WRESTLING- WWE has announced Canadian sports broadcaster Renee Young as the first female to commentate on an entire episode of Monday Night Raw.

This is the first time in the 25-year history of Monday Night Raw that a woman will provide commentary for the full three-hour broadcast.

Young has been working for WWE since October 2012. She will appear alongside regular commentators Corey Graves and Michael Cole on August 13.

"I'm so excited to have this opportunity," Young told the WWE website.

"This means a lot to me - to be able to open the doors for more women to be able to get this ball rolling, get our voices out there and have us finally be heard."

Raw's on-screen commissioner and WWE Chief Brand Officer Stephanie McMahon welcomed the decision.
