• Reason Behind Hulk Hogan Having Issues With A WWF Tag Team
During a recent appearance on WSI, Old School WWF Veteran Jacques Rougeau revealed that Hulk Hogan wasn’t a fan of how The British Bulldogs (Davey Boy Smith and The Dynamite Kid) conducted themselves in public.
Here’s what Rougeau said:
“I never was told by Hulk, but I was told by other people around him, but Hulk did not like the way the Bulldogs were giving the image of the WWF, showing up at 5 in the morning, coming out of bars drunk. ‘Urgh, f**k that’ – talking like that obnoxiously in an airport where there are kids and everybody.
And Hulk was the guy who gave autographs and always trying to keep the reputation and tried to do what he could. So I think there was a dislike there between the Bulldogs and Hulk.”
Dynamite Kid bullied Rougeau and this led to Rougeau knocking out Dynamite’s teeth with a punch.
After this incident, Rougeau feels he earned the Hulkster’s respect:
“When I did my comeback on Dynamite and I stopped the bullying for a while in the WWF, I think Hulk grew respect for me.
What I heard is he thought it took a lot of balls to do what I did, and a lot of guys would like to have done it but they never did. So Hulk took a big liking to me then personally.”
