Help(please) Hi, there Should I say “Whatever the thing he was holding WAS supposed to make up for my video game he broke” or “Whatever the thing he was holding WAS WAS supposed to make up for my video game he broke”? Thank you

Your first example doesn't make sense. In spoken language, you can use the second one (with "was was"). In writing, you would want to find a way to rephrase the sentence, because it sounds awkward with "was was." (In speech it sounds okay, because you can use intonation to clarify how "was was" makes sense, but in writing, the repetition looks strange.)
