The Mountie Jacques Rougeau Talks WWF Drug Culture In The 90’s


Former WWF Intercontinental and 3x Tag Team Champion “The Mountie” Jacques Rougeau recently sat down for an interview with It’s My Wrestling Podcast. During the interview, Rougeau revealed who had the biggest drug problem in WWF during the 90’s:

It was a walking drugstore. I hate to tell you this because I had a feud with them but the worst was The Bulldogs. They walk in the dressing room and they have needles sticking out of their butts. They were walking around like ticking time bombs. You’re walking around, and then you go in the bathroom and they were all doing it, you could see them. I could count on my hand, maybe two if I’m lucky, the guys that weren’t on steroids. Everybody was on steroids, everybody – but I can think of few. Tito Santana, Rick Martel, Mike Sharp, Steve Lombardi, me and Raymond, Lanny Poffo. There’s not many that wasn’t on steroids.

He explained why Vince McMahon allowed the use of drugs:

Vince knew that the kids, they liked the superheroes, the big guys, the guys who are all bubbled up. Vince made a lot of money with that. I remember during the time of the trial there was a few rumours backstage that we were going to court. I didn’t give a shit because we weren’t on them. We didn’t care and we were actually proud of that. A lot of the guys, I had heat with because they would come and ask me to pee-pee in a tube test or in a pot for them. I say no, I’m not getting implicated in your shit, it’s your shit. You get out of it.
