Bret & Renee Dupree

Bret & Renee Dupree

I had the pleasure of hanging out with the great french Canadian sensation Rene Dupree.  He was schooled by his father, Emile Dupree, who was one of my all-time favorite wrestlers as a kid. He too was lucky enough to grow up watching the legendary Cormier family, The Beast Ivan, Leo, Rudy and Bobby Burke (all wrestling as the famous Burke Bros.), not to mention The Cuban Assassin and numerous other other Stampede Wrestling stalwarts. Rene was a huge fan favorite in France but still managed to show great versatility working in Ireland as a heel. Why the WWE let this talent go is a baffling mystery to me.
