James From That 90’s Wrestling Podcast recently spoke to WWE ruthless aggression era star Rene Dupree.
During the interview:
James asked Rene on working with Goldberg and if he was unsafe in the Ring.
Rene: Yeah he dislocated my collarbone, we (La Resistance) had a pre-tape in the back with Goldberg and he hit me with the French flag and we had to do 5 takes and to this day if I try to flex it, it still hurts, yeah he’s the shits he’s horrible many wrestlers will tell you that.
James also asked Rene about wwe bringing Goldberg back and putting him in the title scene.
Rene: To me they (WWE) must be desperate, that’s the only thing I can figure, they can’t create new stars or they don’t have confidence in the people they have.
James also asked Rene about the possibility of him returning to WWE.
Rene: Depends on what day you ask me, (laughing) I don’t give a shit who you are, that roar of the crowd is the most addicting adrenaline pumping experience you could ever have,
And I know the ribbing and the bullying that bullshit doesn’t happen anymore,
But there has to be a reason why guys are turning down half a million dollar a year deals,
Because I don’t really talk to anyone that’s there (WWE) but on the outside looking in, and all these guys that’s all in love with wrestling that are willing to turn down that type of money I can understand that too.
But at 37 years of age I don’t know how many years I have left, and I am in the prime of my career, ya know when I first left there I wanted to accomplish stuff outside of WWE as a wrestler to gain respect, and nearly 60 tours of Japan, main eventing all over the world, main eventing sold out arena’s all over the world, I kinda like to think I’ve earned that respect from my peers, and honestly WWE is the worldwide showcase, and I will also not be scared because there was a lot of times of “I can fire you Rene” (John Laurinaitis voice) that wouldn’t scare me because I know there’s a world outside and I know how to work that game so you can’t scare me with that bullshit anymore, but because of that, that might actually hold me back because they know they can’t f*#k with me that way (laughing),
But I would love to work in front of an American audience audience again and a worldwide audience again just to show them (WWE) I’m not the same wrestler I was back then I’m a hell of a lot better.
