– WWE Legend Jacque Rougeau spoke with Great North Wrestling about winning the WWF Tag Team Titles in Montreal back in the 80’s, which WWE has erased from history.
Jacques, along with his brother Raymond, defeated Bret Hart and Jim Neidhart at the Montreal Forum in front of 15,000 fans. The victory was reported in the newspapers and on news broadcasts in Montreal, but was never mentioned by the company on television.
“Three days later, they [WWE] changed the titles back [to the Hart Foundation]. They did a screwjob in Montreal. It was just for the fans that were there that night, it was like giving them candy… then on the TV show on the weekend, it was the Harts that were champions, and they never mentioned that we won the titles in Montreal. I think they should have never done it, because it kind of upset the people in Montreal.”
