• Old School WWF Veteran Celebrates His Birthday
Old School WWF Veteran “The Mountie” Jacques Rougeau celebrates his 59th birthday today.
Along with his real life brother Raymond Rougeau, Jacques joined the World Wrestling Federation in 1986 and together they were known as “The Fabulous Rougeaus”
When his brother Ray retired in 1990, Jacques was repackaged as “The Mountie” in early 1991, but was still managed by “The Mouth of the South” Jimmy Hart, who had already managed The Rougeau Brothers.
Despite a short run as the WWF Intercontinental Champion in early 1992, The Mountie left the WWF by the end of the year, only to return a few months later in July 1993, still dressed in a similar gear, only this time he had Pierre Ouellet by his side and together they became known as “The Quebecers”, a Tag Team that had a pretty good run with the WWF Tag Team Championship, which they won 3 times, before breaking up in the summer of 1994.
Together they joined Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling in 1996 as “The Amazing French Canadians” but returned for one last run to the WWF in 1998, before Jacques retired from professional wrestling.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOUNTIE!
• WWE Could Be Doing An Interesting Intercontinental Title Feud Next
As seen at WWE Super ShowDown 2019, “The Demon King” Finn Balor defeated Andrade to retain the Intercontinental Championship.
Balor’s next challenger for the Intercontinental Championship could be Shinsuke Nakamura.
Finn Balor vs. Shinsuke Nakamura was the SmackDown dark main event this week (after 205 Live went off the air) and WWE often tries their future plans during dark matches and Live Events.
