Rene Dupree claims The Undertaker ordered WWE Superstars to put his possessions in a toilet so they could urinate and defecate on them.
It’s not really a secret that wrestling has a dark past. The drug use, its treatment of women, even many of those in the industry dying at a very young age. What’s shocking is, for the most part, a blind eye has been turned to that past. However, in the present day, a spotlight is being shone on that past, and in some cases, action is being taken, even if it is far later than it should have been.
Shining A Light On Wrestling’s Dark Side
The return of Dark Side of the the Ring last week has already landed a couple of people in hot water. Ric Flair for his alleged actions towards a flight attendant on WWE’s Plane Ride From Hell, and Tommy Dreamer for his defense of the way Flair apparently acted on that flight.
On the back of that episode, some new accusations about the way The Undertaker acted backstage have come to light. Rene Dupree, who wrestled in WWE from 2002 until 2007, appeared on That ’90s Wrestling Podcast, revealing how he was treated on a European Tour while with the company. Treatment that apparently stemmed from him not going to a bar with other wrestlers even though he was never actually invited.

Desecrating A National Flag
Dupree claims his suit and shoes were put in the shower, ruining them, but that’s not what bothered him. It was what they did to his French flag, something he held dear being French Canadian, that really hurt. Apparently, the day after he didn’t go to the bar, Dupree found his flag in a toilet with “p*ss and sh*t all over it”, at which point he reported what he had found to Arn Anderson who was an agent in WWE at the time.
Anderson’s advice to Dupree was “don’t sell it”, a phrase that has come up a lot over the last few days. Dupree then took his issues to The Undertaker, at which point he claims to have discovered he was the one who had ordered others to do what they did to Dupree’s possessions. “He ordered them to do that because I didn’t go out drinking with him and the guys at a bar ,” Dupree said. Dupree has made other accusations against those he shared a locker room with in WWE in the past, including allegations that JBL and Bob Holly made homophobic comments to him on a regular basis.
