Iraq-WWE Security News, Plans For WM21, Even More On Holly-Dupree

Ryan Clark


– The SmackDown brands recent trip to Iraq last week was said to have gone smoother than last time. Security was very tight and it made everyone feel very safe given the area they were in. Both talent and staff from WWE had their own separate quarters to sleep in during the trip.

– As we noted before on the site, plans for WrestleMania 21 will more than likely see Randy Orton face Triple H, while John Cena looks like the candidate to face JBL. Although these look to be the plans, it doesn’t mean Orton or Cena will win the Royal Rumble in January as a simple storyline stipulation could change things if need be.

– To add on the highly documented situation between Hardcore Holly and Rene Dupree, it appears Dupree told Holly that he knew he was upset with him regarding the situation with a traffic ticket and gave him full permission to take it out on him if it would make him feel better. Holly obviously took him up on the offer, but took it too far in the eyes of many within the company. But given Dupree’s invitation to do so, it could have been a major contributor to McMahon not firing Holly. It should be noted that Dupree has yet to follow up on any of his promises to Holly regarding the situation.
