Renee Young was a guest on Sam Roberts’ Wrestling Podcast where she spoke at length about her relationship with Dean Ambrose.

Young first explained how she has found a balance with Ambrose despite their different personalities.

“I know [pro wrestling fans are obsessed with the real life relationship between the kayfabe Young and Ambrose]. Love it! Of course! Women love relationships! Yeah, yeah, it’s funny having people care about your relationship. And we have kind of like a funny juxtaposition where I talk to everybody about everything all the time. Like, I don’t really consider myself like a very private person, but he’s the polar opposite, so it’s finding that balance of what people can see and what people can’t see. But yeah, it’s very interesting having people care about your relationship. It’s funny. Parts of it don’t seem that bad, but you get very protective of all of your things.”

Young explained how Total Divas has been difficult for her due to her husband being more of a private person.

“Obviously, when we were doing Total Divas that was an odd thing for us to make him not be just Dean Ambrose. You don’t get to see how we actually are with each other when we are together.” Young said of Ambrose, “he essentially is the person that you think he is. The person that you’ve dreamt up Dean Ambrose being, that’s what he’s like, but obviously, it’s different when we’re home and our dynamic is much different than that. But, yeah, he’s a lovely man! He’s really, truly great.”

Finally, Young spoke about romantic interactions other superstars had with her which made Ambrose stand out.

“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.”
