Work hard and you will be rewarded. Simple but true. Tonight will be a top 5 highlight in my 22 year career. Congrats @ReneeYoungWWE— Michael Cole (@MichaelCole) September 10, 2018
I would like to think I had a hand in pushing this talented individual to lock down a more stable income for her household, but this isn't about me. Congrats Renee. https://t.co/l7Ch5xZFhS— Samoa Joe (@SamoaJoe) September 10, 2018
