The Undertaker is without a doubt among the greatest and most well-known wrestlers of all time. The Undertaker’s gimmick as the Deadman is one of the most popular gimmicks in the pro wrestling industry, and has been an influential figure in the industry.
Having a career spanning three decades, The Undertaker has been responsible for the company’s development during the 90s, The Attitude Era and the Ruthless Aggression Era. A solid in ring performer, The Deadman gave some of the best matches in the history of WWE.
The Undertaker retired in 2020 and was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2022. He is certainly as someone to look up to and inspiration for today’s youngsters. Rene Dupree recently discussed the advice he received from the Undertaker on the most recent episode of the Café de Rene podcast. Rene claimed that Taker advised him to be selfish for the right reasons a year after his debut.
Dupree said that he had never forgotten the advice of the Taker and that he now fully comprehends what he meant. He said that he is now in a position to put the advice into practice. Dupree claimed that he now knows when it is OK to be selfish and when it is not.
“He once sat with me, I was 20. He said ‘Rene, in this business you gotta be selfish for the right reasons. I thought for years that I might know what he was talking about, and I never forgot that……So now where I’m at I gotta be selfish for the right reasons, meaning you are your own business, Rene Dupree is my business, so I gotta be selfish for me.”

Rene Dupree had accused the Undertaker of ordering other wrestlers to bully him
On a recent episode of his podcast, Rene Dupree mentioned that The Undertaker had offered him some solid advice, but in 2021, he also claimed that The Undertaker had given orders for other wrestlers to bully him. Renee Dupree stated in 2021 on That ’90s Wrestling Podcast that several wrestlers stole his $1,000 suit and $500 shoes and damaged them in the shower since he didn’t go out for drinking with them the previous night because no one had invited him.
Although Rene claimed that the suit and shoes thing didn’t affect him since they are purely materialistic, the fact that his national flag, the French flag, was placed in the bathroom with poop and s**t all over it did affect him. Dupree referred to it as racial discrimination, which was extremely upsetting to him. Arn Anderson, who Dupree said he visited, gave him the advice not to respond to it and ignore, he claimed.
Dupree continued by saying that he went to the Undertaker, who instructed him to learn more about the perpetrator, and that was the time he discovered that the Deadman was the culprit and had given the wrestlers the order to commit this repulsive deed. He insisted that the reason he was punished was because he didn’t go out drinking with the other guys at the pub.

The next person I went to was The Undertaker and I said ‘What do you do when someone does this to you? And he goes ‘Well you find out who does it. He ordered them to do that because I didn’t go out drinking with him and the guys at a bar.”
