There have been plenty of words backwards and forwards between Rene Dupree and Bubba Ray Dudley recently, mainly surround how the latter acts towards certain opponents in the ring.
Dudley’s comments came on a recent episode of Busted Open Radio, where he discussed alongside Dave LaGreca and Mark Henry how things got “too real” inside the squared circle on one particular occasion in WWE.
The WWE Hall of Famer spoke of how he was to work with behind the scenes, saying that any disagreements were always business and never personal. Dudley then went in to what happened with La Resistance’s Sylvain Grenier:
So one night in the ring, it was that time and me and D-Von just started laying it in a little bit. Then we come back through the curtain and one of the La Resistance guys goes to me [In French accent] ‘Urgh, what are you shooting on me for?! Don’t you know I am green?’ So I smacked him in his face.
In response to this statement, Renee Dupree has given his take on the issue via his Cafe de Rene podcast.
Blubber Ray Dudley is the real live version of Eric Cartman. If he doesn’t get his way. He bitches and moans and whines like a child. Understand, when he said that La Resistance was the sh*ts and they were green. The Dudley boys had one set match, one routine that they did over and over and over again.
Right. It wasn’t your standard psychology, it was smoke and mirrors. It was working for pops, as we say, okay, they had some gaga, and the exclamation point was what? D-von get the tables. SOS – Same old sh*t, that’s why they were there for five years. Understand. Yeah, you couldn’t tell blubber.
Dupree went on to explain what the nail in the coffin was for the multiple-time Tag Team Champion.
Mark (Bully Ray) can only have – if you were to say ‘Mark 20 minutes, this guy over a sunset flip,’ he wouldn’t know whether to wind his ass or scratch his watch. He does not know how to do that, I can do that. Yeah, in my first five or 600 matches in the arenas we had separate locker rooms, working for my dad, that’s the way I learned.
The problem with Mark is that he’s just that he’s a mark, he’s a mark for himself, his ego cost him more opportunities than anything. And he knows it. And what he did the Sly (Sylvain Grenier), punched him in the mouth, bloodied his nose.
And then when Sly calmly said “Hey man come on, take it easy” [Bubba] slapped him across the face.
That was his nail in his coffin. You know why? Because Sly was Pat Patterson’s boy. Yeah. So that’s all I have to say about that.
