René Dupreé shoot: in short: JBL is a twat

Discussion in 'General WWE' started by Stopspot, Mar 14, 2014.



  1. Dupreé has some interesting things to say about the locker room situation back then.
     
  2. By all accounts, he is a dick. Mark Henry said on a radio show a few years ago that JBL bullied him backstage when he joined the roster.
     
  3. Edge claims that JBL touched him in the showers when he first joined as well.
     
  4. Its soooo long though
    Show Spoiler

  8. The entire history of pro-graps is also the history of harassing, insulting and mental torturing, especially for young guys. That's just the way it is, especially in the old(er) days. It separates tough guys who truly want to make it from quitters.
     
  9. Who's the guy on the screen talking? Looks like a 'Nick Fury, Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D.' rip off(and I'm talking about **the** Nick Fury, aka Sgt. Fury & His Howling Commandos, Nick Fury. *Not* some bald headed 'pc' dude.
     
  10. Let me get this straight:

    A guy who had a relatively short career in the WWE gave a "shoot" interview in which he basically called a multi-time, highly successful, future WWE Hall of Famer a twat.

    What did he have to say about Vince?

    And, okay, maybe JBL gave him the same treatment he got when he broke in down in Dallas. Word around the water cooler is that he did that to a lot of guys (Mark Henry, Miz, and Jericho have all talked specifically about Layfield....and gotten heat for it, because what happens in the locker room stays in the locker room.....in case you've never been part of an athletic venture) and the reason he got away with it is that he's a legitimate badass who can kick the shit out of most of the guys in the locker room (at least he could when he was in his prime) and he was backed up by guys like Undertaker and Ron Simmons, who came up in very similar situations (Taker came up in Dallas just like Layfield did, so....). I hate to break it to people who aren't aware of this, but you are all going to get bullied in life...and you're going to bully other people. That's the way human beings are. You'll see it (and do it) in the workplace, in the church/house of faith you join, in your social circles, everywhere you go. Bullying is as much a part of the human condition as conflict.

  11. As mentioned, for as long as pro wrestling has been around, there's been bullying and harassing of young guys as a way of seeing whether they'll "fit in" or not. New guys sometimes get bullied backstage to see how much mental abuse they can take and they also sometimes get stiffed big time in the ring to see how physically tough they are. Hell, Bill Watts back in UWF used to make his wrestlers get on the ground on all fours and remain there while he kicked them really hard in the ribs just to see how tough and resilient they were. (This lead to a big confrontation with the Ultimate Warrior back then when Warrior refused and said that Watts would have to put him down there himself, which he didn't.)

    Let's not forget that Hardcore Holly is a pretty bad culprit of this as well. His abuse of Matt Cappotelli on Tough Enough 3 is well documented. He tried to sandbag Brock Lesnar of all people and got himself seriously injured by being accidentally dropped on his head for doing so. And speaking of Rene, Hardcore Holly once kicked the shit out of him for real in front of a live audience. I don't know if Rene is mentions this in the shoot or not, but he once borrowed Hardcore Holly's rental car, got a speeding ticket for it, and then didn't bother to show up in court, which lead to Hardcore beating his ass for real in the middle of the ring. And although HHH said in an interview that he felt Holly should have been fired for that, Bob himself claims that Vince told him in private that he would have done the same thing. Just like Vince (the one in charge of this whole carnival act) once told the APA to stiff the fuck out of the Public Enemy in the ring. The Public Enemy came in with an ego about themselves, they supposedly refused to job, they disrespected the locker room, and so they were "punished" for it in the ring:



    They ended up leaving (or getting fired) a week after this.
     


  12. Up until he got his clock cleaned out by Joey Styles.

    He tried bullying Styles during the tribute to the troops tour in like 06-07. Ended up being put down with one punch once Styles had enough.

    I think that was when JBL's bullying stopped (or at least stopped getting out in the public).

    Karma.

    True it's part of the human condition to hurt people but for those who know better won't do it and dont do it.
     
  15. You have a much greater faith in human beings than I do.
