Veteran French announcers Ray Rougeau and Jean Brassard have officially left the WWE.
Jean Brassard broke the news on April 8th when he posted to Twitter, revealing their departure was “due to restructuring” via Peacock and the WWE Network.
“My heart is heavy having to share that due to restructuring via the Peacock Network, Raymond Rougeau and I are no longer commenting for WWE as of today. Thank you for all these wonderful years! I will continue to entertain you one way or another!”

Rougeau and Brassard began working the headset together from 1994-1999 before their contract ended. Rougeau had also worked between the ropes, winning the Tag Team Championships with his brother, Jacques.
The Fabulous Rougeaus faced and defeated teams such as The Hart Foundation and The Dream Team – Brutus Beefcake and Greg Valentine. Raymond Rougeau then commentated with Phillipe Hartman from 2000-2002, whilst his brother became one half of the Quebecers. He found himself in several different roles throughout the years, including time as an on-screen interviewer.
While Rougeau found success within the WWE, Brassard found a variety of acting roles. He appeared in films and TV shows such as; Death In Love, Stake Land, and The Fault In Our Stars. WWE brought the veteran French Announcers back in 2017 to work the French Commentary for the WWE Network.
