WWE Legend The Mountie (Jacques Rougeau) recently appeared on an episode of SK Wrestling’s Inside SKoop with Dr. Chris Featherstone to discuss his professional wrestling career.
The gendarme spoke about his brother and former team partner, Raymond Rougeau, and the unforgettable moment the pair overcame The Hart Foundation for the WWE Tag Team Championship, even though the win ended up turning bittersweet:
“We won the belts, Raymond and I, but it was only for the Montreal territory, and there were like five thousand fans outside waiting for us. It was the greatest moment, I think, that Raymond and I have spent together in our twenty years of working as a team. I have to say it must have been one of the nicest nights. Unfortunately, they never saw it, neither on American television nor in the world. Because they came to TV on weekends and all Quebecers expect to see us as champions on TV. Then they saw the Hart Foundation, and they never even talked about it! Whether they lost, our victory or nothing!
The incident the Mountie is referring to took place when The Fabulous Rougeaus (Jacques and Raymond) won the WWE Tag Team Championship from the Hart Foundation, only to have the decision overturned due to interference from Jimmy hart.
The gendarme on his relationship with his brother
While the couple might not talk much these days, it’s clear that the Constable still has a lot of respect for her brother and former team partner:
“Oh my God… I could talk for just an hour about my brother Raymond. Where do I start? Chris, you know my brother and I haven’t talked in years. We have a family problem and a difference of opinion. Not who’s right or wrong, it’s just that we don’t think the same way… But Raymond has to be the best team (partner) I’ve ever worked with. As a worker, psychology, he also took care of himself in the ring. He could do that! … So all is well, so many memories. I could go (back) in the past with Raymond.
