Rene Dupree, who was as soon as a part of former WWE Tag Crew champions La Resistance, continues to be solely 37 and is working outdoors of WWE.
However again in 2003, he too had the possibility to work with Goldberg and he’s no fan of the four-time world champion both.
“Yeah he dislocated my collarbone,” Dupree revealed to the 90s Wrestling Podcast. “We (La Resistance) had a pre-tape within the again with Goldberg and he hit me with the French flag and we needed to do 5 takes. To at the present time, if I attempt to flex it, it nonetheless hurts. Yeah he’s the s***s. He’s horrible, many wrestlers will inform you that.”
And but, WWE signed him to a deal the place he works two instances a yr till 2023, so why is that?
“To me they (WWE) should be determined,” Dupree mentioned. “That’s the one factor I can determine. They will’t create new stars or they don’t have faith within the folks they’ve.”
Dupree has principally labored in Japan for All Japan Professional Wrestling, Wrestle-1 and Professional Wrestling NOAH since leaving WWE in 2007, however he wish to wrestle in North America once more extra repeatedly.
Would it not be with WWE although? Not essentially.
WWE is the worldwide showcase, and I may also not be scared as a result of there was quite a lot of instances of ‘I can hearth you Rene’ (John Laurinaitis voice) that wouldn’t scare me as a result of I do know there’s a world outdoors and I understand how to work that sport.
“So you may’t scare me with that bull***t anymore. However due to that, that may truly maintain me again as a result of they know they will’t f**ok with me that means.
“However I’d like to work in entrance of an American viewers viewers and a worldwide viewers once more, simply to indicate them I’m not the identical wrestler I used to be again then. I’m a hell of quite a bit higher.”
