Hannibal TV recently spoke to former WWE Tag Team Champion and ‘La Resistance’ member Rene Dupree to discuss his singles feud with John Cena at the beginning of the ‘Leader Of The Cenation’s’ singles competitor run. You can check out some highlights here:

If he worked with Cena before, prior to their feud in WWE:

“Not really. We worked together in OVW once. Constant professional, if I was the promoter that’s the kind of guy I would want in that spot.”

Did he know that Cena would become the mega-star he is today:

“I could tell yeah, that’s a guy that they could trust, that’s the guy that’s well spoken, he looks like a million — he’s a star. Yeah, I could tell.”

Was Cena the kind of guy to call spots during matches:

“I called everything. I called everything.”

Why some people boo Cena today as opposed to when everybody loved him during their feud:

“Because I was a heel. I can get people to hate me. I’m not trying to do fancy moves, I’m there to build him, that’s my job. That’s what’s kind of lacking in this day and age.”
