"We were all sitting in the cafeteria for a TV day," Rougeau recalled. "He [Michaels] just started picking on me. Maybe I wasn't in a good mood or something like that, and then it finally got to the point where he said, 'I'm not the [British] Bulldogs.' And he threatened me in front of everybody, and I had just come out of a [real life] feud with the Bulldogs. So I backed down, I turned around and left.
"So he thought he won the battle. The next day I thought I had to save face, so as soon as he walked into the arena, I told him in front of Marty Jannetty, and my brother Raymond was standing on the side, I said, 'I wanna talk to you in the room.' So he looked at me and said, 'Oh yeah?' I said, 'Don't worry, I just want to talk to you in the room.' So he walked in the room and I came up to his face and I said, 'Shawn, the next time you talk to me like you did like that, I'm going to punch your teeth out. You hear me?' And he's like putting his face down. He did the job that night."
- Speaking of Rougeau, Robert Maillet (f.k.a. Kurrgan) credited him in a new "Where Are They Now?" piece on WWE.com for recommending him for a role in 300, which spawned his movie career. Maillet also discussed accidentally striking Robert Downey, Jr. on the set of Sherlock Holmes. The inadvertent blow resulted in Downey requiring stitches.
"We didn't have a lot of time to rehearse the fight," Maillet said. "The choreography of it changed on set. I really had to aim [the punch] towards his face, I couldn't fake it. He somehow forgot to block it and I hit him on the chin. I knew I hurt him, I felt it."
Downey was fine with the incident, and even presented Maillet with a bottle of champagne the next day. With the bottle was a card stating that there were no hard feelings.
- Maillet, who most recently starred in Pacific Rim, recently wrapped up filming for three highly anticipated movies; The Young and Prodigious T.S. Spivet, The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones and Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters.
