Renee Paquette Addresses Potential WWE Return, Joining AEW

After signing with WWE in 2012 where she worked as a backstage interviewer, host, and color commentator, Renee Paquette left the company in 2020.

Paquette recently spoke with NBC Sports Boston and explained that she’d be more than open to returning to the company if the right deal was offered. 

“Yeah, I mean, listen, if there’s one thing I’ve learned in pro wrestling, is you never say never,” Paquette admitted. “You never know what’s gonna happen and as I said, it’s not like I left WWE because I was like, screw this, I hate this, I don’t wanna be here [laughs]. Like, that was not how I left, that’s not why I left.

“So, yeah, I think if the right opportunity came up, of course, I would be all ears and be interested in that. There is a big part of me that misses it, of course, I miss it, I miss my friends, I miss, there are certain things that I miss. I’m sure within a second of being back, I’d be like, oh my God, I’m back into this again. But no, I think I would be open to the conversation depending on what it is. It would have to be the right thing, it would have to be something new and fresh and with good people.”

With her husband, Jon Moxley working in AEW, there have been fans wanting to see her in the promotion. However, Renee doesn’t know what she would do in AEW if she did join. 

“That’s the thing, I don’t know, is like what would I do? I don’t want to do commentary, I don’t think going to do backstage interviews is the move, so I think, again, it would have to be something different, something that I felt like was, ya know, using my skills in the best way. It’s trying to find that sweet spot, I love doing backstage interviews but I’ve done that for so long that I need to find what other things I can do. Ya know, if it’s like a cool sit-down interview or ya know, an expansion of something like The Sessions and being able to talk to the talent and do some, like, really great personality profiles.

“Like, stuff that I’m really into, yeah, I mean there’s stuff that I would love to do in coming up with, like, creative on what exactly that would be. But yeah, I would be into that, I mean, ya know, you look at both those worlds, it’s like WWE and AEW, WWE is the familiar thing that I know is a thing and that I have done that for the longest duration of my career, so of course, it’s always there but then you look at the things on AEW and they’re still, ya know, obviously my husband’s there and I still have a ton of other friends that are there, I’m there [AEW] more often than I’m not, I’m there very much. But yeah, I would be open to a conversation about that.”
