— Jacques Rougeau (a/k/a The Mountie), who held both the Intercontinental Championship and Tag Team Championship in WWE, has decided to conclude his legendary 33-year wrestling career and concentrate his efforts on his wrestling school in the Montreal borough of Laval. At the age of 50, he now feels it is time to pass the torch. Before he hangs up his boots for good, however, he will be holding a four-show retirement tour, which kicks off tomorrow night at the Verdun Auditorium.
More information on the tour can be found here.
Rougeau doesn’t feel it’s luck that he managed to avoid major injuries throughout his career. “I wasn’t better than anyone else, just more careful,” he theorized.
— Cody Rhodes cut a promo at last night’s SmackDown live event at the Allstate Arena in Chicago, Illinois saying he hates Mexicans. He subsequently lost to Chavo Guerrero.
Video of the promo has surfaced online and can be accessed here.
