Former WWE wrestler René Duprée has unpacked some horrendous allegations against The Undertaker in a new interview on That 90's Wrestling Podcast, claiming the wrestling icon once had the locker room urinate and defecate on his personal belongings.
Duprée, a two-time WWE/World Tag Team Champion, has spoken extensively on his experiences falling victim to the darker side of the company's backstage culture in the past. In this interview, he told a particularly repulsive story from a tour of Europe (h/t Inside The Ropes):-
“They took my $500 shoes and $1000 suit and ruined it in the shower because I didn’t go out drinking at a bar the night before because nobody invited me. That’s just materialistic sh*t you can replace that, that doesn’t bother me. What really bothered me is when in Italy the next night they took my French flag – my heritage – they shoved it in a toilet and p*ssed and sh*t all over it. I don’t know what bullsh*t world you live in but in my world that’s called racial discrimination. That was really hurtful.”
When Duprée approach road agent Arn Anderson about the situation, he received a less-than-helpful answer:-
“What I did do was I went to Arn Anderson who was the agent and I asked him – Arn’s advice to me was ‘Don’t sell it.’ I was like ok. The next person I went to was The Undertaker and I said ‘What do you do when someone does this to you?’ And he goes ‘Well you find out who does it.’ He ordered them to do that because I didn’t go out drinking with him and the guys at a bar.”
Duprée has previously alleged backstage harassment at the hands of John Bradshaw Layfield, Bob Holly, and others during his time in WWE. A 2013 RF Video shoot interview saw the Canadian claim he was subjected to homophobic abuse everytime he showed up for work.
Duprée, 37, worked for WWE between 2003 and 2007, debuting at just 20 years old. His most famous work came as part of La Résistance with Sylvain Grenier.
