debut and how it came about

AEW’s newest addition, Renee Paquette, said that the deal to go to AEW came “really fast” and happened after she talked with her husband about missing being involved in the business.

She said that in her house, they talk a lot about wrestling and she never really talked to Tony Khan about going to AEW, but after expressing her desire to return, things were done pretty quickly.

“It all happened really fast. It literally happened so fast where all of a sudden Jon and I had been talking about it and then it felt like the next day, my manager is calling me going, ‘Oh yeah, they are reaching out, the contract is coming through.’ I was like, ‘Wow, that was a quick turnaround,'” Paquette said during the latest episodes of The Sessions podcast.

Renee added that she has no intention of doing commentary for AEW at the moment, but she would evaluate the situation if the need arises.

As for as what her job in AEW involves, Renee said that Tony Khan knows her skillset and he knows what she can bring to the table.

“I think it’s more of a let’s get you in here, let’s just start working, and I’ll think we’ll figure it out as we go,” she said.

Speaking about WWE, Renee said that she did everything she could possibly do there. She admitted that things can get “muddy” in conversations about WWE vs AEW and she wants nothing to do with that.

“WWE was so great to me for years. Of course, yeah I can have my gripes about things but who couldn’t about any job? They gave me such a great platform and I really did have a great time there and obviously, this opportunity now with AEW would not be afforded to me had I not had the reputation and career that I was able to have in WWE,” Paquette continued.
