"Bonne Nuit."

In 2007, Rene debuted in HUSTLE defeating TAJIRI in his debut and renaming himself Rene Bonaparte, playing an elegant French nobleman. He aligned himself with MONSTER Army and feuded with HUSTLE’s main hero, Wataru Sakata, over his wife, Eiko. This led to a match where the winner would take Eiko as his wife but the match ended in a no contest due to disqualification. Rene Gogeun made his last appearance as the Rene Bonaparte character in HUSTLE in 2008 after being defeated by Toshiaki Kawada in the Grand Prix Tournament. Rene returned later teaming with Lance Cade as the masked duo of the Sharpe Brothers, claiming they were both cloned from Larry Sharpe, but the team soon folded after being defeated at HUSTLEMania 2008. Rene Bonaparte made his return to HUSTLE on the 4.23 show forming a team with Lance Cade and Francoise as the Texas Napoleons. The duo had a big winning streak in the upcoming months, before cade departed. Bonaparte once again donned a new costume and gimmick as he and Travis Tomko debuted as Armageddon at the 6.25 show (see the stunning masked image above). Rene Dupree left the MONSTER Army after breaking his contract with Francoise and soon joined the HUSTLE Army........
