WOW!!! The Rougeaus WERE actually Tag Team Champions in the WWE (New Video Inside)

Jacques Rougeaus (absolutely LOVE this guy!!!) ... confirms in this NEW video that they WERE actually given the Tag Team belts after defeating The Hart Foundation, but when it came to TV they put them back onto the Hart Foundation, check out this video here.



Kinda reminds me of The Rockers too with The Harts, and a little in regards to Power & Glory supposed to be facing The Harts at Wrestlemania 7, only to be changed at the last minute to The Nasty Boys (Who then won the belts).

Man, I'd have loved to have seen Power & Glory and The Rougeaus, have title reigns on TV!

Watch this Rick Martel 'Hall Of Fame' nomination video including lots of facts and quotes from other WWE superstars all behind his long overdue induction.



Come on Vince .... it's time!

I always think phantom title changes are interesting. Like Inoki beating Backlund for the WWWF Title and Bobo Brazil winning the NWA WHC. It would be cool if someone wrote up a full list of them. I wonder why the companies never go back and just acknowledge some of them. It's not like it would cause any harm.

I know, I think it's a shame taking these accolades from the talent too, I mean The Rockers still never get credited for being the Tag Team Champions either ... even though their match is out there on Youtube.

There was a crazy Colloseum Video where Owen Hart beat Bret Hart for the World title (via heel wiles!), followed by a huge locker-room clearing heel celebration. Then the result is reversed and the title taken away.

EDIT: Look what I found!!! They edited out the part where the decision was reversed, making this pretty awesome!

On the other hand, I remember the Godwinns beating the Bodydonnas off-air and actually carrying the titles on TV (for, literally, like a day).

END HOMOPHOBOPHOBIA!

Can't we get past the point in our society where people STILL think it's wrong to be a homophobe? Hating gays isn't a choice- you were born that way. Be who you are!

And it's not just about the talents accolades being acknowledge. It would add to the history of the titles. Inoki a former WWE champion adds to the prestige. Bobo Brazil being the first black World Heavyweight Champion adds to the prestige. The Rougeaus and Rockers holding the World Tag Teams titles adds to the prestige. And all the other unacknowledged title changes.

Sorry, I didn't see your response originally, and yeah it's mad isn't it, I wonder how many talents out there have had this happen to them?

Re: WOW!!! The Rougeaus WERE actually Tag Team Champions in the WWE (New Video Inside

Dude Love won the Intercontinental title from either HHH or Owen Hart (Sorry can't remember which) at a house show I was at back in late 95 through late 96. I was 50/50 on whether or not they would recognize it the next few days on TV. They didn't. But I've heard of this happening many times at house shows where they'll have a title change to please the crowd bu I always thought that was BS considering they would get mad after they realized they hadn't "really" won the title.

Yeah, it's mad though in this situation cause of how he mentions about the fans reactions, the press picking it up and everything, then them all tuning in to see The Hart Foundation back with the titles again.

I suppose with Youtube being around now though, they'll avoid doing this now ... not that they ever should have done it in the first place really.
