In any case, I was marking like a BEE-YOTCH because I thought that it WAS RENE DUPRE.

It turns out that it probably WAS NOT RENE DUPRE, but a local indy wrestler named "SLY" Grenier, who as it turns out BREW and I saw at an indy show the night before, where he was making people's lives miserable with all of his "I'm going to the (W)WWF boasting."
It's ok, man. I went to No Mercy with a Mattitude sign and saw neither hide nor hair of him. I was as disappointed then as you are now, but you know what? It's how we deal with life's little disappointments that makes us who we are and enables us to persevere in the end.

What can I tell you, Llakor - listening to the commentators helps. Cole said it a few times and Meltzer's recap helped me make sure I spelled his last name right. (I'm sure that Sly could be short for Sylvain just as easily as it is for Sylvester...but Cole called him Sylvain every time.)
EDIT: Err, why isn't all this ITVR talk taking place over on ITVR, guys?
Originally posted by Tod deKindesI've worked with the guy once. Nothing exceptional.
His punches miss by six inches and he looks stiff. But hey, I'm sure Vince loves him!
He's also very young and supposed to have LOADS of potential, as in "absolute can't miss" potential. I'm sure WWE's going to take their sweet time with Dupree and I don't blame them at all. I don't hear "the next Ric Flair" thrown around very often, so SOMEBODY must be pretty high on him.
I'm surprised nobody mention yet that Silvain Grenier is a protege of Rocky Sr... That's right folks, Rocky Johnson sent his prize student to help his son screw over Hulk Hogan! He's TURNED HEEL without even being on TV or mentioned in any storylines! WHOOOOO! Rocky (Johnson)! Rocky (Johnson)! Rocky (Johnson)!
Sorry to tell you you're wrong, but Grenier (known as Sly, when he wrestles) is NOT Rene Dupre. Dupre came from the same region as Grenier, but if they are the same person, then explain to me how Grenier is currently wrestling in Montreal... while Dupre is down in Ohio at OVW.
They'll both be great talents for the future, if word of mouth means anything.
Royal Rumble 1999 was one of my favorites. We got Vince on the mic doing commentary for a while and then he went on to win. What more could you ask for when the owner of the company puts himself over AND it was what was best for the company at the time.
