Now that she is leaving WWE, Renee Young penned an open letter and here is an excerpt:
“Like — earlier this year, I got sick with COVID. And I’m lying there in bed, just sort of like, UGH. BLAH. BLECH. Everything sucks. I feel terrible. And then suddenly my phone rings. And I reach over and grab it, and look at it. And on the caller name itjust says:
And I’m just like in this COVID daze, still, you know, so I’m only like halfway there. But I pick it up. And I’m like, ‘Umm….. hello, Mr….. sir?’
‘HEY KID, IT’S STEVE HERE. JUST WANTED TO MAKESURE YOU’RE ALRIGHT. WANTED TO CALL ABOUT WHAT YOUR SYMPTOMS ARE LIKE, SEE WHAT’S WHAT. KNOW YOU’RE STAYING TOUGH.’
Oh, right, OK, for sure. It’s just Stone Cold Steve Austin — checking in. He wants to see how my COVID is doing.
How do you even explain to someone what your life is like, when things like THAT are happening to you? How do you even explain it to yourself?
How could I explain to 2012 Renee what her life will be like in eight years? What kind of amazing adventures she’ll have been on?
Oh, yeah — and how do I tell her that she marries a wrestler???”
