• WWE Once Punished Kane For Voicing His Opinion
As we reported earlier, former WWE wrestler Renee Dupree revealed on his podcast that Vince McMahon punished one-legged wrestler Zach Gowen for smoking backstage at WWE events.
Vince booked Brock Lesnar to destroy Zach during their match, right in front of Zach’s mother.
Below is what Dupree said:
“What I had heard is that he was caught smoking cigarettes backstage.
If you’ve ever been backstage at a WWE show, Vince has ‘no smoking’ signs all over the building.
Remember that segment where Brock bashes his f**king brains in with that Steel Chair in front of his own mother? That was punishment right there.”
Dupree further revealed that WWE Hall Of Famer Kane was punished in a similar way as well:
“I remember Kane voicing his opinion backstage being frustrated talking to [Head of WWE Talent Relations John Laurinaitis].
Right after that he started that program with Shane (McMahon). Kane would come back (with) kendo stick marks, bruised, every single night, and they had to work the program for what was it? Like two months.”
