WWE Superstar - RENEE YOUNG!

WWE Series 60 - WWE Divas Superstar - Renee Young - Mattel 2016

With all the variety of characters presented in Mattel's' WWE line, I never expected to see a female sportscaster hanging in the toy aisles. Renee Young is a Canadian sports broadcaster and actress who has been with WWE since 2012. She performs commentary and interviews and won a Slammy Award in 2013 for Favorite Web Show of the Year. A just read a cool tidbit that as a young girl, Renee's father was a concert promoter and got her backstage access to a WWE event where she was instantly starstruck by the likes of Triple H, Chyna, and Stone cold Steve Austin. I'm a comic geek so I love a good origin story like that. I'm a big fan of the plain-clothed characters in the WWE line. This figure is especially notable for the cool boots and nice texture detail on her top. Hopefully characters like this prove popular with the fans, because I'd love to see more offbeat choices like this across all of Mattel's various lines. Think Lois Lane and Vickie Vale!  Let's check out out Renee young below!

Time for a Comparison Pic!



  1. I ordered my Renee Young from Amazon the other day and she should be arriving in the mail tomorrow. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like Mattel really captured her likeness that well. I'm still really excited to get her but considering that she is quite possibly the most attractive female on WWE's entire roster of talent, this seems like a bit of a miss.

    1. Yeah these figures are really hit-or-miss with the likenesses. Since I hardly know anything about wrestling, I never know how good the likeness is until I'm reading about the characters for a review. Renee is indeed a gorgeous lady and this figure did not do her justice. My version is the only one I've seen in person. Maybe yours turned out a bit better. Minor paint differences can make a world of difference.
