WWE veteran Jacques Rougeau has revealed why WWE Hall Of Famer Hulk Hogan had major issues with iconic tag team The British Bulldogs.
Rougeau revealed on an appearance on WSI that The Immortal Hulk Hogan had a real issue with the way that former WWF Tag Team Champions The British Bulldogs – Davey Boy Smith and The Dynamite Kid – chose to act in public and says he didn’t like the image of WWF the Englishmen were portraying:
“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 five in the morning, coming out of bars drunk. ‘Urgh, f*ck 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.”
Jacques Rougeau had his own issues with Dynamite Kid over the years and these were chronicled during an episode of the documentary series Dark Side Of The Ring. After suffering from bullying at the hands of Kid, Rougeau sucker-punched the star with a roll of quarters in the locker room, knocking out several of Kid’s teeth.
According to Rougeau, fighting back in this way earned him the respect of Hulk Hogan:
“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.”
