Former IC Champ Talks About Another WWE Montreal Screwjob Involving Bret Hart In The '80s

Great North Wrestling released the video above of Jacque Rougeau discussing winning the WWF tag team championship in Montreal in the 80's, which WWE erased from history. Jacques, along with his brother Raymond, defeated The Hart Foundation [Bret Hart and Jim Neidhart] at the Montreal Forum in front of 15,000 fans. The victory was reported in the newspapers and on news broadcasts in Montreal, but was never mentioned by WWE on television.

"Three days later, they [WWE] changed the titles back [to the Hart Foundation]," said Rougeau. "They did a screwjob in Montreal. It was just for the fans that were there that night, it was like giving them candy...Visit Wrestling Inc. then on the TV show on the weekend, it was the Harts that were champions, and they never mentioned that we won the titles in Montreal.

"I think they should have never done it, because it kind of upset the people in Montreal."
