Jacques Rougeau recently revealed that WWE Hall of Famer Hulk Hogan did not like The British Bulldogs (Davey Boy Smith and Dynamite Kid) during their time together in WWE. Hogan had been the top babyface of the company and gained some huge popularity in the 1980s and early 1990s. The British Bulldogs had issues outside the ring with alcohol and drugs. They also allegedly swore in front of fans. Is Brock Lesnar Really Suspended From WWE?
Jacques Rougeau reveals Hulk Hogan did not like the tag-team
Rougeau had a stint in WWE between 1986 and 1994. He recently told WSI’s James Romero that Hogan thought the demeanor of the tag team spoiled WWE’s image:
“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*** 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,” Rougeau said.
The British Bulldogs had a 294-day reign as WWE Tag Team Champions in 1986-1987. Davey Boy Smith passed away at the age of 39 in 2002, while Dynamite Kid died on his 60th birthday in 2018.
