Emile Dupree Passes

by | Sep 17, 2023 | WWE News | 0 comments

Wrestler and promoter Emile Duprée, known in the wrestling world as an often overlooked Canadian pro-wrestling icon, has passed away at the age of 86. The news of his passing was confirmed by Ron Hutchinson in a tribute posted on Facebook.

Emile Duprée, whose real name was Emile Goguen, embarked on his wrestling career in the 1950s. His legacy continued through his son Renee, who made his WWE debut in 2003 and went on to become a World Tag Team Champion.

During the 1970s, Duprée made significant contributions to the wrestling landscape by founding ‘Grand Prix Wrestling’ in Canada. This wrestling territory remained active until the mid-1980s when Vince McMahon’s WWF expansion reshaped the wrestling industry.

Our thoughts go out to Emile Duprée’s family and all those who knew him during this somber time. His impact on Canadian pro wrestling will be remembered and cherished by fans and fellow wrestlers alike.
