Jacques Rougeau on his brother Raymond: “We haven’t spoken in 6 or 7 years”

Jacques Rougeau was interviewed this week on the Two Man Power Trip of Wrestling podcast.

The WWE Legend talks about his wrestling career and his new podcast called “Jacques Rougeau Podcast: Father and Son.”

Jacques also talks about his run as the Intercontinental Champion, multiple reigns as WWF Tag Team Champion and he talks about the time he pinned Hulk Hogan clean in Canada.

Here are some highlights from the interview:

Jacques Rougeau talked about his relationship with his brother Raymond:  “We haven’t spoken in 6 or 7 years. He doesn’t brag about it. Neither do I. It’s ok because it happens in every family. Don’t think it’s only in the Rougeau family where two brothers fight. It happens. The funniest thing is I’m smart enough to know that it’s not who’s right and who’s wrong. It’s just different opinions.  Sometimes you don’t see eye to eye and instead of sticking around and growling at each other, you sometimes go your separate ways.  Now when we meet, I met him at a Comic-Con, they asked me if I would mind if Raymond comes with me. I said, no, I don’t mind. I haven’t spoken to him in 7 years. He sat beside me. I said how are you doing?  He said hi. I had Carl Oullett on one side for the Quebecers to sign. I had Raymond on the other side, The Fabulous Rougeaus to sign, and I was also there as the Mountie. I had one on each side. I was doing the 3 characters, changing my hat to my suit for every picture and we had a good time. There was no animosity.  We didn’t hug each other or anything, but we were respectful gentlemen and I can live with that. After we left the Comic-Con, we haven’t spoken again.”

Jacques spoke about being WWE Tag Team Champions for a day and then it was taken away and not acknowledged:  “Oh, what can I say. Politics, politics, politics. I don’t think I’m going to get into that one. To be honest with you, I think we were kept on a hope leash. It’s like when I won the Intercontinental title. I had it for two days or three days. I think Vince has something about Quebecers being champions. That was the same for Martel and Bravo and everybody else. I think honestly we deserved a little run, whether it would have been for 2 or 3 months, me and Raymond, because we gave them 4 years of our time and I think we gave them great matches. Even when we were babyfaces, we weren’t drawing any money but we were sure entertaining the people that were already in the house. When we became the Fabulous Rougeau Brothers with Jimmy Hart as our manager, we started drawing people.”
