Famed retired wrestler and Montreal native Jacques Rougeau recently made a Facebook post begging people to band together to get his family inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame. Jacques has noticed that the Rougeau name is not represented in the Hall of Fame a single time and would like to at least see his father, 87-year old Jacques Rougeau Sr., inducted. He posted the following:
Why is the Rougeau name not in the Hall Of Fame?
My father who will turn 87 in June should see his name inducted. My great uncle Eddy Auger, my late uncle Johnny, my brother Raymond all won championships in their career, as well as Armand. And let’s not forget all the championships that I won, including the Intercontinental Championship and 4 times world tag team champion in the WWF.
My sons Emile and Cedric are now 4th generation active wrestler, a feat unseen in any sports.
After sending many messages to the WWE’s head honcho Vince McMahon to talk about the little time my father has left on this earth and never hearing back from him, I’m going to war against him and his entire Universe that we, our family, help him build.
WWE will never wipe the name Rougeau from the hearts of Quebecers everywhere, we have done so much together…
Please share if you feel like it!”
