Renee Young Reveals How Dean Ambrose Got Her Attention

WWE reporter Renee Young and superstar Dean Ambrose are one of the most well-known and beloved wrestling power couples. The couple began dating in 2015, and they quietly got married in April of last year.

Both Young and Ambrose have kept their relationship fairly private, rarely giving out information and details. But on the Sam Roberts Wrestling Podcast (h/t WrestlingInc.com), Young revealed how her and Ambrose started talking - and how the former World Champion won her over:

"I feel like everyone else was, trying to, like, get my attention, maybe, and he was trying to play it cool. So I didn't know this [was Ambrose's tactic]. And people are always perplexed, like, 'how did you guys get together?' He doesn't talk to anybody, but he always talked to me and I didn't know because I didn't know him prior, so I was like, 'okay.

He was very subtle in his approach, kind of, but the thing that threw me off the most about him, which I don't think a lot of people do these days, is he would call me. He would, like, call me. Yeah, man! Like, my phone would ring and he was still in my phone as 'Dean Ambrose' and he would call me."

And the rest, as they say, is history.

Ambrose is known for having a quiet personality backstage, and Young has acknowledged this many times. The pair can be seen on episodes of Total Divas, though Young did add "You don't get to see how we actually are with each other when we are together."

Though Young is primarily used as a reporter/commentator for WWE, she has been incorporated in the occasional storylines.


During a Dec. 2016 episode of SmackDown Live, The Miz took a shot at Young, taunting her for "sleeping" with Ambrose. Young proceeded by slapping The Miz, then eventually moved out of the storyline between her husband and the eight-time Intercontinental Champion.

Earlier this year, Young interviewed Samoa Joe shortly after he "injured" Ambrose - who's out nine months with an elbow injury. Joe playfully made fun of Ambrose for being hurt and relying on his wife's money.

But otherwise, Young and Ambrose remain a happily married couple - though not one to share much information or detail. Ambrose doesn't use social media, and Young almost never posts photos with her husband on Instagram. Nonetheless, they remain one of the most successful and popular wrestling couples - and you can thank Ambrose for advice on how to get a girl's attention.
