Former WWE Superstar Jacques Rougeau has recalled being pushed too far by Rick Steiner and launching an apple attack on the dog-faced gremlin in the locker room.
Rougeau had been a long-time member of the WWE roster throughout the eighties and early nineties both portraying The Mountie and teaming with his brother Ray. After a short hiatus, Rougeau returned to the company in 1993 to team with Pierre Ouellet [today best known as PCO] as The Quebecers.
Speaking to WSI Jacques Rougeau revealed that he had some problems with some people in the locker room in 1993. Rougeau told the story of hearing then WWF Tag Team Champion Rick Steiner badmouthing Rougeau to Shawn Michaels. Steiner then threw a peanut at Rougeau causing the Quebecer to lose it and launch an attack back at Steiner:
“I lost it. My two wires must have touched each other. I grabbed an apple on the table and I just turned around and I full swinged it like a fast baseball and I shot it right to his face. When it got to his face, it hit a pole right in the middle, a small pole.”
“Don’t ask me how that happened! The apple hit the pole and exploded really hard in front of him. I looked at him like, ‘F*ck you, what the f*ck?’ Everybody just looked at us and then it died down. Those are altercations that I’m not proud of.”
Jacques Rougeau then explained the reason that Steiner was not happy with The Quebecers – the French Canadian duo was to win the WWF Tag Team Championship from The Steiners:
“Well, it was pretty simple. Carl [Pierre] and I, we came in for the first night in Manhattan for Monday Night RAW. It was our first time as The Quebecers, first night in the dressing room, and Vince [McMahon] wanted us to take the titles from the Steiners, and they were very, very upset with that.”
