Timeline
Learn about memorable moments in the evolution of Jacques Rougeau
    THIRTIES
  • 2000
    Age 39
    Rougeau and Ouellet briefly reunited in WCW in 2000 in Lance Storm's Team Canada.
    More Details Hide Details After retiring, Rougeau attempted to join the Montreal Police Department, but was unable to do so as he had not graduated from high school. He is now a public speaker, touring schools to speak on drugs, smoking, and bullying. Rougeau also opened the Rougeau Wrestling School in Montreal. Rougeau was married. His wife died of lung cancer in 2009. He has three sons. His nephew is former NHL star Denis Gauthier.
  • 1998
    Age 37
    In 1998, Rougeau returned to the WWF for a final run teaming once again with Pierre Ouellet in an updated version of The Quebecers.
    More Details Hide Details The team lasted for a few months.
  • 1997
    Age 36
    Rougeau would also team up with his brother, Ray Rougeau (who at the time was a commentator, announcer and host for the French-produced WWF programming) alongside Ouellet in a dark match for WWF Shotgun Saturday Night in 1997.
    More Details Hide Details The Rougeaus alongside Ouellet would come up with the victory against the team of Adam Copeland, Shawn Stasiak, and Tom Brandi.
    In 1997, Jacques joined a select few when he cleanly defeated Hollywood Hogan in a singles match at the Molson Centre in Montreal.
    More Details Hide Details On the "Right After Wrestling" program on Sirius Satellite Radio Channel 98, Jacques told hosts Arda Ocal and Jimmy Korderas that Hogan put him over because of his respect for the Rougeau family name and for keeping a clean wrestling image. On Colt Cabana's Art of Wrestling podcast, Rougeau's former student, Kevin Steen stated that there is a rumor that Hogan laid down for Rougeau due to an additional $10,000 payment. Also, Rougeau said that he paid and organized the show, so it was a Jacques Rougeau show, not a WCW show. Rougeau's pinfall victory was rarely referenced by WCW in order to protect Hogan's image.
  • 1996
    Age 35
    Beginning on September 9, 1996, Rougeau and Ouellet went on to team again as The Amazing French Canadians in World Championship Wrestling.
    More Details Hide Details
  • 1994
    Age 33
    The match, which was held on October 21, 1994, drew a sell-out crowd of 16,843 to the Montreal Forum, and resulted in a victory for Jacques, when he pinned Pierre following a seated tombstone piledriver.
    More Details Hide Details Jacques, who was accompanied by Raymond, used Queen's song "We Are the Champions" as his theme music for the night.
    The Quebecers broke up at a house show held at the Montreal Forum on June 25, 1994.
    More Details Hide Details After a loss to The Headshrinkers, Pierre and Polo turned on Rougeau. After a few minutes of Jacques being attacked in front of his hometown crowd, Raymond Rougeau (who by this point was an announcer for the WWF's French-language broadcasts) ran to the ring to save his brother. This angle led to Rougeau's first retirement match, which, over the next few months, was heavily promoted on WWF TV shows broadcast in the Montreal area, as well as in the local media.
  • 1992
    Age 31
    After losing to then WWF World Heavyweight Champion Bret Hart in thirty seconds on October 26, 1992, Rougeau left the WWF. Jacques returned to the WWF in July 1993 and went on to hold the WWF Tag Team Championship on three occasions as part of The Quebecers tag team with Pierre Ouellet, feuding with The Steiner Brothers, Men on a Mission, The Headshrinkers, and Marty Jannetty and The 1-2-3 Kid.
    More Details Hide Details The Quebecers characters were an extension of the earlier Mountie-theme, albeit with a more casual costume and an emphasis on bullying behavior. The pair (who were managed by Johnny Polo) emphasized their detachment from the earlier Mountie controversy by using a doctored version of Jacques's second Mountie theme song, entitled "We're Not The Mounties". Jacques participated in the main event of the 1993 Survivor Series as a member of the "Foreign Fanatics" team. at Royal rumble, The Quebecers defeated Bret Hart and Owen Hart by referee stoppage to retain the WWF Tag Team Championship. at WrestleMania X, The Quebecers faced Men on a Mission with the WWF Tag Team Championship which they retained the titles after getting counted out. they would lose the titles to Men on a Mission at a live event on March 29, 1994 in London, England before winning them back on March 31 at another live event. they lost the titles again to The Headshrinkers on the April 26 edition of Raw and the team split up soon after.
    The Mountie's greatest achievement as a singles wrestler came when he won the WWF Intercontinental Heavyweight Championship in an upset over Bret Hart on January 17, 1992. In the storyline, Hart was suffering from the flu (Hart was actually going through contract negotiations). The Mountie lost the title just two days later to Rowdy Roddy Piper at the 1992 Royal Rumble, in what was the shortest Intercontinental Heavyweight Championship reign in history for several years.
    More Details Hide Details The Mountie received a rematch at Saturday Night's Main Event, but when he attempted to use his shock stick, it had no effect as Piper was wearing a rubber vest under his T-shirt. Piper removed his shirt after the match to reveal the vest, which was labeled "Shock Proof". Piper would go on to win the match after he used the shock stick on The Mountie. For the next several months, The Mountie would primarily appear in the undercard. He was on the losing end of an eight-man tag team match at WrestleMania VIII and a six-man tag team match at SummerSlam. He also had a feud with Sgt. Slaughter after shocking him with an extra large cattle prod on an episode of Superstars, though the subsequent matches all took place on house shows, with no conclusion to the feud on television.
  • 1991
    Age 30
    The Mountie began a feud with The Big Boss Man after declaring that he was the sole legitimate law enforcer in the WWF, and on August 26, 1991, he spent a night in prison (kayfabe) after Bossman defeated him in a Jailhouse Match at SummerSlam.
    More Details Hide Details At Survivor Series, Mountie teamed with Ric Flair, Ted DiBiase and The Warlord to defeat Roddy Piper, Bret Hart, Virgil and Davey Boy Smith in a four-on-four Survivor Series elimination match.
    In his pay-per-view debut, he defeated Koko B. Ware at the 1991 Royal Rumble.
    More Details Hide Details He gained another major victory at WrestleMania VII, defeating Tito Santana after using the shock stick.
    The Mountie made his in-ring debut in January 1991.

  • TWENTIES
  • 1990
    Age 29
    Ray Rougeau retired in early 1990, and Jacques departed the Federation for a year before returning as The Mountie, once again a client of manager Jimmy Hart.
    More Details Hide Details The Mountie was a corrupt, cattle prod-wielding member of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police who would often boast that he "always gets his man" in the ring. The cattle prod came into play as part of The Mountie's post-match gimmick, where he would (in kayfabe) "shock" his defeated opponents in the stomach. The storyline behind the image change was that Jacques Rougeau had actually gone through the training to become a Mountie to wield authority. The character was eventually the subject of litigation in Canada, leading to Rougeau being enjoined from performing as The Mountie in his home country. Thus, while wrestling in Canada, he was billed using only his real name and did not wear his Mountie-inspired hat and jacket to the ring, although he did retain other parts of his costume such as red shirt, black pants, and boots. In fact, the commentary team who announced the match would often say, "This man does NOT represent the Royal Canadian Mounted Police!"
  • 1987
    Age 26
    Jacques and Raymond upset The Hart Foundation for the titles at the Montreal Forum on August 10, 1987 but the championship was returned three days later since the challengers won the match after using Jimmy Hart's megaphone as a weapon.
    More Details Hide Details The title win was never mentioned on American TV. After two years in the Federation, The Fabulous Rougeaus turned heel when they participated in an angle in which the Canadian brothers were announced as "From Canada, but soon to relocate to the United States", and had an intentionally annoying entrance theme in which they sang (partly in French) about being "All-American Boys" as well as now having Jimmy Hart as their manager (The Rougeaus were also briefly billed as being from Memphis, Jimmy Hart's home city). They also waved tiny American flags, infuriating fans, who questioned their sincerity. Also, they would humorously attempt to start "USA!" chants, which led to further negative fan "heat". According to Jacques, the widespread antipathy of American fans inspired Vince McMahon to turn them into villains. They would feud with The Killer Bees, The Hart Foundation (who had turned face in between), The Bushwhackers, and The Rockers during their heel run.
  • 1986
    Age 25
    Jacques along with Raymond Rougeau made his WWF debut in February 1986 during a tour of Australia.
    More Details Hide Details They teamed together as The Fabulous Rougeaus. During their first year with the company they faced and defeated such duos as The Hart Foundation (Bret Hart and Jim Neidhart), The Moondogs, Jimmy Jack and Dory Funk, Jr., and The Dream Team (Greg Valentine and Brutus Beefcake). Although they lost their match at WrestleMania III in 1987 to Valentine and Beefcake they did win the WWF Tag Team Titles later that year, albeit briefly.
  • 1985
    Age 24
    In the 1980s he began wrestling in the United States, achieving success in Alabama and Tennessee, and in 1985 he and Ray were signed by the World Wrestling Federation.
