Renee Paquette Says Her Pregnancy Has Already Affected WWE Programming

It has been a few weeks since Jon Moxley dropped the bombshell that he and Renee Paquette are expecting their first child. It was quite the Dynamite promo to say the least. However, Paquette has revealed that her pregnancy has already affected WWE programming.

Speaking on The Bellas Podcast, Paquette said she was supposed to be on the SmackDown kickoff show back in October but decided against traveling due to COVID. Here is the quote, courtesy of Post Wrestling:

“That was sort of the thing for me was finding out that I was pregnant and then I was supposed to do the kickoff show for the season premiere of SmackDown on FOX. I was supposed to fly to Orlando and that’s when I asked Brie [Bella] because I just didn’t know what to do about it. I was like, ‘Am I allowed to travel?’ Or what does that look like? How careful do I have to be with everything? I mean granted, I’ve already had COVID so I’ve not tested my antibodies in a while.

I’m assuming I maybe still have them but I don’t really know, but then I reached out to my doctor too who I was seeing at the time and she was like, ‘You have to be so careful with everything and it’s just not worth it’ and Brie basically reiterated the same thing of just like how careful you have to be and how much more susceptible you can be during pregnancy to really any kind of an illness and it just obviously wasn’t worth it to roll the dice on that, and luckily everybody that I spoke to at FOX and whatnot, they were all so great and so receptive. They understood where I was coming from and they helped me out big time with that but yeah, I had to pull out of doing that show right away just because.”

Renee Paquette left WWE early this year after eight years with the company.
