• Former WWE Wrestler Had A “Real” Brawl With John Cena
During a recent edition of his Cafe de Rene podcast, former WWE wrestler Rene Dupree talked about a brawl segment with John Cena back in the day.
On the April 29, 2004 episode of SmackDown, Dupree and Cena landed some real shots because WWE Officials wanted the brawl to look really physical.
Below is what Dupree said:
“I remember we were being told by Fit Finlay and the other agents that the physicality between me and John Cena afterwards when he made the save had to look real. And let me tell you, it was as real as it can be.
I busted his eyebrow open, he was bleeding, and he busted my lip, and I think I had a bruise somewhere on my face. Those were live rounds.”
Rene Dupree wrestled in WWE from 2003 to 2007. He held the WWE Tag Team Title and the World Tag Team Title during his time in the company.
