Renee Paquette has revealed that her WWE non-compete clause has now expired.

The Toronto native left the company following SummerSlam in 2020, although she has appeared sporadically on WWE television since.

Since leaving WWE, Paquette launched her own podcast Oral Sessions, as well as releasing a cook book.

Speaking ahead of the launch of her latest show, ‘Throwing Down with Renee and Miesha’ alongside UFC star Miesha Tate, Paquette confirmed her WWE non-compete clause is now up.

Appearing on the Wrestling Inc Daily, Paquette said that she is “free and clear,”

“I think I’m free and clear,” Paquette revealed. “I can be at Bloodsport. I’m gonna be at Bloodsport. Everyone better buckle up and hold on to their asses. I’ll fight anyone, except for Miesha. I won’t fight Miesha.”

Paquette admitted that she would be open to joining her husband Jon Moxley in AEW, adding that she’s missed pro wrestling.

“I’m definitely open to the idea,” Paquette said. “I miss pro wrestling, I miss being involved in the pro wrestling world, in that capacity, but I don’t know what that job would be or what my role could be within AEW. We could probably rattle off a couple different ideas of things to do, and as AEW is growing, as their broadcasts are growing, as they’re adding on new shows, I think there’s definitely a role.”

“I don’t know that I necessarily want to jump back onto commentary by any means, but I think doing some interviews, doing some features., I love doing features. I just love pro wrestling. I love all the athletes behind it so getting to pick their brains in sort of an Oral Sessions way and Throwing Down way, to have them be part of a broadcast with AEW or something like that could be really cool. Or, maybe I just valet Miesha.”

Paquette signed with WWE in 2012, remaining with the company until August 2020. During her time with WWE, Paquette, appearing under the name Renee Young, worked in a variety of on-screen roles, becoming the first woman to hold a permanent position on the Monday Night Raw commentary team in 2018.
