In September, Paquette talked about leaving WWE on the Sports Illustrated Media Podcast. "I don't know if there was a definitive 'I'm leaving now' [moment]," Young said. "Backstage got canceled, I got COVID, a lot of s— just kind of happened... I'm at home, I get my diagnosis, that same day I found out that Backstage gets canceled. But it was really with Backstage being canceled that I was like, 'What am I doing? I'm not really doing anything anymore and my skill set of being a host, there's just nowhere for me to do it anymore."

Paquette and Moxley began dating in 2013 and got married in 2017. Moxley left WWE once his contract expired and has gone on to be the No. 1 wrestler in the world, according to Pro Wrestling Illustrated. Paquette was doing a number of different things for WWE on the broadcast side and decided it was time for her to move on.
"It was all that stuff happening at once and just being like, 'What am I doing here? I've checked off all the things I've been able to do.' Stepping away from commentary ultimately left kind of a bad taste in my mouth," Young stated. "So going to working for FOX was incredible, and I'll still be doing stuff for FOX as we're kind of figuring out what that looks like with WWE and FOX."
